Cross-Layer Design of Distributed Cyber-Physical Systems: From Physical Models to Semiconductor Reliability

In this talk we will focus our attention to embedded control systems as
one possible incarnation of cyber-physical systems. Their design starts
with high-level control algorithm design and ends with a concrete
hardware/software implementation, involving independent design teams who
work at different levels of abstraction – control theorists, compiler
designers, programmers, embedded systems designers, computer architects,
and semiconductor experts. As a result, design assumptions made at one
layer often do not hold at other layers, thereby requiring costly, often
ad hoc, ex post facto integration, testing and debugging. While this is
a well-recognized problem, till date there is no satisfactory solution
that integrates all the abstraction layers. We will outline the
challenges involved here and discuss potential solutions.
