Abstract: Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are interconnected systems of sensors and computing systems that sense and collect information about the physical world, and in turn operate on this sensed information to interact with and influence the physical world. Application domains of CPS include healthcare, agriculture, transportation, and aerospace. As we continue to entrust more parts of our lives to CPS, it is imperative that the underlying hardware and software computing systems on which these CPS rely on are designed correctly for safe operation. In safety-critical CPS domains, producing correct values (logical correctness) and the time it takes to produce the correct values (timing predictability) constitute as correct design. This notion of time as a first-class design principle for computing system design introduces challenges to conventional design processes and methodologies.

In this talk, I will discuss my research in designing timing-predictable and high-performance hardware computing systems for safety-critical CPS. Specifically, I will highlight the challenges and my research contributions towards facilitating timing-predictable coherent shared data communication in multi-core compute systems. I will discuss my future research vision on developing efficient compute systems for CPS, which will be crucial to sustaining the tremendous potential benefits that CPS offer and accelerating their deployment and outreach in our lives and society at large.
