Abstract: Cyber-physical vehicle systems (CPVSs) are advancing due to progress in real-time applications, control and artificial intelligence. Multi-objective design optimisation maximises CPS efficiency, capability and safety, while online regulation enables the vehicle to be responsive to disturbances, modelling errors and uncertainties. CPVS optimisation occurs at design-time and at run-time. We will survey the run-time cooperative optimisation or co-optimisation of cyber and physical systems, which have historically been considered separately. A run-time CPVS is also cooperatively regulated or co-regulated when cyber and physical resources are utilised in a manner that is responsive to both cyber and physical system requirements. This paper surveys research that considers both cyber and physical resources in co-optimisation and co-regulation schemes with applications to mobile robotic and vehicle systems. Time-varying sampling patterns, sensor scheduling, anytime control, feedback scheduling, task and motion planning and resource sharing are examined. Cyber-physical systems will transform how we interact with the physical world around us. Many grand challenges wait in the economically vital domains of transportation, healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, energy, defence, aerospace and buildings.
