Modern transport systems are characterized by the development and implementation of intelligent transport technologies. Today, dynamic forecast models are not used in practice in the operation of a passenger terminal. Decision making is based on some regulatory values for passenger traffic, but this is not sufficient for efficient terminal management. Modern passenger terminals are characterized by dynamic process variability and consideration of diverse options, taking into account the criteria of safety, reliability analysis, and the continuous research of passenger processing. For any modern marine passenger terminal, it is necessary to use the tool to simulate passenger flows in dynamics. Only in this way it is possible to obtain the analytical information and use it for decision making when solving the problem of the amount of personnel required for passenger service, transport safety, some forecasting tasks and so on. Of particular relevance is the choice of the mathematical transport model and the practical conditions for the implementation of the model in the real terminal operation. In this article, the analysis technique of intelligent simulation-based terminal services provides a new mathematical model of passenger movement inside the terminal and presents a new software instrument. Moreover, the conditions of implementation of some transportation models during the operation of marine passenger terminal are examined. The study represents an example of analytical information used for the forecast of the terminal operations, the analysis of the workload and the efficiency of the organization of the marine terminal.
Modern processes in the world economy directly affect the development and changes in sea passenger ports and their infrastructure. The principles of organization of the “city-sea passenger port” system are changing and becoming more complex. Recently there has been a significant increase in passenger traffic and cruise ship and ferry traffic in Baltic Sea. Since these objects are complex technical systems consisting of many elements, in their study it is necessary to use the system approach, to solve the problem of structure synthesis and the determination of objective functions. The objective of this publication was to study how the forecast for the development of demand for sea passenger ports (number cruise ships and passengers flow for next year) could be done by combining simulation and forecast functions. These tasks depend on the qualitative construction of specialized information simulation models. Such subsystems should be used by passenger port management for both operational everyday tasks and strategic tasks. One of the main goals of the forecast is the qualitative construction of an analytical function work of the terminal that determines the passenger flow based on real data. The article considers the solution of this problem by using the method of average growth rate and polynomial extrapolation. In the article, the characteristics and infrastructural features of the passenger ports of St. Petersburg are given, and the main directions of development based on the results of simulation are considered. The paper discusses advantages of using such forecast and their introduction in the early stages of operation of the terminal. The study represents an example of analytical information used for the forecast of the terminal load, the analysis of the workload and efficiency of the organization of the marine terminal in operational tasks using analytical function based on real data
The purpose of the article is to present an analytical system that allows users to process data necessary for an industrial risk analysis and management, to monitor the level of industrial safety in a given site, and to fulfil essential tasks within the field of occupational safety. This system’s implementation will make the industrial safety management at industrial sites more effective. Multifactorial, probabilistic, determined models of accidents’ hazard and severity indexes are integrated into the computing core of the Information and Analytical System. Then, statistical methods determine the risk assessment of occupational injuries and diseases. The Information and Analytical System for Hazard Level Assessment and Forecasting Risk of Emergencies in the Republic of Kazakhstan allows users to work efficiently with large volumes of information and form a united analytical electronic report about the state of industrial safety. The main objective of the monitoring system is to conduct a comprehensive analysis and assessment of the state of accidents, traumas and occupational sickness rates at industrial sites, the results being classified by the degree of hazard and insalubrity of manufacture. The introduction of the computer monitoring system in the specialized services of the Emergency Management Committee and the Ministry of Investment and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and at industrial enterprises throughout the country, will allow users to analyse the state of the industrial and occupational safety constantly and objectively; as a consequence, the implementation will go a long way towards comprehensively approaching the task of increasing safety levels at industrial sites.
Distinguishing outliers from normal data in wireless sensor networks has been a big challenge in the anomaly detection domain, mostly due to the nature of the anomalies, such as software or hardware failures, reading errors or malicious attacks, just to name a few. In this article, we introduce an anomaly detection-based OPF classifier in the aforementioned context. The results are compared against one-class support vector machines and multivariate Gaussian distribution. Additionally, we also propose to employ meta-heuristic optimization techniques to finetune the OPF classifier in the context of anomaly detection in wireless sensor networks.

We present the simple microprobe for the investigation of crude oil by a thermal desorption photoionization coupled to Orbitrap mass spectrometry. The droplet of crude oil was placed on the heating element with controllable temperature. The temperature was linearly increased, and crude oil vapors were ionized by a vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) lamp and detected by Orbitrap mass spectrometer. Use of modified Orbitrap allowed introduction of the heating element and VUV lamp directly into the ion funnel and performing experiment not only at atmosphere pressure but also at 20, 10, and 5 torr. We observed that at high pressure protonated CHN compounds dominate in the spectrum, while at the low pressure CH compounds dominate. Similar to previously reported thermogravimetry coupled to photoionization or chemical ionization mass spectrometry systems we were able to separate compounds with different desorption energy and reliably detect low-abundant compounds. Also, we were able to determine the desorption temperature for each compound of the crude oil. We found that temperature of desorption increases linearly with m/z for compounds that belong to the same homology series (same Kendrick mass defect). This may serve as indirect evidence that such compounds differ only by the length of aliphatic chains attached to some basic structure.

