Distributed computer control systems 1988: proceedings of the Eighth IFAC workshop, Vitznau, Switzerland, 13-15 September 1988, Volume 8
Published for the International Federation of Automatic Control by Pergamon Press, 1989 - Technology & Engineering - 133 pages
Continuing the forward thinking of previously held distributed computer control systems meetings, this volume discusses both the positive and negative views on trends in OSI-based communications; the development of the fieldbus; the importance of the incorporation into basic real time operating systems to be used for distributed systems of concepts such as time-stamping and access to global time-bases; and the influence of artificial-intelligence-based technologies on the distributed computer control world.
