    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge

    The aim of the course is to introduce the Cyber Physical Systems and its design issues. The students can learn about the major European CPS platforms. The complete design flow is covered through several case studies and different sensing and actuating problems. The main sensor types and their key parameters, the issues of the signal digitalization, the signal processing and power supply considerations are described in detail. Different problem solving techniques are used to make the student confident with CPS design issues.

    8. Synopsis

    The course introduces the Cyber Physical Systems, where the sensing and actuating sub-systems involve communication layers. The first few weeks are for learning the top-down system level designing for CPSs then the module, sub-module and component level is described in detail. The course deals with the identification of the requirements and problems in conjunction with the different system realizations. The coupling of different analog and digital signals and the power supply needs of the systems are also covered.

    The second part of the semester deals with sensors used in CPSs: a great number of active and passive sensors are described in the means of electrical and physical performance, and also their applicability for certain tasks. The readout circuitries of passive sensors have a dedicated full lecture: system design and component calculation tasks are carried out furthermore the problems of the signal conditioning and transmission are highlighted. The sub-systems that incorporate MEMS (Microeletromechanical System) are very important in the modern CPSs, so the introduction and the application capabilities of such devices also have high priority during the semester.

    The third part of the course deals with the system integration, joining the analog and digital sub-modules to a complete CPS. Key parameters that affect the integration are introduced and described in detail.

    The semester ends with four case studies: application specific platform selection and CPS design for different purposes. The students can see the diverse application range of CPSs: starting with high computational demand purely digital systems, ending with multiple analog signal managing systems.
