Three papers from DXC have been published in the DX Proceedings. You can find the DX proceedings online at http://dx11.informatik.tu-muenchen.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/DX2011_Workshop_Proceedings.pdf. The three papers are also available on this site in the Files section under DX Papers.
If you are not already aware all participants will be allowed to submit a paper that will be included in the DXC section of the DX proceedings. Of course this is optional and you can choose not to submit a paper. However I would strongly recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity to get another publication on your resume. You can write about the technical approach of your algorithm or about specific problems you faced in trying to solve this problem and what you did to overcome them or any thoughts related to DXC and your algorithm. You can see some examples in the DXC sections from last 2 years (https://www.phmsociety.org/events/workshop/dx/10/proceedings and http://photon.isy.liu.se/dx09/papers/proceedings-dx09.pdf )
The procedure would involve submission of a first version which will be quickly reviewed by the DXC organizing committee. Please note that goal is not an in depth technical review but to make sure there are no major issues with the paper in terms of formatting or typos or factual errors etc. Paper format and size are as per DX stipulations (Look at the bottom of this link http://dx11.informatik.tu-muenchen.de/?page_id=2). However the submission process would be an email to Scott Poll (cced on this email) with the paper as an attachment. The following is the planned schedule for the paper submission process
Sep 12 (Monday) – Initial version of papers due
Sep 16 (Friday) – Reviews from DXC program committee due
Sep 21 (Wednesday) – Final Camera Ready versions of papers due
Sep 23 (Friday) – Ship the DXC proceedings to the DX organizers
Please let us know immediately if you are planning on submitting a paper.
As shown in the example DA, please make sure the FaultTime parameter is given to the framework in seconds, not milliseconds. You might get an incorrect response from the Oracle otherwise.
Java example: fpm.put("FaultTime", Value.v(100.0)); // seconds since scenario start
C++ example: fpm["FaultTime"] = new RealValue(100); // seconds since scenario start
The deadline for submission of final version of Diagnostic Algorithms has been extended to August 29th. We will use the latest submission as of August 30th . Please the same procedure that you used for placeholder DA submissions i.e., go to http://fdir.org/upload.php and use username: dxc and password: dxc(). All of your algorithm files including all dependencies should be packed into a single zip file which should be uploaded. Please prefix the filename with your algorithm name i.e., the file should be of the form ALGORITHMNAME_anythingelsehere.zip .
Extraneous commas in the scenario files for 1251, 1285, 1316, 1323, and 1330 have been removed. Updated sample data for diagnostic problem I have been posted. See the Files section.
Diagnostic Problems I and II will not include any scenarios with battery failure mode AbruptParasiticLoad.
We have posted another nominal scenario for Diagnostic Problem II, in addition to the DXC10 data that was posted previously. This scenario is one of the new scenarios that have been acquired for the rematch. Note that battery 3 was replaced since last year's competition. The noise characteristics for some of the sensors are also slightly different (see for example FT520).
You can find the .txt, .mat, and .scn files for this scenario in the Files section or from the appropriate page in the Tracks section.
The Software Catalogs description file for the Software track has been updated to reflect the latest changes on how the catalog information is stored.
The DXC Framework files for Windows and Linux operating systems are available in the Files Section. Please note that there are NO CHANGES from last year's framework. However last year a patch was released for the Oracle as a separate zip file. This year's framework files include the patched files.
Sample data for the synthetic track (DP III) have been published. You can download the archive from the Files section.
