The economic and societal potential of Internet of Things (IoT) is significantly greater than what has been realized while huge investments have been made over the years from government and private section to develop the technology. There are still many challenges in designing and building IoT systems including reliability, scalability, and modularity at different level of abstraction from both software and hardware framework. Today's aerospace factory floor is nothing like the hectic, noisy production facility of the past. The latest techniques, designs, and equipment make modern manufacturing efficient, organized, and structured. And what about tomorrow? The future of the aircraft factory is a research and technology project aimed to push emerging technologies to improve the competitiveness of manufacturing processes where manual operations are still predominant today. This presentation will take a deep dive into platform-based design technique for cyber-physical systems, an approach that references to an explicit design process instead of focusing on isolated steps such as simulation, software synthesis, or verification. Leveraging this approach, a case study of how cyber-physical systems and big analog data are enabling smarter production factory of the future today.
