With continuing miniaturization and increased wireless connectivity, the computing systems are becoming deeply embedded into everyday life and interact with processes and events of the physical world. This cyber-physical interaction has the potential to transform how humans interact with and control the physical world. Systems featuring a tight combination of, and coordination between, the system’s computational and physical elements are broadly called cyber physical systems (CPS). Examples of CPS includ medical devices and systems, aerospace systems, transportation systems, smart grids, robotic systems, and sm art spaces. Advances in key technologies are changing how these types of systems operate. For instance, the level of uncertainty in which these systems operate is increasing, creating the need for greater robustness. Pervasive wireless access is pushing these systems to unprecedented dynamic and non-deterministic situations. There is a critical demand for CPS to be adaptive to provide robustness to meet the requirements. In this talk, we illustrate few examples of CPS, and discuss the research challenges that should be addressed to achieve the dream of a smart and safe new world.
