Trends in non-linear MIMO Objects Control in the Era of Industry 4.0: The Use of Artificial Neural Networks

  • 1 AGH University of Krakow, Poland


The Industry 4.0 revolution has significantly influenced the control of non-linear Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems, particularly through the application of artificial neural networks (ANNs). This paper explores current trends in the control of non-linear MIMO objects, emphasizing the role of ANNs in enhancing performance and efficiency. Key developments, methodologies, and case studies are reviewed to illustrate the impact of ANNs on non-linear MIMO control
