Abstract

This paper briefly presents a reference architecture called Virtual Physical Space (ViPS). The purpose of the architecture is to be able to adapt to the development of various Cyber-Physical-Social applications. In the paper, a possible adaptation for a smart seaside city is discussed. The need for virtualization of things from the physical world in a formal way is also considered. Furthermore, the virtualization and modeling of spatial aspects through the AmbiNet formalism is demonstrated by an example.

Keywords
