Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems
Industrial cyber physical systems (ICPS) are real world networked industrial systems, having a cyber-representation through digitalisation of data and information across enterprise and value chain. This module aims to address what cyber physical systems are, their potential benefits and application in the industrial domain. Recent advances in modelling and simulation tools, computation power, machine learning, communication, storage and cloud services has a potential to give rise to ICPS.
The module has two parts. The introductory part where the students will be taught about the theoretical framework and the supporting technologies, the digitalisation of the industry. The second part focuses on system design and implementation aspects. The second part also introduces the cyber-physical design where cyber entities created in the first part of the course are connected to physical systems.
Principal Learning Outcomes
After the course students will be able to:
• Describe the vision and the main challenges related to the industrial cyber physical systems.
• Know the differences between a cyber-physical system conventional manufacturing systems.
• Analyse the requirements on the computational and physical infrastructures required to support such a system.
• Use the basic technologies for supporting ICPS.
• Use intelligent methods to design cyber-physical system.
