The term “cyber-physical systems (CPS)” is currently one of the hottest technical terms. It was introduced in order to express a view on systems—such as cars, buildings and the smart grid—which is wider than that on traditional embedded systems. This widening includes the modeling of the physical environment and the linking of embedded systems through the use of network-based communications. One question about cyber-physical systems pops up immediately: What is new for cyber-physical systems? More in particular: What is new for cyber-physical system software?
