Networks of Cyber Physical System (CPS) Gaps

These diagrams were created using the Gephi network analysis tool. Each node represents and gap that needs addressing to enable the successful implementation of cyber physical systems. The nodes are classified and coloured by the NCOIC infrastructure scale with the highest level towards the top of the diagram. 72 EU projects addressing gaps are also included

Each link or edge represents a dependency upon another gap or a gap addressed by a project.

The diagram is produced by randomly arranging the nodes and then using an elastic force algorithm to rearrange the nodes. The final placement brings nodes with many links closer together.

To interpret the diagram each node is highlighted in turn and its connected neighbours highlighted. This uncovers relationships between gaps and projects that are otherwise hard to see.

The diagram is saved with the highlighted node number in the file name.
