Shanghai Industrial Technology Research Institute (SITRI) and the IEEE Technical Committee on Cyber-Physical Systems, an IEEE constituency which aims at promoting interdisciplinary research and education in the field of cyber-physical systems (CPS) and oversees all CPS related activities within IEEE, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for ongoing collaboration and cooperation in developing new technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT) market.

IEEE and SITRI define ‘Cyber-Physical Systems’ as all aspects of systems where intelligent feedback and control, connect embedded computing systems with the physical environment, involving data analytics, machine learning, and real-time intelligent control.

“The IEEE organization is recognized in China and throughout the world as the premier professional society for the electronics age,” said Charles Yang, president of SITRI. “Through this partnership, SITRI and IEEE TC-CPS will research and develop the standards needed to enable the promise of IoT to be realized.”
