Smart measuring instruments for cyber-physical systems

Smart measuring instruments are the prerequisite for CPS design as they constitute the essential units of information-measuring subsystems. There is a set of smart measurement instruments which is divided into the following subsets: smart sensors, smart transducers, their grids etc. that can be joined together in modern wireless sensor networks. The emerging field of cheap and easily deployed sensors offers an unprecedented opportunity for a wide spectrum of various applications. When combined, they offer numerous advantages over traditional networks.
