Factories in Industry 4.0 are growing in complexity due to the incorporation of a large number of Cyber-Physical System (CPSs) which are logically and often physically distributed. Traditional monolithic control and monitoring structures are not able to address the increasing requirements regarding flexibility, operational time, and efficiency as well as resilience. Self-Aware health Monitoring and Bio-inspired coordination for distributed Automation systems (SAMBA) is a cognitive application…
