About me

Dejiu Chen is a Docent and Associate Professor in Embedded Control Systems, focusing on trustworthy human-compatible Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) with automotive and medical applications.

Research Description:

In industries and societies, a significant challenge emerges from an increasingly more extensive deployments of various socio-technical systems featuring a new generation of intelligent cyber-physical systems, aiming for enhanced effectiveness and efficiencies. One critical aspect essential for the success involves detecting and handling unexpected emergent behaviors resulting from design deficiencies or component degradations. If these issues are not properly treated, they could result in system failures and hazards.

My research focuses on developing novel strategies and innovative industrial frameworks for advanced situation-awareness and self-management in intelligent cyber-physical systems. The approach involves the development of advanced edge/cloud services for 1. the monitoring of operational conditions of the systems, humans, and environments, and 2. the diagnosis, prognosis, and health management. The foundational principle relies on a systematic integration of data-driven ML/AI algorithms with physical testing, virtual simulation, established prior knowledge, formal modeling, and analysis, as shown in the figure below:
