My project:

I.        Model-based systems engineering approach for CPS development (2014-2018)

This is an ongoing project aiming to create a development platform for CPS. Current achievements of this project are to provide a service-oriented tool-chain development framework and an MBSE tool-chain supporting domain-specific views, co-simulation, tool-integration, process management and design automation.

II.        Towards to Systems Engineering Approach for CPS Prognostic Health Management System (PHM) Development (2016-2018)

This is a pilot project aiming to develop a systems engineering toolbox supporting EPHM system development. Systems engineering standards, such as ISO15288, ISO42010 and SAE standards, such as APR 4761 and APR4754 are mainly considered during the systems engineering toolbox development. By using the proposed toolbox, a new development artifact of PHM based on SE and MBSE is expected to be designed based on the traditional development artifact of PHM systems.

III.        Integrated Mechanical and Electrical Data Management System (2011-2013)

This project aimed to create an integrated-development platform for mechatronics systems. 1) A management system of C/S structure was developed with an emphasis on management of models, data, interfaces based on Simulink. 2) A virtual environment was developed based on Simulink which provided support for co-simulation between AMESim, Saber, Flowmaster, Simplorer and Simulink. 3) In order to improve the efficiency of co-simulation, natural networks simulators can be trained to replace related software during co-simulation.

IV.        Digital Integrated Control Software & Hardware Development and Hardware-in-loop Simulation Verification Platform on CPS (2010-2011)

This project aimed to verify the functional requirements on the view of retracting landing gear . The verification was implemented on an integrated view of the hydraulic, control and multi-body dynamics systems based on co-simulations among LMS Motion, AMESim and Matlab/Simulink.


V.        Mechanical design in the quadruped robot (2008-2010)

This project aimed to design a quadruped walking machine from a view of the innovative design of the mechanical systems. As the team lead, I contribute to the design, development and prototype of the quadruped walking machine.
