The project is an on-going collaborative effort between Massachusetts Institute of Technology and University of Pennsylvania since 2011.
This research is focused on the co-design of platform and control of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Limited and shared resources among several control and non-control applications in CPS introduce delays in transmitted messages, which in turn can degrade system performance or even cause instabilities. While a worst-case delay based design can accommodate such delays, they often are pessimistic and lead to an overdesign as worst case delays happen infrequently.
Integration of various sub-systems has been one of the most time consuming and costly endeavor in the automotive domain. For example, in automotive industry the vehicle control system rely on system components manufactured by different vendors with their own software and hardware. What is needed is a new system science that enables the reliable and cost effective integration of independently developed system components.
