Abstract: In this talk we discuss the design of cyber-physical systems to support behavioural interventions. First, we will discuss factors that motivate our interest in systems that arise at the intersection of human behaviours and control theory. We then present three examples of specific applications of our work in which control theory is used to influence human behaviours (in the health domains). The first example is a system to protect cyclists from the effects of road pollution; the second is an example of control theoretic ideas applied to the design of lockdowns; the third is an example of sampling strategies to find bridge nodes in the context of viral spreading. Finally, we present open problems and applications that constitute frontier topics in the design of cyber-physical systems.
