UAV Remote Sensing of Cyber-Physical System
In cyber–physical systems (CPS), cyber to physical bridging is a sensing process that uses sensors to acquire spatial information about physical phenomena. The term Metaverse or digital twin can be described as a digital copy of any physical system. The CPS links the physical world to the cyber world through the internet and a computer, and vice versa; the Metaverse performs real-world activities in the cyber world. UAV remote sensing is a foundation and golden thread in cyber to physical bridging since massive, real-time, and high-resolution data can be utilized for deep learning in artificial intelligence, such as self-driving cars. The unexpected COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the creation of a new ecosystem called the Metaverse, which is an extended concept of cyber–physical systems.
This Topic is expected to initiate the conversation that will drive the development of a foundational theory to describe how to utilize the strength of UAV remote sensing in cyber and physical bridging. We particularly welcome research (theories, methods, and practices) that addresses the gaps between industry versus more theoretical academia in cyber to physical bridging. This Topic is particularly interested in multidisciplinary reflection—views from many disciplines, including the social sciences, physical sciences, life sciences, and many others. Potential topics include but are not limited to:1. Review articles on cyber to physical bridging in cyber–physical systems and the Metaverse:
- The role of UAV remote sensing in cyber to physical bridging;
