über das Thema:

The Impact of Cyber-Physical Systems on the Automotive Industry

Zeit: Wed 21.10.2009, 16:15, 60 Minuten
Ort: Universit├Ąt Salzburg, Bibliotheksaula, Hofstallgasse 2


New automotive product development relies heavily on the disciplines of control, electronics, communication, and real-time software. To justify this claim, this talk provides on overview of emerging and exemplary product features and enhancements. Naturally attendant with the increased functionality is increased development complexity. This development complexity needs to be mitigated and model-based development techniques intended to provide this mitigation are also presented. Finally, open systems research needs motivated by cyber-physical systems development are presented.


Ken Butts is executive engineer, Powertrain and Chassis Division, Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In this position, he is investigating methods to improve engine control development productivity. Dr. Butts has a BE degree in electrical engineering from General Motors Institute (now Kettering University), a MS in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois, and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering systems from the University of Michigan.
