Cyber-Physical Systems Testbed Workshop

Dedicated Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) testbeds are being developed by industry, academia, and government laboratories to characterize CPS equipment, systems, performance, and standards. At this nascent stage, a shared understanding of needs, opportunities, and approaches of the CPS community will help achieve the full potential of CPS.

On February 24-25, 2015, NIST will host a workshop to discover areas of need within CPS research characteristics of a facility designed to meet those needs. This workshop will enable the CPS community to share perspectives, best practices, and challenges in support of this goal. Using a Design Thinker methodology, participants will engage in efforts designed to:

  • Highlight the present state of CPS research facilities;
  • Gain insights into the contributing factors for the current state;
  • Identify opportunities to make a substantial impact on the community and move CPS research forward;
  • Pinpoint specific elements to effectively address an opportunity.
Participants will actively contribute to workshop outcomes and help guide the community's efforts to develop a successful CPS testbed architecture.
