As we reported earlier in the scope of CPS/IoT Ecosystem project we started a lecture on Autonomous Racing Cars within F1tenth international program. The lecture was organized in cooperation with University of Pennsylvania (UPENN). We successfully assembled a fleet of racing cars and finalized a first inaugural lecture in summer semester of 2020. TUfast TUfurious is a team made from the selected subtends in the course. They were working hard to create a competition ready algorithm and participate in their first international race at IFAC World Congress, Berlin, Germany. We are proud to announce that our team won the first prize by successfully defeating all other teams in the had to head competition. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMzm2oCc_4w Team members: Thomas Pintaric (Captain), Mathias Lechner (IST Austria), Bernhard Schlögl, Axel Brunnbauer, und Andreas Brandstätter.…
We are proud to present a novel approach to lectures at TU Wien with the new lecture Autonomous Racing Cars. It is an exciting multi-discipline lecture with the aim to show full variation of computer engineering, with computer science, robotics and control theory. The lecture is supported by the CPS/IoT Ecosystem and will be part of smart mobility track of the infrastructure. These platforms are part of various other research initiatives and projects. Teams will build and program their cars from scratch and then compete each other. Most successful teams will be considered for participation at international http://f1tenth competitions.

Isakovic Haris , Alexander Fasching , Lukas Punzenberger, Radu Grosu Building large-scale IoT applications requires enormous infrastructural support. As infrastructure we understand hardware, software and communication channels necessary to ensure interconnection between various heterogeneous components. Project CPS/IoT Ecosystems explores infrastructural requirements for large-scale applications. The applications are realworld scenarios such as smart parking, smart agriculture or smart buildings. In this paper we explore infrastructural requirements necessary to build modular indoor vertical farming system. The proposed prototype is a service-oriented platform distributed over three scopes of operation: cloud, fog, sensor/actuator.

Isakovic Haris, Vanja Bisanovic, Bernhard Wally, Thomas Rausch, Denise Ratasich, Schahram Dustdar, Gerti Kappel, Radu Grosu IoT systems are more and more becoming part of civil and industrial infrastructure. With the growth of these IoT ecosystems, their complexity is increasing exponentially. This paper reflects on issues with respect to scalability in these systems. A simulation framework is proposed, that is capable of generating big data, to evaluate scalability of IoT infrastructures and correspondent applications. It is a cloud based Infrastructure as-a-Service (IaaS) system that enables users to test both functionality and scalability of their IoT applications. IEEE/IES IECON 2019, September 2019, Lisbon. PT
Thomas Rausch, Philipp Raith, Padmanabhan Pillai, Scharam Dustar This work was presented at the 4th ACM/IEEE Symposium on Edge Computing and was awarded with best demo award. Congrats to the team led by Thomas Rausch. We present an end-to-end system for operating energy-aware cloudlets with a low-footprint cluster manager and an adaptive client-side load balancing approach. Our system is designed for small-scale high-density compute clusters that host stateless services and have stringent energy resource constraints. It features cluster and service management, runtime monitoring, adaptive load balancing and cluster reconfiguration policies. Furthermore, we present an experimentation and analytics system that allows coordinated execution of complex workload experiments to evaluate different operational strategies.

Radu Grosu, Schahram Dusdtar, Gerti Kappel, Tom Henzinger, Manfred Gruber, Hermann Kopetz Looking back at the time Bill Gates was one of his brilliant students, Christos Papadimitriou a Harvard professor and world-renowned computer scientist, concluded that one of the greatest challenges of the academic community is to recognizing when an IT revolution is on its way. He did not see the PC revolution coming, but his student did. Since then several others happened, such as the Internet and the Mobiles revolutions. Another imminent one is in the making: The CPS/IoT revolution. The worldwide academic institutions and especially the Austrian ones have a responsibility to ask the following important questions: Are we prepared for the CPS/IoT revolution? Do we have the proper infrastructure, software tools and courses? The answer is unfortunately…
Laura Flandorfer, a student at the computer engineering branch of the Hertha Firnberg Schools in Vienna, got to know research and science as part of her internship sponsored by the FFG. At the Cyber-Physical Systems Research Division she developed a pick & place machine to equip circuit boards with electronic components. For this she had to design 3D printed parts, assemble the electronics an program the machine. The interview is also featured on the faculty's website.
We are proud to announce that this years Euromicro DSD SEAA will be organized at Technische Universität Wien in cooperation of Cyber-Physical Systems Group, Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) and Österreichische Computer Gesellschaft (OCG). Euromicro DSD SEAA 2017 will take place between August 30th and September 1st at TU Campus Gußhaus, 1040 Wien, Gußhausstraße 25-29. The Euromicro Conference series on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) and on Digital System Design (DSD) are a long-standing international forum for researchers, practitioners from business and industry, and students to present and discuss the latest innovations, trends, experiences, and concerns Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) in information technology for software-intensive systems and Digital System Design (DSD) covering all aspects of (embedded, pervasive and high-performance) digital and mixed hardware/software system engineering, down to…
The CPS/IoT Ecosystem project offers numerous opportunities for students to finish their bachelor or master thesis within the project. We are happy to invite students from diverse fields of science to participate in this project through thesis activities or internship . This is a unique chance to work with renown scientific and industrial groups from Austria. The topics vary from cutting edge scientific theoretical research to the practical hands-on work on state-of-the-art IoT and CPS technology. Contact us for further information or visit our office at Treitlestrasse 1-3., 3. Floor.
On 20.03.2017 a first general assembly meeting was held at TU Wien. The goal of the meeting was define framework for the administration and technical execution of the project. The meeting resulted in an organizational structure of the project and a number of use cases that will be considered in the project. The official start for the project was set for the 01.06.2017.