In this paper, a problem of robust anisotropy-based control with regional pole assignment for descriptor systems with norm-bounded parametric uncertainties is concerned. The goal is to find a state-feedback control law, which guarantees desirable disturbance attenuation level from stochastic input with unknown covariance to controllable output of the closed-loop system, and ensures, that all finite eigenvalues of the closed-loop system belong to the given region inside the unit disk for all uncertainties from the given set.
The use of the MRI-navigation system ensures accurate targeting of TMS. This, in turn, results in TMS motor mapping becoming a routinely used procedure in neuroscience and neurosurgery. However, currently, there is no standardized methodology for assessment of TMS motor-mapping results. Therefore, we developed TMSmap – free standalone graphical interface software for the quantitative analysis of the TMS motor mapping results (http://tmsmap.ru/). In addition to the estimation of standard parameters (such as the size of cortical muscle representation and the center of gravity location), it allows estimation of the volume of cortical representations, excitability profile of the cortical surface map and the overlap between cortical representations. The input data for the software includes the coordinates of the coil position (or electric field maximum) and the corresponding response in each stimulation point. TMSmap has been developed for versatile assessment and comparison of TMS maps relating to different experimental interventions including, but not limited to longitudinal, pharmacological and clinical studies (e.g., stroke recovery). To illustrate the use of TMSmap we provide examples of the actual TMS motor-mapping analysis of two healthy subjects and one chronic stroke patient.
Introduction. The gained experience in the field of building automation and IoT technologies yields a new approach to the management of engineering subsystems that provides stated parameters of operation quality throughout the entire building lifecycle. This paper explores compensatory and predictive algorithms in the scope of the aforementioned approach to manifest control over building climate parameters utilizing IoT controllers. This research aims to improve the management efficiency of smart house engineering subsystems through the implementation of a control system (CS) capable to compensate disturbances and predict their variations using an IoT controller and an analytical server.
Materials and methods. In order to improve the quality of control, various algorithms based on analysis of data collected from controllers can be employed. The collected data about the object accumulated over the entire period of operation can be used to build a model for the purposes of predictive control. The predictive control allows forecasting the parameters having an effect on the object and compensating it beforehand under the inertia conditions. The continuous adaptation and adjustment of the CS model to operating conditions allows permanent optimizing the settings of the control algorithm ensuring the efficient operation of local control loops.
Results. The CS is based on an IoT controller and able to predict and compensate potential disturbances. The compensation algorithm is updated depending on the behavior of the object properties, quality of control and availability of data most suitable for identification.
Conclusions. The capabilities of the control system based on the IoT controller and generation of a compensatory and predictive control signal with the algorithm hosted at a cloud server are demonstrated on the indoor temperature control model. The following simulation models of the indoor temperature variation process are considered: model without CS, model with proportional plus integral controller with disturbance compensation and model with IoT controller-based CS with disturbance compensation. Structural and parametric identification of the models are accomplished by means of active experiment.

This work considers the problem of designing the architecture of a network management system for a generic module of a modern automated building. To improve the efficiency of building operation given the large influx of data, the architecture of the network management system implements multicontour management of a generic modules using cloud scenarios. Building operation efficiency is enhaced by using data mining blocks in the external control loop to detect the systematic behavior of users of a generic building module. This is based on data from IoT controllers, statistical processing of information on the system's server and generation of control actions in automatic and / or automated modes. As a technological base of the building management complex, a set of Internet of Things devices (IoT) is considered. The implementation of control algorithms for a typical intelligent building module is described by a software program model, for example, in the form of logical structure algorithms
In many ways the prospects of industry in Russian Federation are determined by the implementation of the National technological initiative which aims to create a new economy within the “Industry 4.0” concept. Considering the prospects of development of the domestic industry for the next decades, it should be noted that today the corresponding process in many respects is defined by the realization of the National Technological Initiative (NTI). The analysis of the NTI structure shows that one of the major directions of such development would be the implementation of advanced manufacturing technologies and the creation of the Future Factories. A preliminary literature overview in the respective area has shown that most of the studies consider the questions of product design as a basic part of product lifecycle. At the same time there is a lack of methodological developments in the area of design of technological processes within advanced manufacturing systems. For this reason, it is important to investigate the development of instruments for justification of manufacturing systems functioning within the «Industry 4.0» concept. We have offered to use the advanced paradigms of imitating modeling, the discrete, the event and the agent, for the description of basic and auxiliary processes realized in production systems. We have determined the main requirements for the processing of manufacturing systems.Comparing such requirements with the specifics of the existing approaches to organizational design of manufacturing systems provided a basis for concluding that the simulation modeling approach is effective. The justification of the technological process parameters by using simulation modeling is substantiated, the main principles are defined.
