Event-Condition-Action Systems for Reconfigurable Logic Control

  title={Event-Condition-Action Systems for Reconfigurable Logic Control},
  author={E. Emanuel Almeida and Jonathan E. Luntz and Dawn M. Tilbury},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering},
The contribution of this paper is the introduction of the event-condition-action (ECA) paradigm for the design of modular logic controllers that are reconfigurable. ECA rules have been used extensively to specify the behavior of active database and expert systems and are recognized as a highly reconfigurable tool to design reactive behavior. This paper develops a method to design modular logic controllers whose dynamics are governed by ECA rules, with the ultimate goal of producing… CONTINUE READING
