eXplore Cyber-Physical Systems is a research unit dedicated to educate students and perform research on a small-scale Cyber-Physical System.
The xCPS platform, located at the ES lab, is a small scale machine mimicking a production line capable of assembling and disassembling cylindrical objects. These assembly pieces come in two complementary shapes, and three colours: silver, black or red.
