RADIO organizes a workshop entitled "Trends and challenges of Cyber Physical Systems: Design, Architectures and Applications" @ ICT 2016 Conference

Trends and challenges of Cyber Physical Systems: Design, Architectures and Applications
[Full day workshop with a combination of invited talks and demonstrators from both industry and academia, jointly supported by RADIO, ARGO, and RAMCIP EU H2020 funded projects]

The term Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) is used to describe software-intensive embedded systems that are connected to services available around the world through global networks such as the Internet, as parts of devices, buildings, vehicles, routers, production plants, logistics and management processes etc. that use sensors and actuators to gather multimodal physical data and to directly affect physical processes. This includes the real-time connectivity to digital networks (wireless, wired, local, global) using globally available data and services. Such systems can be found in all smart mobility domains like automotive, avionics, and railway. Moreover Cyber Physical Systems will be the basis for smart mobility comprising the characteristics inter-modality, efficiency, safety, mixed criticality and the like. CPS effectively comprise a multidisciplinary research domain attracting active interest from heterogeneous areas including embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, VLSI and computer architecture.

The purpose of this workshop is to evaluate strategies for future CPS system architecture design, design tools and methods and applications. Furthermore, it will provide the opportunity for researchers coming from different technological, research and business background to discuss, exchange opinions and views on critical yet diverse challenges paving the way from advancements in areas such as: wireless sensor communication protocols, low energy communication techniques, low power miniaturized embedded systems, hardware accelerators, audio/image/video signal processing, processing units architectures, end-to-end communication infrastructure, smart home communication protocols, services and adequate application scenarios.
