Objectives: Whether the ideas of the cyber-physical system could enhance sustainability depends on how could we manage physical and cyberspace by linking them together. However, urban design theories that target physical space by architects and urban planner while the emerging digital city models that originally target cyberspace have been developed by ICT experts.
