Forkortelse for: Cyber physical system
En betegnelse for en mekanisme, der styres eller overvåges af computerbaserede algoritmer, som er tæt integreret med internettets og dets brugere. Definitionen på CPS er mange - her et uddrag:

Hermann et al.: “An important component of Industrie 4.0 is the fusion of the physical and the virtual world. This fusion is made possible by Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). CPS are ‘integrations of computation and physical processes. Embedded computers and networks monitor and control the physical processes, usually with feedback loops where physical processes affect computations and vice versa.”

Zhong et al: “... a mechanism through which physical objects and software are closely intertwined, enabling different components to interact with each other in a myriad of ways to exchange information.”

Industri 4.0

En overordnet betegnelse for den fjerde industrielle revolution. Industri 4.0 er baseret på digitalisering og betegner mængden af nye, hurtigere og billigere teknologier, som virksomheder kan udnytte til nye produkter, processer og services. Definitionen på Industri 4.0 er mange - her et uddrag:. . Hermann et al. “Industrie 4.0 is a collective term for technologies and concepts of value chain organization. Within the modular structured Smart Factories of Industrie 4.0, CPS monitor physical processes, create a virtual copy of the physical world and make decentralized decisions. Over the IoT, CPS communicate and cooperate with each other and humans in real time. Via the IoS, both internal and cross-organizational services are offered and utilized by participants of the value chain.”. . Gilchrist: “Industry 4.0 is essentially a revised approach to manufacturing that makes use of the latest technological inventions and innovations, particularly in merging operational and information and communication technology.”. . Ras et al.: “A coordinated push for automation, big data, and internet-of-things in the smart factory and other cyber-physical systems (CPS).”
