  • Publication number: 20240005149
    Abstract: Using the example of a logistics system including a plurality of parallel conveyor lines for piece goods, which each lead to a combining unit in the conveying direction, it is provided how the temporally and spatially extremely complex control of such an industrial installation can be simulated with the aid of neural networks such that the temporal and spatial dependences are also reliably identified by the neural network. This is effected by digital stopwatches which are applied to the neural network in addition to sensor data from the logistics system and are reset to an initial value whenever motion detectors indicate the passage of a package.

  • Publication number: 20240002159
    Abstract: A process for controlling a conveyor line for general cargo, the conveyor line including a plurality of consecutive conveyor line portions , each of which is driven by a drive. One or more sensors for detecting general cargo are located on at least some of the conveyor line portions. The drives are controlled by means of a computing unit using a machine learning model. The machine learning model accomplishes this by repeatedly receiving input data including a vector of a fixed length, each vector element being associated with a section of the conveyor line and indicating a current proportional occupancy of the respective section by an item of general cargo. Each conveyor line portion is split into a plurality of the sections of identical size. An apparatus or a system for data processing, a computer program, a computer-readable data carrier and a data carrier signal is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20240002160
    Abstract: A process for controlling a conveyor line for general cargo is provided, the conveyor line including a plurality of consecutive conveyor line portions, each of which is driven by a drive. The drives are controlled by a computing unit using a machine learning model. The machine learning model accomplishes this by getting first input data on the basis of current operating information from at least one further conveyor line that it does not control. The machine learning model has previously been trained using second input data on the basis of operating information of the at least one further conveyor line. The operating information of the at least one further conveyor line in this instance relates to measured values from sensors for detecting general cargo and speeds of conveyor line portions.

  • Publication number: 20230394199
    Abstract: In order to configure a control device, a predefined default configuration data set is read in. Furthermore, a deviation from the default configuration data set as well as a control performance are determined for each of a large number of generated test configuration data sets. In addition, a Pareto optimization is performed for the large number of test configuration data sets, wherein the deviation as well as the control performance are used as Pareto objective criteria. A configuration data set resulting from the Pareto optimization is then selected to configure the control device.

  • Publication number: 20230244792
    Abstract: To protect against the theft of a machine learning module predicting sensor signals, the machine learning module is trained, on the basis of a timeseries of a sensor signal, to predict a later signal value of the sensor signal as first output signal and to output a scatter width of the predicted later signal value as second output signal. The machine learning module is expanded, and the expanded machine learning module is transferred to a user. When an input signal is supplied, a first and a second output signal are derived from the input signal. The checking module then checks whether a later signal value of the input signal lies outside a scatter width indicated by the second output signal by a signal value indicated by the first output signal. An alarm signal is output depending on the check result, if later signal values lie outside the scatter width.

  • Publication number: 20230092466
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for configuring a system model and a computer-implemented method for configuring a sensor model. There is also described a computer-implemented method for determining future switching behavior of a system unit, with the following steps: a) receiving the configured system model; b) receiving the configured sensor model, c) the configured sensor model being a probability distribution regarding how the sensor unit will behave in the specific time period; d) establishing at least one random sample of behavior of a sensor unit by sampling from the probability distribution; and e) determining the future switching behavior of the system unit and/or at least one associated statistical value on the basis of the established random sample by means of the trained system model. There is also described a corresponding computer program product.

  • Publication number: 20220415170
    Abstract: Real state information, which influences the switching times of a light signal system, is supplied as input signals to a first neural network in a fixed time cycle. The first neural network calculates estimated state information as a replacement for real state information or parts of the real state information which are not received in good time or are received incorrectly in the fixed time cycle. This estimated state information is output to artificial intelligence which predicts the switching times. The first neural network allows the artificial intelligence to also make good predictions for the switching times of signal groups when one of the many communication paths involved fails or is overloaded. It is therefore possible to predict signal group states in the fixed time cycle in real time with a high degree of robustness and tolerance with respect to gaps in the time cycle of the real state information provided.

  • Publication number: 20220397887
    Abstract: A method for configuration of a controlled drive application of a logistics system. The logistics system includes parallel conveying paths for piece goods. Each conveying path includes sub-conveying paths which are each accelerated or delayed to merge the piece goods on a single output conveying path with defined spacing. A system model of the logistics system is firstly determined by operating data of the logistics system which include sensor values of the logistics system and changes to control variables. A control function is determined, which includes configuration data for the drives, with at least one control action being performed on the precondition of one or more performance features that are to be achieved in the system model, during which control action the operating data is simulated for a plurality of time steps.
