Internet of Things



This chapter addresses cyber-physical systems resilience with a focus on Internet of Things as a particularly prominent example of large-scale cyber-physical systems. The emphasis is on current and future network architectures and systems, highlighting main research issues, as well as technological trends. This chapter opens by discussing and contrasting resilience of organisation and resilience of communications and computing technologies. It then proceeds to explore issues of resilience in two use cases. One deals with smart cities, a particular application scenario of IoT, and another with large-scale networks. This chapter points out that the Internet of Things is evolving towards an Internet of Everything, where everybody and everything are connected to provide multiple services within various contexts such as smart home, wearables, smart city, smart grid, industrial internet, connected car, connected health, smart retail, smart supply chain, and smart farming. In the context of this evolution, a number of challenges must be addressed, most of which touch on issues of resilience, among others.
