Cyber-physical systems explained

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are a mix of computation, networking and physical processes, in which the embedded computational algorithms and networks have the power to monitor and control the physical components.

By using a combination of machines, sensory devices, embedded computational intelligence and various communication mechanisms, CPS monitor physical elements with computer-based algorithms tied to the internet. This means they are capable of autonomously functioning based on their physical surroundings.

In light of advancements in analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and communications, there is increased demand for intelligent machines that can interact with the environment around them, such as driverless cars which monitor and communicate with their surroundings, and smart appliances that optimise energy consumption. CPS are stimulating significant changes in quality of life and forming the basis of smart infrastructure, products, and services.

As this kind of technology continues to become more integrated into our everyday lives, here are four areas of CPS we can expect to come to the fore.


Spycams to dominate 5G IoT market until 2023

Nearly three quarters of 5G IoT endpoint devices installed in 2020 will be outdoor surveillance cameras, taking the total number of 5G-equipped spycams to 6.2 million.

That’s according to analyst house Gartner, which has just released its latest predictions for 5G IoT use cases (where connected devices leverage the emerging next-gen mobile network for connectivity).


5G will not solve UK’s rural connectivity problems

The introduction of 5G networks will not solve the connectivity issues affecting many rural communities across the UK, new research has claimed.

uSwitch.com says its latest survey has found that many phone users are still struggling with 4G signal, and many have no current plans to upgrade to 5G because most of the launch sites are cities and urban areas.


5G and the social world

With its faster speeds, greater network capacity and incredibly low latency, 5G is set to be a game changer. Each new generation of communication technology has brought significant changes to the way we work and live. The network driven world began with 3G, marking the start of mobile internet and 4G enabling video streaming and social media. 5G is set to amplify all these things, but it’s not just about downloading video from Netflix faster.


Estonia curbs state use of Huawei 5G technology

Estonia is set to restrict the use of equipment and technology from Chinese telecom giant Huawei in its government sector.

Officials in the country, which is one of Europe’s most wired and technologically advanced nations, cited security concerns and recommendations by the US, a key Nato ally.
