SAC 2018 - Cyber-Physical Systems Track
Cyber-physical Systems (CPS) are engineered systems whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled, and integrated by a computing and communication core embedded in all types of objects and structures in the physical environment. CPS has emerged as a unifying name for systems where the cyber parts, i.e., the computing and communication parts, and the physical parts are tightly integrated, both at the design time and during operation. Such systems use computations and communication deeply embedded in and interacting with physical processes to add new capabilities to physical systems. Such systems must be operated safely, dependably, securely, efficiently and in real-time. These cyber-physical systems include a wide range of applications, such as transportation, healthcare, automotive, energy, manufacturing, entertainment, consumer electronics, environmental monitoring, aerospace, robotics, etc., all of which will be essential pieces of our social infrastructure. Therefore, advances in this field will have great technical, economic and societal impacts in the near future. However, the vision of CPS faces some core challenges of multidisciplinary research, as their relevant technologies appear in diverse areas of science and engineering. Therefore, there is an emerging consensus that new methodologies and tools need to be developed to support cyber-physical systems.
