Cyber-Physical Systems

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) research at MPI-SWS explores the design, implementation, and analysis of computing systems that interact with the physical world. Such systems are subject to stringent timing and resource constraints as well as uncertainties in the operating environment. Nevertheless, they must operate safely and reliably. Recent projects in CPS include the model-based synthesis of control systems, the testing and verification of timed and hybrid systems, the formal verification of real-time scheduling theory, the design and analysis of predictable real-time locking protocols, and the implementation and evaluation of multicore real-time schedulers.
