Further results on cloud control systems


This paper is devoted to further investigating the cloud control systems (CCSs). The benefits and challenges of CCSs are provided. Both new research results of ours and some typical work made by other researchers are presented. It is believed that the CCSs can have huge and promising effects due to their potential advantages.
