Visible to the public Taxonomy - Dependability of CPS

About 30 years ago, Lapri has defined dependability as a logical framework over multiple quantitative properties, such as availability, reliability, integrity, etc. Since then it has been successfully used for characterizing dependability of computational systems. The latest update of concepts and taxonomy of dependable and secure computing was released in 2004 (see link below):

Visible to the public Networked Control System Wind Tunnel (NCSWT)- An evaluation tool for networked multi-agent systems

Cyber-physical systems, such groups of unmanned aerial vehicles, are often monitored and controlled by networked control systems (NCS). NCS are deployed in many environments subject to realistic, complex network interactions, so evaluation of NCS is crucial to ensuring that NCS function as intended. Given the varied nature of NCS, it is appropriate to use a heterogenous simulation environment to capture the dynamics; however, the design and integration of heterogeneous simulation environments is a complex problem.

Visible to the public Distributed Sampling Rate Adaptation for Networked Control Systems

Authors: Jia Bai, Emeka P. Eyisi, Yuan Xue and Xenofon D. Koutsoukos Appeared in: The First International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Networking Systems (CPNS) in conjunction with INFOCOM, Shanghai, China, April 15 2011, pp. 6. Abstract: Building networked control systems is a promising direction that promotes the evolution of the traditional control systems. The ability of using different sampling rates in control systems provides the flexibility for adapting their resource needs based on the dynamic networking environment.

Visible to the public A Backstepping Control Framework for m-Triangular Systems

(Under review in IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology: “A Backstepping Control Framework for Networked Control of m-Triangular Systems”) m-Triangular Systems are dynamical physical systems which can be described by m triangular subsystem models. Many physical system models such as those which describe fixed-wing and quadrotor aircraft can be realized as m-Triangular Systems. However, many control engineers try to fit their dynamical model into a 1-Triangular System model.
