Lab of Cyber-Physical Systems
Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering

Cyberphysical Systems Laboratory

The lab focuses on software aspects of cyberphysical systems operation and development. In particular: 

- Software development: development approaches and tools able to support CPS development. In particular, it focuses on the applicability of Agile approaches and open source use to reduce the costs and the time-to-market. Moreover, it investigates the impact of such approaches on certification requirements. 

- Software quality: evolution analysis of software systems quality considering the maintenance requirements of CPS. Moreover, testing large systems is an important aspect that is considered from many points of view. 

- Data collection and analysis: with development of new connected devices the number of data sources is increasing dramatically. Identifying and managing useful information to create business value is a new challenge that is relevant in many application domains (e.g., prevent failures, schedule ad-hoc maintenance, usage monitoring, etc.) 

Laboratory Objectives

- Internationally excel in the research on the software and physical aspects of cyberphysical systems 

- Improve (reduce costs, shorten development time, increase quality, etc.) the development of CPS through:performing quantitative analysis of how software is produced, maintained, and operated; developing novel approaches to support software development; develop support tools; data analysis and prediction; modeling and simulation) 

- Train the new generation of researchers exposing them to both empirical and theoretical challenges

-Train the new generation of professionals able to address the evolving IT challenges providing them a strong theoretical and practical background
