  • Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are next-generation engineered systems that involve the interaction of computers, networks, sensors, and actuators, and are attracting much attention from academia, industry, and governments. One important focus within CPSs is networked control systems, where it is critically important to address the stability and performance of the control loop, focusing on the interaction between the physical system and the controllers over a communication network. An another focus is on real-time computing and networking, where it is important to deal with the timing constraints of physical systems and ensure temporal correctness of the interactions with both computing systems and the communication network. One of the biggest challenges to implementation of CPSs is their complexity, which makes it much more difficult to design and develop software systems.
