Future cyber-physical systems will require more flexibility than
traditional embedded systems that satisfy very specific sets of roles
and can be tightly optimized for this purpose, and CPUs or components
that just satisfy the computational needs can be deployed. More
flexibility requires a safety margin, but this comes at a price:
Assuming that CPS will work at “only” 90% of their computational
capacity, the sheer amount of available devices leaves giant
computational power unused.

Existing cloud approaches to solve the problem by distributing
computational load among networked machines do not match IoT systems
well. The talk introduces the concept of a virtual computing platform
that uses JavaScript as unconventional basis for distributed,
heterogenous computing in networks of IoT systems. An experimental
implementation of the concept is presented and evaluated.