Some theoretical aspects for determining the required number of mobile groups involved in objects security assurance from the impact of various negative factors have been considered. A mathematical model, that allow substantiate the required number of groups for timely response to negative factors has been developed. The total number of response teams has been determined and corrected with account for probability of false alarm related to several technical detection means. The influence of placement for technical detection means, and response teams, as well as of negative factors’ characteristics on the catch line tailoring has been shown. The negative factor’s catch line sizes in dependence to the detection means’ concrete location have been calculated. A certainty increase for operation of technical detection means is carried out by determining the regularity of triggering moments, taking into account the appearance of false alarms. An inspection for received signals’ certainty is carried out by guard personnel from response teams. The developed model will allow increase the security system’s response time to the negative factor. The specified models will allow develop the software for modeling of real situations.
The results of the information technologies intensive development and implementation processes, recently defined as digitalization, were the basis of the significant changes in the domestic economy. At the same time, it is important to understand that digitalization process require an appropriate response in order to create an environment, which promote to development of strategically valuable economic sectors, include the industrial manufacturing. These circumstances determined the motivation of implementing at the state level such programs as the Digital Economy and the National Technological Initiative, that are aimed at creating conditions for the development of industry in the context of the digitalization.
Focusing on the logistics systems and industrial enterprise supply chains functioning processes, it is important to note, that new opportunities are opened due to development and implementation of information technologies in the economy digitalization context. These opportunities consist in the exchange of information between the individual production, logistics and auxiliary systems and their elements, as well as the products and the external environment, which in general will allow forming big data sets. Herewith, the result of processing the relevant data sets will form basis of the continuous improvement processes through self-organization and self-decision by the active system components.
At the initial stages of the study, a literature overview was done in the field of logistics system organizing within the contemporary concepts of industrial production development, including the Industry 4.0 concept. This has shown that on the one hand, there is a significant impact of digitalization processes on the organization and functioning of logistics system, but on the other hand, there is a lack of methodological developments in the area of these systems design.
For this reason, it is important to investigate the development of instruments for justification of logistics processes functioning characteristics within digitalization context. For this, a generalized structure of the digital logistics system was offered and the requirements for the functioning processes were determined. Taking into account a special aspects of this structure and functioning requirements, we offered to use simulation modeling tools in the organizational design problems. It is proposed to use traditional paradigms of simulation, which include discrete-event and agent-based modelling. On a separate note the possibility of applying the approach at the junction of these two paradigms, which implying the use of their main advantages: using the discrete-event modeling in the simulation of functioning process where the logistics system is describes as the multi-agent environment.
This article aims at the improvement of the engineer training quality in the field of "computer Science and engineering" using on-line and blended learning technology. We consider studying of modern computers architecture as an example. The complexity of the modeling object, the multi-faceted process of studying the computer architecture, the limited period – are the factors that determine the difficulty of the problem. A computer simulator allows you to explore the stages and features of the calculation process in dynamics with the necessary detail. It can't be done any other way. Also, computer modeling creates a risk-free environment that allows you to safely and repeatedly apply and analyze possible scenarios, decomposition of computer nodes and configuring its components for different modes of operation. This is either impossible to perform on real devices or may result in computer failure under students’ inept actions. The paper discusses the problems of the computer units and devices simulating, the requirements for models in terms of solving educational and research problems. We propose a structure of the simulating complex, visualization methods of computer architecture components and principles of computer system device’s operation, algorithms descriptions of the modeling programs. Since the computer architecture implies a whole complex of concepts, including functional and structural organization, software and hardware interaction algorithms, the considered simulating complex consists of several simulators: step-by-step operation of the superscalar processor core; cache coherence protocols in multiprocessor (multi-core) systems; algorithms for fast address translation with the help of Translation Lookaside Buffer (TLB); various technologies for multithreaded data processing; pipeline processing of the machine instructions stream; memory paging algorithms; cache mapping algorithms; cache replacement algorithms; etc. The main functions and features of each model are considered. An important advantage of the proposed simulating complex is the ability to vary the parameters of models of specific computer devices, which makes it possible to explore the resource/time characteristics of data processing by computer system devices.
