Cyber-Physical and Embedded Systems

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) require the ability to manage both their computational and physical resources. In the context of a feedback control system, this means the CPS must achieve required performance, efficiency, safety and reliability through regulation of its physical effectors (e.g. propulsive, steering, switches) and through regulation of its computational resources (e.g. processing and communication). To-date, primarily, research has been specific to one of these effector classes. Control systems engineers focus on regulating physical actuation but have developed techniques to account for the effects of limited computational resources. Conversely, real-time systems experts have focused on regulating computational resources but are still able to include physical control system performance metrics in computational resource scheduling. This project is currently supported by the National Science Foundation on the Grant No. 0930813 and 1446117.
