DCPS - Dependable Cyber Physical Systems

Welcome to the pages of the scientific network "Dependable Cyber Physical Systems" (DCPS).

DCPS is a funded project of the DAAD-Program „Strategic Partnerships and Thematic Networks“ (2013-2016).

Contact person in Liberec is Zdenek Plíva

What are CPS?

Cyber Physical Systems are large systems and netwoks located in the „real world“ which work under the control of multiple computer-based sub-systems.


  • electric power grids
  • air-traffic control
  • rail-traffic control
  • street street/highway traffic management  
  • wireless sensor networks, e.g. for environmental control

In all these applications, computers, which work without a notion of real time „cyber space“ are used to monitor and control other systems with strong requirements to guarantee a certain function within strict time limits.

This project DCPS is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), financed by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).
