Cyber-physical systems (CPS) link cyberspace with the physical world through a network of interrelated elements, such as sensors and actuators, robotics, and computational engines. These systems are highly automated, intelligent, and collaborative. CPS examples include energy neutral buildings, zero-fatality highways, and personalized medical devices.
Designing cyber-physical systems is challenging because:
Using multidomain models that capture such variability is critical to successful CPS design.
You can model the information domain of cyber-physical systems with MATLAB®, Simulink®, and related products (such as those for computer vision and communications). In addition, you can model the physics behavior with Simscape™ and the performance behavior with SimEvents™.These products enable system-level design studies that span multiple domains and levels of fidelity.
Examples of MATLAB and Simulink support for cyber-physical systems design include:
