• DOMINANT TECHNOLOGIES IN “INDUSTRY 4.0”

    THE APPROACH TO CUT RELEVANT AIRSPACE AREA FOR FLIGHTS PLANNING AND AUTOMATED ROUTING

    Industry 4.0, Vol. 4 (2019), Issue 5, pg(s) 220-222

    Airspace is now one of the most frequently mentioned environments when discussing technologies of autonomous or unmanned vehicles or machines. There is a number of technologies developed to support unmanned flying vehicles (UFV) and so called air drones. The actual influence of such kind of machines on transport industry is crucial. It is also obvious, that many modern military operations involve UFV with built-in AI or remote control. Nevertheless, one of important problems for any flying vehicle (aircraft or drone either) is to plan the most suitable route satisfying all necessary primary and collateral requirements: reach destination, consume minimum fuel or energy, follow the safest areas, avoid adverse circumstances etc. Among the tasks to build the effective route for the flight we find an important problem to cut a relevant area in airspace to perform route search. This research is dedicated to discuss and ground the basics of a reliable approach to solve this problem.

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARISON OF UNIVERSITY EDUCATION QUALITY ON THE BASE OF MODELING VALUE INDEX

    Industry 4.0, Vol. 4 (2019), Issue 1, pg(s) 41-45

    The article is dedicated to studying and comparing the indicators used to evaluate the educational activities quality of universities from various countries. In particular, the indicators of tuition fees, and expenses for the separate indices of inputs for educational activities are being investigated. The ratio of universities tuition fees to incomes of the educational services consumers is being simulated.

  • BUSINESS & “INDUSTRY 4.0”

    OPPORTUNITIES OF IMPLEMENTATION OF “INDUSTRY 4.0” FOR DEVELOPMENT OF TRANSPORT INDUSTRY IN UKRAINE

    Industry 4.0, Vol. 3 (2018), Issue 2, pg(s) 94-96

    Due to intentions of Ukrainian economy to join European Union there are many threats and opportunities on the way. Ukraine has a number of industries producing goods, products and services needed in Europe. The growth of economic ties with EU makes Ukrainian manufactures stronger and has become a question of key importance during last decade. Meantime, Ukraine remains within rather tense conditions of technological lag but with some promising abilities in agriculture and food industries supplemented with a great potential in area of information technologies. This distinctive combination of abilities make it feasible for Ukraine both to become a strong partner for EU and to do a great leap of industrial progress within “Industry 4.0” concept. Nevertheless, one of crucial problems for Ukraine is to build an innovative infrastructure to meet requirements of intellectual transport system conforming to EU “Industry 4.0”. This research paper is focused on discussion of these new features of transport industry and opportunities for Ukraine to make its transport industry a leading advantage for the whole economy. Those drastic changes in Ukrainian transport would procure an excellence for other industries implementing “Industry 4.0”, the same as to become a test ground and an exclusive source of experience for EU on “Industry 4.0” implementation.
