Abstract

Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) enable a cross-linkage of digital and physical realms to strengthen control, monitoring, and planning capabilities. Despite these major advantages, CPSs are only marginally leveraged in hydraulic actuation, a widespread technology of paramount importance in many fields of industry. Thus, this paper aims to explore the prospects of closing this gap. A conceptual framework is proposed, combining human and artificial intelligence to address one or more key aspects of hydraulic systems (e.g., reliability, performance, or energy efficiency). The benefits and the technological barriers of this approach are pinpointed in preparation for the extensive use of CPSs. It is, in fact, clear that such a change of paradigm can transform hydraulics by bringing it into the 21st Century.
