Spring 2010

seminar on cyber physical systems (cps)

(CS259s / CS295)


Instructors: Prof. Nikil Dutt and Prof. Eli Bozorgzadeh, Computer Science Department

When: Thurs. 2:00-4:30 p.m.

Location:  DBH 4011

Brief Description:

Cyber physical systems focus on integration of the system computation and physical components. Although embedded systems research targets generation of systems for highly constrained and tightly embedded applications, the contribution has been loosely coupled with sensors and physical elements of the systems. As a result, CPS aims at network of computational components and physical components as opposed to only (part of) computational components of the target system. With advances in CPS, the system development for applications such as automotives, health care, and transportation will be improved in term of reliability, integrity, and adaptivity.

CPS is recognized as a key area of research in the US as well as in Europe and Asia. The term cyber physical system is very broad and encompasses various research topics from software and modeling to systems, networking, and control in computer science and engineering. In this weekly seminar, we first plan to introduce cyber physical systems, what CPS systems are and what differentiate them from embedded systems. Then, we will discuss several related papers.
