Project Involvement
CBMx

We design and implement a Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) platform for PARC. The purpose of this platform is to provide component-based rapid prototyping environment for building custom prognostic, diagnostic, and sensor-placement solutions. The platform provides automated analytics for optimal diagnostic and prognostic decision making, comparison of algorithms, diagnostic metrics, visualization and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) interfacing, code generation for diagnostics in control, instrumentation and data cleansing, signal processing, and others. The CBM platform can service electrical, thermal, mechanical, or hybrid systems. An important application of the PARC CBM platform is to diagnose thermodynamic systems. My responsibility is to prepare a CBM use-case for thermodynamic cyber-physical system, to work on the diagnostic design aspects of the framework, to design novel algorithms and metrics and to improve state-of-the-art in diagnostic and prognostics within the framework.

CATO

CATO is a Dutch national programme (one of the participants is the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Delft University of Technology) whose aim is to study mechanisms for underground CO2 capture, transport and storage. My role was to support one of the experiments and to develop VHDL/LabVIEWTM instrument for preprocessing and storing of large amount of measurement data. The instrument allows sampling of up to 32 analogue signals with soft-adjustable sampling rate and acts as an averaging oscilloscope to improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the input signal. See http://www.co2-cato.org/ for more information.

Lydia-NG

Lydia-NG is a framework for Model-Based Diagnosis and is a continuation of my doctoral research. Lydia-NG bears resemblance to products such as DymolaTM and RodonTM, however, it targets the automation of the design and implementation of decision support and diagnostic systems. The task of diagnosing a system is typically more difficult than simulation as it requires multiple simulations for various parametric values and advanced analysis for mode identification. Lydia-NG provides modeling and scenario languages (and compilers); many state-of-the-art libraries for simulation, diagnosis, and active testing; tools and component libraries. Lydia-NG provides own optimized simulation engines similar to the ones in the Spice circuit simulator or in Modelica. See http://general-diagnostics.com/ for more information.

UWB Localization

I have participated in this large National Centers of Competence in Research (NCCR) project during a two-year postdoc in Switzerland. The idea of the UWB project was to capitalize on the research and know-how on Ultra Wide Band Technology as well as multi-robot distributed search and localization techniques acquired in previous MICS phases. One of the main goals was to build a system that allows a team of mobile robots to locate themselves and other robots with high precision (order of a cm) very frequently (maybe once per second) and securely, in order to perform collaborative, such as distributed search, coverage, or mapping. The project was focused on distributed algorithms that can be efficiently implemented and on development of low power implementations on integrated circuits. I was responsible for the design and implementation of the receiver firmware and data acquisition algorithms. This project has been carried-out in collaboration with researchers from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

Genius

Decision support system for diagnosis satellite electrical power systems. Genius takes model-based diagnosis one step closer to the end-user by analyzing the real-world case of the Goce satellite. I have applied model-based diagnosis and active testing to data simulated with the Simsat ESA operational simulator. The results showed very good diagnostic performance (measured by performance metrics) which convinced end-users that model-based diagnosis and active testing is a mature technology, ready to be used in a wide-class of real-world systems. This project has been awarded by the European Space Agency under the Innovative Triangle Initiative program.

DXF

The DXC Framework (DXF), developed jointly with NASA Ames and PARC, is a collection of programs and APIs for running and evaluating diagnostic algorithms. DXF allows systematic comparison and evaluation of diagnostic algorithms under identical experimental conditions. The key components of this framework include representation languages for the physical system description, sensor data and diagnosis results, a runtime architecture for executing diagnostic algorithms and diagnostic scenarios, and an evaluation component that computes performance metrics based on the results from diagnostic algorithm execution.

Lydia

Lydia implements a big number of algorithms developed through my doctoral work. Lydia stands for Language for sYstem DIAgnosis and it is a modeling language and a reasoning tool-kit biased (e.g., there is support for health modeling) towards model-based fault diagnosis. One of the objectives of Lydia is to to implement novel algorithms which will push the frontiers of model-based diagnosis allowing efficient reasoning over larger systems. Responsible for the framework and modeling language design and implementation and the development of fast algorithms for model-based diagnosis.

Finesse

The project Finesse (Fault dIagNosis for Embedded SyStems dEpendability) aims at the improvement of the accuracy of fault diagnosis when applied to electromechanical systems such as the Paper Handling Systems of Océ Copiers. The challenges in fault diagnosis are to infer maximum diagnostic information on the operational status of software and hardware components from a typically limited amount of (noisy) observations. Responsible for the modeling of the system and the design of algorithms for active testing, recovery and prognosis.

DIF

The Diagnosis Interchange Format (DIF) is an XML-based interchange format for Model-Based Diagnosis (MBD). Its main purposes are to allow sharing of diagnostic models, observation data and fault hypotheses, and to facilitate empirical comparative study of the performance of existing and future MBD implementations. Responsible for the DIF schema design and the construction of MBD benchmark suite.
