Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are engineered systems that enable seamless integration of the computation and physical objects in our daily lives, and have the potential to fundamentally transform the way people interact with the physical world. In recent years, the fast development of CPS has driven significant innovations in a large range of application domains ranging from smart manufacturing, smart home and communities, autonomous driving, smart and personalized healthcare, building design, architecture, etc. Advances in CPS will also enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability that will expand the horizons of these critical systems.
This Special Issue aims to cover the most recent technical advances in all CPS aspects, including theory, tools, applications, systems, test-beds and field deployments. Both theoretical derivations or practical development of CPS systems and testbeds are welcomed. Reviews and surveys of the state-of-the-art in CPS systems are also welcomed. Topics of interest to this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- CPS system architecture
- Control optimization of CPS
- Machine learning for CPS
- Data mining and analytics
- Game theory applied to CPS applications
- Model-based design and verification of CPS
- Mobile and cloud computing for CPS
- Wired and wireless networking for CPS problems
- Signal processing and fusion for CPS
- Human-in-the-loop shared or supervisory control of CPS
- Practical application-oriented system design for CPS
- Security and privacy for CPS
