With the rapid development of computing, control, communication and network technology, the industrial Internet has greatly expanded the mode and scale of interconnection, intercommunication and control among the objects of industrial systems. The fusion of clouds brings about a new model of industrial cooperation, which will comprehensively improve the level and efficiency of industrial production and become an enabling technology of new industrial revolution in the world. However, the immense and complexity of the object system generated by this fusion puts forward the challenges to traditional control theory. The current industrial closed-loop control is still concentrated in the industrial terminal. The industrial production scene in a form of “cloud-terminal” needs a closed-loop control from cloud site. However, the current techniques still cannot meet the real-time control requirement in this scene. The trend is to study the cloud control methods and technology. In this presentation, some basic concepts, theories and methods of cloud control systems will be given.

Bio: Prof. Xia received his Ph.D. degree in Control Theory and Control Engineering from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Beijing, China, in 2001. From 2003 to 2004, he was with the National University of Singapore as a Research Fellow, where he worked on variable structure control. From 2004 to 2006, he was with the University of Glamorgan, Pontypridd, U.K., as a Research Fellow, where he worked on networked control systems. From 2007 to 2008, he was a Guest Professor with Innsbruck Medical University, Innsbruck, Austria, where he worked on biomedical signal processing. Since 2004, he has been with the School of Automation, Beijing Institute of Technology, Beijing, first as an Associate Professor, then, since 2008, as a Professor. And in 2012, he was appointed as Xu Teli Distinguished Professor at the Beijing Institute of Technology, then in 2016, as Chair Professor. In 2012, he obtained the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars of China, and in 2016, he was honored as the Yangtze River Scholar Distinguished Professor and was supported by National High Level Talents Special Support Plan (“Million People Plan”) by the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee. In 2017, he was approved to enjoy the special government allowances of the State Council. He is now the dean of School of Automation, Beijing Institute of Technology.His current research interests are in the fields of networked control systems, robust control and signal processing, active disturbance rejection control and flight control. He has published eight monographs in Springer and John Wiley, and more than 200 papers in journals. He is an Editor in deputy of the Journal of the Beijing Institute of Technology, Associate Editor of Acta Automatica Sinica, Control Theory and Applications, International Journal of Innovative Computing, Information and Control, International Journal of Automation and Computing.
