[12-11] Seminar on Monday: Dependable Internet of Things
Washington University in St. Louis
IoT-driven control underpins many IoT applications in industries and smart cities. In contrast to best-effort IoT often found in consumer markets, there remain daunting challenges to develop IoT systems that not only monitor but also control physical systems in a dependable fashion. We will highlight the dependability challenges caused by communication delays, data loss and resource constraints of IoT. We will further discuss cyber-physical co-design as a fundamental approach to achieve dependable control based on IoT.
