In today’s scenario of the technical world, every industry requires some automation and intelligence that is combined in the form of embedded systems. Embedded systems are generally hardware components, which are fused with additional capabilities using customized software. In general, embedded systems are programmed with microprocessors or microcontrollers that are used predominantly to accomplish any particular task. Thus, the size of the embedded systems varies with different applications. Embedded systems comprise three components namely the physical hardware, application-specific software and Real-Time Operating System (RTOS). Most of the embedded systems are task-oriented focus on particular system functionalities. It possesses significant advantages such as low cost, low power, small-sized and high-performance systems that work predominantly with the dynamic real-time environment. However, as an individual technical entity, embedded systems fail to cope with emerging disruptive technical requirements. This is due to the reason that there exists a crucial gap between the physical and the information world in embedded applications. In contrast, convergence with present-day advanced techniques can bridge the gap and result in significant technological advancements. For instance, the pacemaker is a well-known embedded application; integrating the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies with it could assist in effective real-time health data analysis and emergency assistance.
In the contemporary age of sophisticated technology, internet and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) forms an obvious part of the day to day life. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) is an integration of physical and logical systems to comprise interaction between digital, analog, and human components. These systems act as an establishment factor for various applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), smart cities, industrial internet, smart grid, and several other smart systems (e.g., cars, building, parking, home, etc.). In general, CPS enables composite interaction between various heterogeneous cyber and physical components. The complex nature of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) leads to various purposeful and accidental disturbances across the network making the behavior prediction (normal or faulty system behavior) a difficult process. As an active measure, the convergence of the Cyber-Physical System (CPS) with embedded systems can significantly enhance both the sectors and offer numerous benefits. Further, it automates various systems processes with advanced intelligence measures.
This special issue offers an excellent platform for the researchers to present their novel views and solutions on embedded systems and Cyber-Physical System (CPS) for automation and intelligence measures.
