Cyber-physical systems are a key technology enabling the development of highly automated and autonomous systems. The development of new complex and distributed safety-critical systems increases the challenges of testing due to a variety of verification and validation methods, and the strictly required confidence in the functional correctness of heterogenous cooperating systems and the management of test data. To facilitate these efforts, suitable engineering and risk assessment methods exist that are implemented using a test environment, building the basis for putting the system under test in a controlled test setting.
The research into cyber-physical systems addresses the close interactions and feedback loops between cyber components such as sensing systems, and dynamic physical components such as energy, robotic, maritime and mechanical systems. Various emerging technical challenges such as the rapid increase of functionalities, the significant uncertainties and the stringent requirements on performance, safety, security, flexibility and reliability require the design of increasingly complex cyber-physical system structures.
In this Special Issue, we are seeking submissions that focus on cyber-physical system trends. This Special Issue invites academic and industry researchers in computer science and engineering, electrical engineering and communication engineering, as well as industry engineers and practitioners, to contribute with original articles on all aspects of cyber-physical system trends.
The topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the following domains:
- Design, synthesis and verification of CPS
- Big data modeling and analytics for CPS
- Modeling and optimization for CPS
- Design automation for CPS
- Embedded systems
- CPS fault detection and recovery
- CPS security and privacy
- Industrial CPS and smart manufacturing
- Applications of CPS in various domains such as smart intellectual systems, automotive and transportation systems, smart healthcare, surveillance systems and robotics

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
