TUM Department Electrical and Computer Engineering:
CoC Embedded and Cyber-physical Systems
Center of Competence Embedded and Cyber-physical Systems


This CoC supports TUM researchers in multidisciplinary research, new teaching initiatives, large research projects, and advance the state-of-the-art for embedded and cyber-physical systems (CPS).

This CoC also addresses key societal challenges in healthcare, transportation systems, energy and environment.

It will bridge activities between TUM, industry, other universities and research institutes.


CoC is able to mix-and-match the individual competences of the CoC members in leading edge scientific research and their multi-year experience in industry cooperation.

This combination is addressing the technological challenges and problems arising in the space of embedded and cyber-physical systems, but also identifying new directions for interdisciplinary scientific research. Broadly, the competence areas include:

  • Application-specific multi-core processor and reconfigurable computing architectures
  • Model-based design and synthesis of hardware and software platform
  • Co-design of control, computation and communication under resource constraints
  • Methods for ensuring real-time performance, security, reliability and energy-efficiency
  • CMOS and nanotechnology-based sensors and devices, autonomous sensor networks and sensor-based systems

CoC has competences inautomotive systems and software, medical devices including sensor networks for health monitoring, real-time and embedded multimedia systems, home and building automation systems, and high-performance embedded control systems.
