Abstract [en]

Industry 4.0 is the emerging trend of the industrial automation. Millimeter-wave (mmWave) communication is a prominent technology for wireless networks to support the Industry 4.0 requirements. The availability of tractable accurate interference models would greatly facilitate performance analysis and protocol development for these networks. In this paper, we investigate the accuracy of an interference model that assumes impenetrable obstacles and neglects the sidelobes. We quantify the error of such a model in terms of statistical distribution of the signal to noise plus interference ratio and of the user rate for outdoor mmWave networks under different carrier frequencies and antenna array settings. The results show that assuming impenetrable obstacle comes at almost no accuracy penalty, and the accuracy of neglecting antenna sidelobes can be guaranteed with sufficiently large number of antenna elements. The comprehensive discussions of this paper provide useful insights for the performance analysis and protocol design of outdoor mmWave networks.

Abstract [en]

Wireless networks are undergoing a transition from connecting people to connecting things, which will allow human interaction with the physical world in a real-time fashion, for example, Tactile Internet, industrial automation, self-driving vehicles, and remote surgery. Therefore, future wireless networks need to support real-time control since it is the essential function enabling such emerging applications. In this article, some fundamental design capabilities needed to realize real-time control in future wireless networks are discussed, with primary emphasis given to communication-control because both communication and control systems have strong dynamics and interdependencies, and they tightly interact with each other. A case study is provided to demonstrate the necessity of such co-design.

Abstract [en]

Wireless networks for industrial control systems are promising because of their reduced cost, flexible structure, and improved long-term reliability. However, wireless control systems are vulnerable to probing-free attacks (PFAs), which are not possible in wired control systems. Thus, wireless control systems must be made as secure as wired systems. Physical (PHY)-layer security technology (PHY-Sec) may be a new strategy for securing industrial wireless control systems. Among all PHY-Sec technologies, PHY-layer authentication is the first step for PHYSec in industrial wireless control systems. This article discusses the principles of PHY-Sec, its application to wireless control systems, and potential research directions.

Abstract [en]

To meet a set of stringent requirements for wireless control in critical applications, the described wireless high-performance (WirelessHP) communication system represents a breakthrough regarding microsecondlevel latency, but the proof of ultrahigh reliability is still lacking. To this aim, we propose the incorporation of channel coding in its physical layer. Building on a customized protocol stack and a hardware demonstrator, we prove the effectiveness of channel coding and suggest further research in this area.

Abstract [en]

This article provides an overview of the development and standardizations of connectivity solutions for enabling the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It also highlights key IIoT connectivity technologies and platforms that have the potential of driving the next industrial revolution. In addition, the article addresses the main challenges standing in the way of realizing the full potential of the IIoT, namely attaining secure connectivity and managing a vastly fragmented ecosystem of connectivity solutions and platforms. Finally, IIoT connectivity challenges are illustrated by the example of future building automation.
