Since chemical processes are usually run in steady-state for long periods of time, saving a few dollars an hour can have significant long term effects.

An intelligent controller is described for an automated vehicle planning its trajectory based on sensor and communication data received. The intelligent controller is designed using a stochastic learning automaton. Using the data received from on-board sensors, two automata (for lateral and longitudinal actions) are capable of learning the best possible(More)
