Leveraging Big Data Techniques for Cyber-Physical Systems

Call For Book Chapters (pdf version)

Cyber-physical system (CPS) addresses the close interactions and feedback controls between cyber components and physical components, where cyber components refer to the sensing and communication systems, while the physical components comprise of a wide range of systems in practice. Due to the fast increase in system complexities, the operations of CPS involve sensing, processing and storage of massive amount of data. This nature of big data also imposes fundamental challenges on the management and control of the operations of CPS, which involve sensing, processing and storage of massive amount of data. In addition, there is a need to overcome some hardware and software design challenges of CPS in multiple aspects such as performance, energy efficiency, security, privacy, reliability, sustainability, fault tolerance, scalability and flexibility.

This book highlights some original research and survey articles on the topic of big data sensing, processing, storage, and hardware/software design for CPS. The topics covered by this book are given in above-mentioned Table of Contents.
