Researchers Deliver Open-Source Simulator for Cyberphysical Systems


Aspects of cyberphysical systems.

Researchers working on the European Union-funded COSSIM project have released an open source framework which seamlessly simulates, in an integrated way, both the networking and the processing parts of cyberphysical systems, as well as cloud and high-performance computing systems.

Researchers working on the European Union (EU)-funded COSSIM (A Novel, Comprehensible, Ultra-Fast, Security-Aware CPS Simulator) project have created a software framework to help developers better design integrated mechanisms of computation, networking, and physical processes.

The open-source framework seamlessly simulates the networking and processing parts of cyberphysical systems (CPS), as well as cloud and high-performance computing (HPC) systems.

Danilo Pau, senior member of the technical staff at STMicroelectronics and one of the partners in COSSIM, says the Internet of Things market needs artificial intelligence functionalities to leverage its growth potential. A powerful CPS and cloud simulator can help system designers simulate much more effectively than with traditional methodologies, says Pau.

The COSSIM simulator will enable the open source framework to carry out simulations orders of magnitude faster.

COSSIM will simulate two real-world applications from different domains to demonstrate all CPS features in highly demanding commercial environments, the researchers say.
