    Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are based on networked embedded software systems which connect computational entities in a collaborative manner with physical entities of the real world to achieve an overall purpose of its users. Together with available content and services on the World Wide Web, they build networks of systems that integrate with the physical environment. This will lead to radical cha... View full abstract»

    In the article, cyber-physical systems is defined as complex systems that are able to control and coordinate physical and organizational processes on a local and a global scale via the use of information and communication technology. It links previously disjoint technical and organizational processes facilitates the provision of new products and, especially, services, exceeding the already substan... View full abstract»

    Cyber-physical systems are not developed as standalone systems, but in conjunction with other systems and are subsequently aggregated to some super system (i.e. a car or an airplane). Hence, cyber-physical systems share parts of their context with one another and depend on their mutual functionality. Moreover, in industrial practice, these systems are typically developed concurrently by different ... View full abstract»

    Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are critical assets to public utility and manufacturing organizations. These systems, although critical, are prone to numerous cyber security related threats and attacks. To combat such challenges, we propose a Dynamic Generated Containment System (DGCS), a moving target defense model as a method of threat evasion. Under the proposed approac... View full abstract»

    A collaborative embedded systems (CES) is an intelligent agent in a cyber-physical system which cooperates with others by negotiation to fulfill a common task. In this paper, we consider autonomous transport robots as CES. These robots are used in production environments like factories and storage halls to realize the flow of materials within the production process. We describe the software hierar...

    For many cyber-physical systems, there is a strong trend towards open systems, which can be extended during operation by instantly adding functionalities on demand. We discuss this trend in the context of automotive and medical systems. The goal of this paper is to elaborate the research challenges of new platforms for such open systems. A main problem is that such CPS apps shall be able to access... View full abstract»

    The rise of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) brings a new level of complexity into the world of software and systems development and operations. Dynamic dependencies and changes throughout the product lifecycle necessarily impact system performance. At the same time, these new, highly automated systems require exceptional reliability and usability. From a software vendor's view, experiences with enter... View full abstract»

    In the engineering of cyber-physical systems the engineering process typically focuses on single systems and not on the entire system network. Within the system network the different specification artifacts (in consequence also the implemented systems) for the various cyber-physical systems evolve independently even though they highly interact with each other. As a result, inconsistencies between ... View full abstract»

    New connected infotainment features and advanced driver assistance systems pose considerable challenges for the software architectures of future vehicles. As a result of the growing complexity, there are emerging needs from both suppliers and integrators for improved reuse and reconfiguration at design time. Furthermore, there is also increasing pressure from customers for an improved driving expe... View full abstract»

    The use of cyber-physical systems (CPS) for different tasks and in multiple environments where different laws and standards need to be adhered to often leads to development of multiple product variants. In the domain of embedded systems, product line engineering (PLE) is an established approach to manage variability that can be used to efficiently develop and maintain those variants. At the same t... View full abstract»

    The need for maintenance is based on the wear of components of machinery. If this need can be defined reliably beforehand so that no unpredicted failures take place then the maintenance actions can be carried out economically with minimum disturbance to production. There are two basic challenges in solving the above. First understanding the development of wear and failures, and second managing the... View full abstract»
