Description

In cyber-physical systems (CPSs), computational and physical resources are tightly coupled. A CPS usually comprises a network of physically distributed embedded sensors and actuators equipped with computing and communicating capabilities. Although each individual device is fairly inept at monitoring or regulating the physical substratum, the coordinated action of the individual network nodes has the potential for unprecedented capabilities. We are interested in various computational challenges associated with realizing CPSs, particularly in the domains of health care, electrical grid, and “Internet of things.”
