Abstract: The plenary panel session invites four distinguished scholars to share their research experience and original perspectives on “Industrial Internet Based Control: Technology and Application”. They will present the research progress and achievements on industrial operating system based process-automation and business-automation, design methods and implementation techniques in networked predictive control, research and development of intelligent garbage recovery for unmanned boat, cloud control and decision in industry cyber-physical systems, in addition, they will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities in these areas. Through the dialogue and interaction with these renowned experts, we aim to gain a deeper understanding of some fundamental and emerging issues in technology and applications of industrial internet based control.
