There are many emerging networked infrastructures like smart power grid, transportation systems, advanced air traffic control/air space management systems, health care systems, Such Oil and gas production systems, large plant wide control & optimization extending up to enterprise management etc., These systems are integrated to maximize the performance of the overall system or system of systems in spite of their size, nature, and inherent not very precisely defined dynamic systems. These systems are expected to work with graceful degradation in spite of multiple critical failures or imperfections; and even with possible intended/unintended faults. Most of the larger embedded systems integrate safety critical and non-safety critical real time functions on one platform. Effectiveness and efficiency of such “mixed critical” systems is a highly relevant practical problem. Mixed criticality affects hardware and software architectures, scheduling and arbitration as well as the design process. Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) integrate computing & communication systems, physical systems and human factors in a single framework. The processes involved in the systems may be continuous, discrete (even, multi rate), sparse, event driven (fully ordered or partially ordered), serendipitous… We need to tackle sub systems or components or processes that involve dynamics at drastically different temporal and spatial scales. The strict nature of control (time triggered and/or event triggered, centralized/distributed/decentralized/hierarchical/reconfigurable/goal oriented) in the presence of ubiquitous uncertainty that must be implemented drives us to consider control also during co-design process. This talk describes this emerging multi-disciplinary areas, challenges, and relevance to control systems domain.
