A Federated Control System (FCS) is composed of autonomous entities that cooperate to provide a global behavior. Our focus is on the design of such systems for the convergence of sensing and actuation with communication and computation. A well-designed software architecture is indispensable to orchestrate them. This paper presents the study of one representative system and the ongoing development of a middleware architecture to support software operating it.
