The concept of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) is the next stage of Embedded Systems development and involves tied integration of physical, cyber, and communication components. The rapid growth in number of interconnected devices and objects requires new governance, aggregation and structuring mechanisms for objects themselves and data generated by them. Furthermore, new organizational structures are needed to cope with scalability and integration of new devices/objects without disturbing already functioning devices/objects. As objects become smarter, with increasing computational capabilities, the implementation of collaboration mechanisms among them becomes relevant. This paper discusses current trends and challenges for implementation of collaborative CPS. Moreover, a smart home scenario is presented, in order to illustrate such challenges.
