Abstract

Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) are emerging as a new technology, which is used to provide seamless interaction between the physical and cyber worlds. This novel paradigm is a natural evolution and extension of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and control models to allow for effective monitoring and control of physical systems from the computing environment. In order to support this interface and allow such smooth interactions, efficient networking and communication between the physical and cyber worlds take a very important and critical role. In this paper, we identify the various categories and applications of CPS systems, and characterize the associated data traffic that is generated. We also discuss the different protocols and requirements that are needed at the various networking layers for these applications. Subsequently, we identify important parameters such as bandwidth, delay, reliability, security, and mobility, which are essential in order to allow for effective and robust operation of the various CPSs.
