Design and Verification of Cyber-Physical Systems

This website is obsolete. Please visit our new website for up-to-date information about all classes at the Chair of Operating Systems.
New time and place: Lecture is 13:00 - 14:30 in APB 3080.


Cyber-physical systems are physical and engineered systems monitored, coordinated and controlled by networked computational resources. Often, cyber-physical systems such as autonomous cars, surgical robots and trains operate with or in close proximity to humans; thus, safety is key.

In this lecture, we give an introduction into the major topics that are for constructing and assuring correct behavior of cyber-physical systems. We allude to mathematical models of physical systems, feedback control, real-time operating systems, program verification and the essentials for verifying hybrid systems. Our goal is to establish a first mutual understanding and communication skill between researchers in the above fields.
