TC-CPS: Time-Critical Cyber Physical Systems

TC-CPS: Time-Critical Cyber Physical Systems



As digital computing and communication become faster, cheaper and less power consuming, these capabilities are increasingly embedded in many objects and structures in the physical environment. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are co-engineered interacting networks of physical and computational components. These systems will provide the foundation of our critical infrastructure, form the basis of emerging and future smart services, and improve our quality of life in many areas. For instance, a multitude of CPS devices and applications exist in industrial, transportation, medical, home-security, building automation, emergency management, power, and many other systems, which serve critical functions in our lives. However, there are several issues and challenges remain open in this field, such as robust and real-time communication, network heterogeneity, data security and privacy, safety, etc. The workshop is technically supported by RISE SICS Västerås, Mälardalen University, FIC, and SafeCOP projects.
