Models of the Monitoring and Control of Natural and Technological Objects

Andrejs Romanovs, Arnis Lektauers, Oksana Soshko, Viacheslav Zelentsov


Monitoring of different natural and technological objects is essential in the modern world to ensure a safe and comfortable people’s lifestyle; it helps to understand how the planet and its climate change, what role is played by anthropogenic and technological factors in these changes. Different methods and decision-making models are used in the monitoring and control of natural and technological objects; this paper provides an overview of the commonly used models of ground-space monitoring of natural and technological objects, which have been analysed in the framework of the project INFROM.
