Cyber-physical systems operate at the intersection of digital and physical worlds. Examples range in size and complexity from automobile cruise control and aircraft auto-pilot systems to highway, water and air traffic control systems.

AMBER Lab Head Aaron Ames pictured with two-legged, humanlike robot

Dr. Aaron Ames and students in the A&M Bipedal Engineering Robotics, or AMBER, Lab are working to make science fiction a reality--two-legged, humanlike robots that can walk among us. AMBER 2.0 (pictured with Ames) is the second robot Ames has built, and exhibits more advanced walking behaviors than its predecessor, AMBER 1.0. The researchers studied human walking and developed a "formal" description of walking, and then applied that description to robots.

Map showing traffic as reported by Berkeley's Mobile Millennium visualization system

With the Mobile Millennium visualization system, more than 60 million GPS data points per day from mobile devices are streamed into flow models, which are used to broadcast traffic information resulting from the fusion of this data and additional monitoring infrastructure.
