CPSwarm at the Cross-Disciplinary Approaches for Building Intelligent Swarms of Drones workshop

On Tuesday, November 14, Melanie Schranz from Lakeside Labs will give a presentation at the Cross-Disciplinary Approaches for Building Intelligent Swarms of Drones workshop  in Toulouse. Her talk will highlight the CPSwarm project’s work on system integration and tools to support the engineering of CPS swarms.

 

Presentation Title: CPSwarm: A Horizon 2020 Project on System Integration and Tools to Support Engineering of CPS Swarms

Presenter: Melanie Schranz, Lakeside Labs GmbH, Klagenfurt, Austria

Abstract: Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) find applications in a number of large-scale, safety-critical domains e.g. transportation, smart cities, etc. While the increased CPS adoption has resulted in the maturation of solutions for CPS development, a single consistent science of system integration for CPS has not yet been consolidated. Therefore CPS development remains a complex and error-prone task, often requiring a collection of separate tools. Moreover, interactions amongst CPS might lead to new behaviors and emerging properties, often with unpredictable results. Rather than being an unwanted byproduct, these interactions can become an advantage if explicitly managed at early design stages.

CPSwarm tackles this challenge by proposing a new science of system integration and tools to support engineering of CPS swarms. CPSwarm tools will ease development and integration of complex herds of heterogeneous CPS that collaborate based on local policies and that exhibit a collective behavior capable of solving complex, industrial-driven, real-world problems.

The project defines a complete toolchain that enables the designer to:

  • Set-up collaborative autonomous CPSs
  • Test the swarm performance with respect to the design goal
  • Massively deploy solutions towards “reconfigurable” CPS devices
