Alexander von Humboldt Professorship 2018

Marco Caccamo

At TUM Munich, Marco Caccamo will help to establish a new interdisciplinary, cross-faculty Institute for Cyber-Physical Systems and to drive collaboration with industry.

  • Nominating University: Technische Universität München (TUM)

Computer Engineering / Real-Time Systems

The next industrial revolution is underway: Industry 4.0 envisages the fusion of mechanical production with intelligent, digitally-connected systems to create cyber-physical systems. The control of machinery and processes is conducted in real time via wireless communication networks. Constellations in which immediate and absolutely reliable results are essential are referred to as hard real-time systems. Examples include control systems in power stations, planes and autonomous cars. Marco Caccamo is an expert in these types of safety-critical real-time systems. They are the object of his fundamental research as are concrete, inexpensive applications in collaboration with partners in industry.
