Visible to the public Synergy: Anytime Visual Scene Understanding for Heterogeneous and Distributed CPS

Despite many advances in vehicle automation, much remains to be done: the best autonomous vehicle today still lags behind human drivers, and connected vehicle (V2V) and infrastructure (V2I) standards are only just emerging. In order for such cyber--physical systems to fully realize their potential, they must be capable of exploiting one of the richest and most complex abilities of humans, which we take for granted: seeing and understanding the visual world.

Visible to the public Adaptive Management of Large Energy Storage Systems for Vehicle Electrification

Vehicle systems, being either ground/air/water vehicles, require hundreds/thousands of battery cells to meet their power and energy needs. In this project, we aim to develop comprehensive management solutions of such large-scale batteries with the joint consideration of peak power, operation time, and battery life for vehicle electrification.

Visible to the public CPS: Synergy: Collaborative Research: Control of Vehicular Traffic Flow via Low Density Autonomous Vehicle

Explanation of Demonstration: Traffic waves will arise in the absence of bottlenecks as a result of human driving behavior alone. We conduct an experiment on a ring-road track to demonstrate the ability of a single autonomous vehicle in a flow of human-piloted vehicles to dampen these waves. In this demonstration, we presented a virtual reality video of the experiment.

Visible to the public CPS Frontier: Foundations of Resilient CybEr-Physical Systems (FORCES)

The exponential growth of information and communication technologies have caused a profound shift in the way humans engineer systems leading to the emergence of closed-loop systems involving strong integration and coordination of physical and cyber components, often referred to as cyber-physical systems (CPSs). Because of these disruptive changes, physical systems can now be attacked through cyberspace and cyberspace can be attacked through physical means.
