With the ongoing miniaturization of information technology a new phenomenon is emerging; mini-computers are no longer isolated hardware objects such as personal computers, laptops, or mobile phones. Rather, mini-computers have become an inseparable part of many physical objects and locations. Former purely physical systems are thus expanding to Cyber-Physical Systems, or in other terms, to the Internet of Things, leading to a seamless combination of digital and physical system features.
