Proceedings of the IEEE -- Special Issue on CPS
The January 2012 Special Issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE focuses on Cyber-Physical Systems. The issue includes 19 research articles covering new research and technology advances, open problems, and technical challenges. The papers are organized into three categories: theoretical foundations, small-scale applications, and large-scale applications. The overarching themes of the contributions are the consequences of the tight coupling of the parallel cyber and physical worlds: challenges in all aspects of design, and opportunities in developing products with revolutionary new capabilities.
