Cyber--physical systems (CPS) have become increasingly prevalent in applications including health care, energy, and transportation. The tight coupling between cyber and physical components of CPS implies that cyber--attacks can degrade the safety, availability, and performance of physical components. The cyber components also introduce multiple entry points to the CPS, lowering the cost of attacks compared to purely physical systems.
Transportation sectors are today faced with grand societal challenges of accommodating an unprecedented traffic increase, while improving travel safety, comfort and convenience, fuel efficiency, environmental benefit, and stakeholders business. Commonalities are emerging in the way aerospace and automotive sectors are responding to these grand challenges.
