Cooperating Objects build upon the amalgamation of the physical and virtual (business) world in order to provide some added value for future applications and services relying on both worlds. As we are moving towards a Trillion Node Network Infrastructure, where devices will be interconnected and cooperate, providing and consuming information available, collaborative and emergent behaviours are expected to appear that empower new innovative approaches. The vision of Cooperating Objects is to tackle the emerging complexity by cooperation and modularity. Achieving enhanced system intelligence by cooperation of smart embedded devices pursuing common goals is relevant in many types of perception and system environments.
