The nineteen papers in this special issue focus on the development and applications of cyber-physical systems. These systems refer to the tight link between computational, virtual, and physical resources that drive the potential of having a pervasive effect in the citizens everyday life. Cyber-physical systems find direct applicability in a wide range of areas and disciplines, and promise to transform our world with systems that will far exceed those of today in terms of: effectiveness, adaptability, energy efficiency, precision, reliability, and safety.
