Further details


The very recent development of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) provides a smart infrastructure connecting abstract computational artifacts with the physical world. However, building CPS requires new theories and engineering practices that model cyber and physical resources in a unified framework, a challenge that none of the current approaches are able to tackle. The solution to CPS must break the boundary between the cyber world and the physical world by providing a unified infrastructure that permits integrated models addressing issues from both worlds simultaneously.

In this lecture, we propose to use the Web-of-Things (WoT) framework to realize the notion of CPS. A case study is presented based on the WoT framework for building CPS.  Grand challenges to computer science are raised at the end.
