Cyber-Physical Systems are often implementing distributed critical services, therefore heavily relying on different communication techniques. My task is to assess and discover new techniques that can be used in the demonstration system of the department at the university.
First of all, I start my work with researching the existing literature and exploring the available technologies. I review and test these protocols and examine them for future usability.
In addition, my task is to research and to implement different benchmarking approaches that can be used for the evaluation of the different communication approaches. Several of them can be found in the available literature, but often they are published without the implementation, so I have to develop my own version of them.
The result of my thesis is primarily the thorough analysis of the literature and the development and implementation of a prototype benchmarking system with which I do some initial measurements. It is important to note that the measurements are made to be representative of the department’s demonstration system.
