"Embedded Systems as Foundations of Cyber-Physical Systems"

by senior researcher Bernadetta Kwintiana Ane
Institute of Computer-Aided Product Development Systems, University of Stuttgart, Germany

Robots, intelligent buildings, implantable medical devices, cars that drive themselves or planes that automatically fly in a controlled airspace are examples of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Today, CPS can be found in such diverse industries as aerospace, automotive, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, infrastructure, consumer electronics, and communications. Everyday life is becoming increasingly dependent on these systems, in some cases with dramatic improvements. CPS can be described as smart systems that encompass computational (i.e., hardware and software) and physical components, seamlessly integrated and closely interacting to sense the changing state of the real world. These systems involve a high degree of complexity at numerous spatial and temporal scales and highly networked communications integrating computational and physical components. In fact, CPS is about the intersection, not the union, of the physical and the cyber. In CPS, embedded computers and networks monitor and control the physical processes, usually with feedback loops where physical processes affect computations and vice versa. The design of such systems requires understanding the joint dynamics of computers, software, networks, and physical processes. Therefore, it is not sufficient to separately understand the physical components and the computational components. We must instead understand their interaction.

Welcome to the Latvia Section for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the worldwide largest technical professional society.


The IEEE Latvia Section is part of Region 8 and covers the area of the Republic of Latvia.The first talks about foundation of IEEE Latvia Section started in 2004, when IEEE Lithuania Section Officers visiting Riga Technical University. Finally, in 2007, during the meeting of European Nordic and Baltic countries IEEE Section officers, which was held in Riga, IEEE members from Latvia formed petition for the creation of Latvia Section. IEEE Latvia Section was founded February 16, 2008, with the first elected Chair Professor Leonids Ribickis. Since its creation, the Latvia Section has been working professionally in various activities, mainly within the city of Riga.

As of 1 January 2016, the IEEE Latvia Section has a total of 129 active members: Life Member - 2, Senior Member - 7, Member - 82, Associate Member - 2, Graduate Student Member - 24, Student Member - 10.

Honorary Chair: Leonīds Ribickis,

Chair: Andrejs Romānovs,

Vice Chair: Pēteris Apse-Apsītis

Secretary: Anastasija Žiravecka

Treasurer: Nadežda Kuņicina
