Track 4: Cyber-Physical Systems in Manufacturing

In recent years, research and applications of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) have been active in such areas like transportation, smart home, robotic surgery, aviation, defense, critical infrastructure, etc. CPS also positively affected manufacturing in form of Cyber-Physical Production Systems in process automation and control. On the other hand, advancements in Web-/Internet-/Cloud-based systems and applications have opened up the possibility for industries to utilize the cyber workspace to conduct efficient and effective daily collaborations from anywhere in distributed manufacturing environments. Papers addressing advancement and future potentials of CPS in manufacturing are especially welcome to be submitted to this track. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

  • ·         Cyber security
  • ·         Remote monitoring and control in cyber workspace
  • ·         Cloud-enabled CPS in production planning, control and execution
  • ·         Real-time sensing, diagnosis and prognosis for distant maintenance
  • ·         Industrial applications of CPS in manufacturing environment
