The objective of the Agenda CPS project (2010 to 2012) led by the German National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech) on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) was to establish an integrated CPS research agenda allowing Germany to shape this technological revolution as a lead market and provider in competition with other industrial and technological players.
Agenda CPS identified four major fields of application up to the year 2025. These are:
- Energy: Cyber-physical systems for the smart grid
- Mobility: Cyber-physical systems for networked mobility
- Health: Cyber-physical systems for telemedicine and remote diagnosis
- Industry ("Smart Factory"): Cyber-physical systems for industry and automated production.
