Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) is the next generation of intelligent systems in which computing, communication, and control technologies are tightly integrated. Since it focusing on the close integration and coordination of computing and physical resources, it has widely used in transportation, medical science, intelligent manufacturing, energy Internet systems and other fields. In order to further explore the future development trend of CPS, the paper visually analyzed the related literature about CPS research in Web of Science core database by means of bibliometrics and knowledge map analysis software CiteSpace to more fully clarify the development process, frontier hotspots of the key technologies and main applications about CPS research.
