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.
My research is centered on the development of novel technologies for the modeling, design, analysis and management of Embedded Computer Control Systems (ECS) as an integral part of intelligent Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). As the computer systems inside various machinery and equipment, ECS are typically responsible for the realizations of many intelligent application features that account for large portions of the innovations and value-added, e.g. relating to the driving-assistance and self-driving of automotive vehicles. It is expected that ECS would constitute the key enabler for most of the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) in the foreseeable future where physical processes (i.e. the physical part), computation and communication services (i.e. the cyber part) have to be treated as an integrated whole. Targeting the system trustworthiness throughout entire lifecycles, my research is focused especially on the integrations of domain-specific technologies and scientific methods for the effective development of heterogeneous functions, information and communication services, on given electronic, electrical and mechanical platforms. The research contributions are made in the following two areas:
- Model-Based Development of Embedded Control Systems and Cyber-Physical Systems (MBD-ECS-CPS).
- Dynamic Self-Management of Embedded Control Systems and cyber-physical systems (DSM-ECS-CPS).
