Speech Title : Automatic Control through Cyber-Physical System


Abstract This talk is to draw the attention that our way of life will dominate by the Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Firstly, a smart object which is an important building block of the internet of things environment is introduced. The smart object provides the properties that it can be identified, monitored and controlled in internet and communication network. The kind of control system that based on this smart object in the internet of things (IoT) environment can be referred as a Cyber-Physical System (CPS). The CPS will be an important control system in the era of digital technology. In the second part, the definition, the usefulness, the applications and the impact of the CPS system will be outlined. Typically, the CPS system is the integration of a physical and engineered system, which is a continuous-time processing system, with a computation (or cyber system) that is a discrete-time processing system. With the communication and data core, the cyber operation process is monitored, coordinated and controlled. In smart manufacturing, cyber twin technology has been developed to improve the production efficiency and accuracy. The concept and application of cyber twin which is the digital simulation of physical product will be explained.
