Platforms for Cyber-Physical System Design

Model-based design is a powerful design technique for cyber-physical systems, though often ill-defined. In each step in a model-based design methodology, gaps exist in tools and processes used today. Poorly glued together design tools ("frankenware") result in failed designs and underscore the need for innovation in platforms for the design of cyber-physical systems.

Speaker Bio:
Jeff C. Jensen is an embedded systems engineer and manager of the Embedded Lead User Program at National Instruments. He is responsible for the development, diffusion, and adoption of innovations in embedded and cyber-physical systems. Following the "lead user" process of innovation, he identifies and collaborates with market-leading users, researchers, and innovators to identify emerging needs. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley, where he was a researcher at the Center for Hybrid and Embedded Software Systems (CHESS). Research interests include model-based design, models of computation, and cyber-physical systems.
