We have entered the era of Cyberphysical Systems (CPS), i.e., very large networks in which collaborating intelligent agents possessing sensing, communication and computation capabilities are interconnected for controlling physical systems via complex real-time operations. The design of such systems imposes many challenges, most notably: a) decentralized coordination, b) efficient resource allocation and c)mining information from big data generated by thousands, possibly millions of nodes.

In this talk, I will present implications of CPS design to Smarter Transportation Systems, namely: a) Distributed algorithms for collaborative localization and clock synchronization, b) Software-defined architecture for Transportation, and c) data mining from inexact big data., 510-642-3585
