Research in Design of Cyber-Physical Systems
In this area, the focus is on the design of advanced cyber-physical frameworks to support distributed collaboration involving cyber and physical resources linked through next generation networking principles. One of the research thrusts deal with investigating the role of Virtual/Augmented based ‘virtual worlds’ which can serve as integration links between cyber and physical resources and as foundations for ‘digital twin’ type of models where downstream physical activities can be studied, modified and validated virtually. We are exploring the process of designing such frameworks as well building such frameworks for several domains: advanced manufacturing, healthcare and space systems. Our interests in CPS are strongly intertwined with our work involving IoT based approaches; we are collaborating with researchers at the University of Oregon and the University of Wisconsin at Madison to explore such next generation collaborative frameworks.
