Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) find applications in a number of large-scale, safety-critical domains e.g. transportation, smart cities, etc. While the increased CPS adoption has resulted in the maturation of solutions for CPS development, a single consistent science of system integration for CPS has not yet been consolidated. Therefore CPS development remains a complex and error-prone task, often requiring a collection of separate tools. Moreover, interactions amongst CPS might lead to new behaviors and emerging properties, often with unpredictable results. Rather than being an unwanted byproduct, these interactions can become an advantage if explicitly managed since early design stages. CPSwarm tackles this challenge by proposing a new science of system integration and tools to support engineering of CPS swarms. CPSwarm tools will ease development and integration of complex herds of heterogeneous CPS that collaborate based on local policies and that exhibit a collective behavior capable of solving complex, industrial-driven, real-world problems. The project defines a complete toolchain that enables the designer to: (a) set-up collaborative autonomous CPSs; (b) test the swarm performance with respect to the design goal; and (c) massively deploy solutions towards reconfigurable CPS devices. Model-centric design and predictive engineering are the pillars of the project, enabling definition, composition, verification and simulation of collaborative, autonomous CPS while accounting for various dynamics, constraints and for safety, performance and cost efficiency issues. CPSwarm pushes forward CPS engineering at a larger scale, with an expected significant reduction of development time and costs. Project results will be tested in real-world use cases in 3 different domains: swarms of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Rovers for safety and security purposes; autonomous driving for freight vehicles; and swarm of opportunistically collaborating smart bikes.


An apparatus for generating an overview image of a plurality of images comprises an image preprocessor, a storage unit and an image processor. The image preprocessor preprocesses a new image by assigning the new image to a position in the overview image based on a position information contained by meta-data of the new image. The storage unit stores a plurality of preprocessed or processed images of the overview image and is able to provide the overview image containing the plurality of preprocessed or processed images at their assigned positions for displaying. Further, the image processor comprises an accuracy information input for receiving an accuracy information of the position information and a controllable processing engine. The image processor determines an overlap region of the preprocessed new image and a stored preprocessed or a stored processed image within the overview image based on the assigned position of the preprocessed new image and the assigned position of the stored preprocessed or stored processed image. Further, the controllable processing engine processes the preprocessed new image by re-adjusting the assigned position of the preprocessed new image based on a comparison of features of the overlap region of the preprocessed new image and the stored preprocessed or stored processed image. The controllable processing engine is controlled by an accuracy information of the position information received by the accuracy information input, so that a maximal re-adjustment of the assigned position of the preprocessed new image is limited based on the received accuracy information of the position information.


In a relay scheme, a wireless source apparatus, a wireless destination apparatus and a wireless relay apparatus cooperate for handling transmission failures by space/time diverse channels. In the case of the successful direct transmission, reduced or no additional overhead for the relay selection is incurred. Thus, for a good SNR between source and destination, the inventive protocol has similar performance as a standard approach. In the case of a transmission failure e.g., due to small scale fading, a transmission via a different communication path implementing spatial diversity via a selected relay is supported. The device is to only activate the overhearing of signals in case of weak signal quality between sender and receiver. This selection of relay devices is done by demand only. A specific protocol for the reservation of the wireless medium for the entire cooperative communication has been specified.

The storage unit stores a plurality of processed images of the overview image and is able to provide the overview image containing the plurality of processed images at their assigned positions for displaying. The image processor determines feature points of a new image and compares the determined feature points of the new image with feature points of a stored processed image to identify common feature points and to obtain 3-dimensional positions of the common feature points. Further, the image processor determines common feature points located within a predefined maximum distance of relevance to a reference plane based on the 3-dimensional positions of the common feature points to identify relevant common feature points. Further, the image processor processes the new image by assigning the new image to a position in the overview image based on a comparison of an image information of each relevant common feature point of the new image with an image information of each corresponding relevant common feature point of the stored processed image without considering common feature points located beyond the predefined maximum distance of relevance to the reference plane.

A more efficient OFDM concept of the UW-OFDM type is obtained, To this end, the systematic subdivision of the frequency domain subcarriers into ones representing redundant subcarriers and ones representing data subcarriers is given up, and a non-systematic mapping function such as a non-systematic generator matrix is used instead in order to map the data symbols onto the frequency domain samples.
