Brief Description of Focus Area:
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon, the seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components, that is, bridging the cyber world and the physical world. Advances in CPS will enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability that will far exceed the simple embedded systems of today. CPS technology will transform the way people interact with engineered systems, just as the Internet has transformed the way people interact with information; systems in which computing devices both send information to the larger systems in which they are integrated and receive information from the immediate environment that guide computers’ reactions in response to varying external conditions. Such advances are made possible by intricate networks of interacting computing components embedded in the control systems of automobiles, aircraft, electric power grids, medical devices and more.
