This paper describes a toolkit for synthesizing hybrid supervisory control systems starting from the popular Simulink/Stateflow modeling environment. The toolkit provides a systematic strategy for translating Simulink/Stateflow models to hybrid automata and a discrete abstraction-based algorithm for synthesizing supervisory controllers.
—Cyber-physical systems bridge the gap between cyber components, typically written in software, and the physical world. Software written with traditional development practices, however, likely contains bugs or unintended interactions among components, which can result in uncontrolled and possibly disastrous physical-world interactions.

Advances in wireless vehicular networks present us with opportunities for developing new distributed traffic control algorithms that avoid phenomena such as abrupt phase transitions. Towards this end, we study the problem of distributed traffic control in a partitioned plane where the movement of all entities (vehicles) within each partition (cell) is… (More)
