Schnell & automatisch reagieren: Neue Techniken für cyber-physische Systeme

Die Informatik kann Lösungen für gegebene Probleme errechnen. Ändert sich das Problem jedoch stetig, wie im Fall eines Verkehrssystems, haben es die so genannten flexiblen cyber-physischen Systeme schwer, stets optimale Lösungen vorzuschlagen. In einem von der FFG geförderten Projekt versucht man nun mit Methoden der Wissensverarbeitung, neue Ansätze zu entwickeln, die ein automatisiertes und schnelles […]
