Welcome to PRECISE!
PRECISE (Penn Research In Embedded Computing and Integrated Systems) was established in 2008 to bring together experts from the electrical systems engineering and computer science fields to study the way machines interact with the physical world through their computing systems, aka Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).
CPS feature computational components controlling large, complex physical plants in a tightly coupled fashion, often featuring time-critical, safety-critical, networked and/or embedded control.
Our research involves finding fundamental and practical solutions to problems of modeling, control, simulation, operation, formal design, and implementation of CPS. Such next generation systems are central to energy-efficient buildings and smart cities, industrial automation, advanced manufacturing, autonomous vehicles, and medical devices. Thus, CPS work has a direct, powerful impact on healthcare, energy, and transportation - all essential and important facets of modern society.
Our one-of-a-kind Master’s in Embedded Systems (EMBS) graduate program (offer through the CIS Department) creates a unique workforce to face the growing needs of the CPS industry. EMBS graduates will be uniquely positioned to lead and guide the development of fledgling CPS technology to build the systems of the future.
PRECISE provides an enriching, integrative environment that fosters interaction among students, faculty experts, and CPS industry leaders.
Thank you for taking the time to explore PRECISE. I'd like to extend a personal invitation to visit The Center and meet with myself and our faculty to learn more about our cutting-edge endeavors in CPS research, innovation, and education.
