As sCPS and IoT need to strike a balance between dependability, open-endedness and adaptability, and operate in dynamic and opportunistic environments, this makes their design design and development is challenging, especially when smartness in terms of ad-hoc cooperation and self-adaptation is pursued. Due to limited connectivity, sCPS typically have to perform coordination and adaptation in a decentralized manner, which further adds to the overall complexity of designing the adaptation. We focus on designing and developing self-adaptation and coordination techniques and methods suitable for sCPS and IoT. In particular, we employ the concept of autonomic component ensembles to describe cooperation and adaptation. This work has been started in the project ASCENS is further being extended.
