Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Discrete dynamics: modeling (Moore/Mealy machine, Petri nets, satecharts), solution traces, temporal logic, introduction to model checking, controller synthesis;
Hybrid dynamics: modeling (timed automata, hybrid automata, hybrid statecharts), simulation of hybrid dynamics, stability analysis, introduction to reachability analysis, supervisory control;
Networks of cyber-physical systems; typical hardware (sensors, actuators, computing hardware)
After the end of the module students are able to model cyber-physical systems and have a deep understanding of the interplay between continuous dynamics arising from physical entities (e.g. mechanical systems) and discrete dynamics originating from computing elements (e.g. discrete event control), leading to so-called hybrid dynamics. Students will be capable of designing, analyzing, and controlling cyber-physical systems on a basic level. They can extract the relevant dynamical aspects of cyber-physical systems, discuss with experts on those and develop solutions on their own that meet given specifications.
