CISTER researchers Ricardo Severino and Eduardo Tovar participated in the kick-off meeting of this recently approved ECSEL project. SafeCOP addresses safety-related cooperating cyber-physical systems, characterized by use of wireless communication, multiple stakeholders, dynamic system definitions and unpredictable operating environments.
CISTER is leading the work package related to safe and secure wireless cooperation for Cyber-Physical Systems. This package will evaluate the adequacy of COTS and standard wireless technologies, and extend current wireless protocols for safe and secure cooperation. In this project, CISTER will also be involved in a vehicle platooning use case. SafeCOP partners include Thales, SINTEF, KTH, SICS and and key national industrial players such as GMV Skysoft and Tekever.
