Visible to the public CAREER- Hierarchical Control for Large-Scale Cyber-Physical Systems Poster.pdf

Many complex engineering systems involve interactions among a large number of agents with coupled dynamics and decisions due to their shared environment and resources. Such systems are often operated using a hierarchical architecture, where a coordinator determines some macroscopic control signal to steer the population to achieve a desired group objective while respecting local preferences and constraints for individual agents. Examples include electricity demand response programs, ground and air transportation systems, data center power management, robotic networks, among others.

Visible to the public A Gaussian-Mixture Model Based Detection against Data Integrity Attacks in Smart Grid Poster.pdf

The goal of this project is to establish a theoretical and empirical foundation for secured and efficient energy resource management in the smart grid - a typical energy-based cyber-physical system and the future critical energy infrastructure for the nation. In this study, we focus on the detection threats and propose a Gaussian-Mixture Model-based Detection (GMMD) scheme to mitigate data integrity attacks.

Visible to the public Cyber-Physical Fingerprinting for Internet of Things Authentication

In this poster, we expose some of our recent results on authenatication of the Internet of things.
Our results include new machine learning approaches for authenaticating IoT devices based on their environment,
as well as novel ideas to distinguish malicious attacks from normal environmental changes. The poster also
presents some of our related works on IoT jamming and stochastic moving target defense in IoT-like environments.
Our extensive outreach activities within the scope of the GCTC challenge are also presented.

Visible to the public CPS- Synergy- Collaborative Research- Architectural and Algorithmic Solutions for Large Scale PEV Integration into Power Grids

This project designs algorithms for the integration of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PEVs) into the power grid. Specifically, the project will formulate and solve optimization problems critical to various entities in the PEV ecosystem -- PEV owners, commercial charging station owners, aggregators, and distribution companies -- at the distribution / retail level.

Visible to the public Crowdsourcing Urban Bicycle Level of Service Measures

Over the past two decades, cities across the country have experienced a tremendous growth in cycling. As cities expand and improve their bicycle networks, local governments and bicycle associations are looking into ways of making cycling in urban areas safer. However, one of the main obstacles in decreasing the number of bicycle crashes is the lack of information regarding cycling safety at the street level. Historically, Bicycle Level of Service (BLOS) models have been used to measure street safety.

Visible to the public Energy and Delay- Network Optimization in Cyber Physical Human Sensing Systems

This project aims to investigate energy and delay sensitive sensing, communication, decision-making and control in the context of cyber physical systems. We particularly focus on systems where sensors with varying accuracy observe heterogeneous source signals that must be processed and communicated and used for inference and decision-making purposes.

Visible to the public A Unified Solution of Mixed Traffic Sensing, Tracking and Acceptable Active Accident Avoidance for On-Demand Automated Shuttles

OSU SMOOTH (Smart Mobile Operation: OSU Transportation Hub) is an autonomous vehicle testbed that aims at providing intelligent transportation systems research for the first- and last-mile of an individual's commute. It augments current public transportation infrastructure by providing users access to a heterogeneous network of on-demand autonomous vehicles.

Visible to the public CPS- Synergy- Collaborative Research- A Unified System Theoretic Framework for Cyber Attack-Resilient Power Grid

There is an increased research trend towards the application of distributed control algorithms for network power system control. We analyze the vulnerability of these distributed control algorithms to a potential attack on the communication network. We show that that the decentralized load-side control algorithm for frequency regulation in power system is fragile to communication channel uncertainty. We also propose an optimization-based framework for the design of distributed load-side control algorithm robust to communication channel uncertainty.
