Cyber-Physical Networks

Become knowledgeable about the main challenges, principles, solutions, and applications of communication networks for cyber-physical systems.

In this course, you will learn about the future evolution of communication networks towards so-called machine-type applications, also referred to as cyber-physical systems. You will be equipped with the basics to design, implement and dimension such networks according to application needs. Most of this knowledge represents the underlying principles driving the most current evolution of information networking. This evolution necessitates the reconsideration and redesign of major parts of communication networks to make them suitable for modern applications like robot and drone coordination, control of automation machinery or also augmented reality applications.

The course provides an overview of the underlying principles of this future evolution towards cyber-physical networks, while also discussing open research problems and societal implications of such networks.

  • Be able to identify and explain the requirements of control applications and cyber-physical systems (CPS) with respect to networking solutions.
  • Be able to match design principles of cyber-physical networks to different application requirements.
  • Understand and explain the consequences of massive and/or critical wireless networking for the higher layers of communication systems
  • Be able to identify major open research challenges in the context of cyber-physical networks and their implications in meeting societal challenges
