A growing number of the physical objects with which we surround ourselves contain small computers that manage a wide range of functions. The challenge is to ensure that these small computers adapt optimally to the contexts in which they are being used. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) is a system of cooperating computer-based elements that control physical objects.
We conduct research into the adaptability, usability, efficiency, functionality, reliability, and security of cyber-physical systems, and study models, programming languages, and analytical techniques that support this. CPS is used, for example, in infrastructure (water and energy supply, roads, and railways) and health.
