Title: Cyber Physical Systems: A New Science for Convergence

Abstract:
Recently, the convergence of cyber and physical spaces has transformed
traditional embedded systems into cyber physical systems (CPS), which
are characterized by tight integration and coordination among
computation and physical processes by networking. In CPS, various
embedded devices with computational components are networked to
monitor, sense, and actuate physical elements in the real world.
Examples of CPS encompass a wide range of man-made systems such as
avionics, healthcare, transportation, automation, and smart grid
systems. In addition, the recent proliferation of smart phones and
mobile Internet devices equipped with multiple sensors can be
leveraged to enable mobile cyber-physical applications. In this
tutorial, we provide an overview of CPS by summarizing recent research
efforts and future opportunities for CPS.
