Fault diagnosis and prognosis, as a technology to ensure the safety and reliability of systems, is playing an increasingly essential role in industrial applications. Existing diagnosis and prognosis methods mostly employ a centralized architecture, however, with the continuous increase in complexity of industrial systems, the centralized methods are becoming increasingly computationally expensive, and do not scale well as the size of the system increases. Therefore, distributed architecture offers an effective solution to fault diagnosis and prognosis framework of complex industrial systems.
Meanwhile, emerging technologies such as intelligence algorithms (e.g., competitive swarm optimizer, fuzzy logic, artificial neural network, etc.) and deep learning are undergoing rapid development in recent years and have potentials to promote further development of fault diagnosis and prognosis.
However, how to effectively incorporate artificial intelligence technologies with distributed fault diagnosis and prognosis architectures is an important and challenging problem. This special session aims at providing timely solutions for the above-proposed problems through bringing together the researchers and practitioners from industry and academia.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Prognostics and System Health Management
  • Condition-Based Maintenance Strategies
  • Process Performance Monitoring
  • Distributed Fault Diagnosis and Prognosis
  • Artificial Intelligence Based Distributed Fault Diagnosis and Prognosis
  • Intelligence Algorithms Based Distributed Fault Estimation
