This paper introduces the area of Cyber-Physica Systems (CPS) and describes the relation to Modelica and Modelica-based tools. Special aspects of CPS applications that should make Modelica well suited for their modeling and simulation are highlighted.

Recent Modelica developments facilitating integrated model-based system development applicable to CPS are presented. Especially; it is shown how detailed timing simulations; involving both real-time task scheduling and network communication; are realized in Modelica. A robot example is used to demonstrate the new CPS simulation features.
