Abstract
With the nowadays improvements of the information technology, more and more smart sensors are deployed to monitor and survey our daily life. Instead of the centralized approach, sensor networks are evolving towards complete Cyber-Physical Systems, where sensing, processing and communications are spread among the network. This decentralization comes at a price though. Moving sensing, processing and communication capabilities to the network edges, pose newer and unresolved challenges for data processing, management and system coordination.<br><br>This thesis aims at presenting a novel abstraction of distributed processing network to enhance the road users safety. Along with the definition of a system description formalism, the main contributions encompass a processing architecture proposal and a coordination model for smart sensing application. These contributions directly address the previously introduced challenges, by proposing and implementing an autonomous video-enabled Cyber-Physical System for the Smart City scenario. <br><br>By following the latest technological trends, we are on the verge of a new generation of smart objects, where reconfigurable heterogeneous Cyber-Physical Systems will be massively deployed in our daily life. The Internet of Reconfigurable Things paradigm is ready to come.
