Abstract

The recent spectacular progress in the microelectronic, information, communication, material and sensor technologies created a big stimulus towards development of much more sophisticated, coherent and fit to use, smart communicating cyber-physical systems (CPS). The huge and rapidly developing markets of the modern CPS represent great opportunities for both private enterprises and country economies. However, these opportunities come with a price of unusual systems complexity, as well as, stringent and difficult to satisfy requirements of the modern CPS applications. Specifically, numerous mobile and autonomous CPS applications require a. o. a guaranteed (ultra-)high performance or (ultra-)low energy consumption, as well as, a high reliability, safety and security. To adequately address these problems and overcome the related challenges a sophisticated embedded computing and embedded design technologies are needed. After a brief introduction to modern CPS and consideration of several serious challenges of their design, this paper discusses the embedded computing technology needed for the modern complex and highly-demanding mobile and autonomous CPS.
