Cyber-Physical Systems & Sensing

Cyber-physical systems are advanced networked embedded systems that tightly integrate computing, communication and physical systems. Research on cyber-physical systems crosscuts real-time systems, wireless sensor networks, embedded systems and smart sensors. Cyber-physical systems technology will drive a wide range of new applications such as autonomous vehicles, smart civil infrastructure, medical devices and smart energy.




Professor Chenyang Lu is developing a wireless clinical monitoring system, where wireless sensors continuously monitor patients’ vital signs, even as they move around in general hospital wards.
