Visible to the public Smart Flexible Camera Sheet- Ultra-thin Semantic-guided Cooperative Micro-camera Array

Abstract: This highly interdisciplinary research addresses two fundamental challenges in image sensing and image understanding: 1) versatile camera systems in a small form factor, and 2) 3-dimensional scene and object recognition from 2-dimensional photos. These fundamental challenges are tackled together by developing a cyber-physical imaging system, called a smart flexible camera sheet, which integrates an array of many micro-cameras (each millimeters in size) onto a thin substrate.

Visible to the public Smart and Connected Communities Visioning Workshop

Advances in the effective integration of networked information systems, sensing and communication devices, data sources, decision making, and physical infrastructure are transforming society, allowing cities and communities to surmount deeply interlocking physical, social, behavioral, economic, and infrastructural challenges. These novel sociotechnical approaches enable increased understanding of how to intelligently and effectively design, adapt, and manage Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC).

Visible to the public Situational Awareness Strategies for Autonomous Systems in Dynamic Uncertain Environments

Abstract: An event-based communication strategy for navigation using signals of opportunity (SOPs) in a collaborative radio simultaneous and mapping (CoRSLAM) framework is developed. The following problem is considered. Multiple autonomous vehicles (AVs) with access to global navigation satellite system (GNSS) signals are aiding their on-board inertial navigation systems (INSs) with GNSS pseudoranges. While navigating, AV-mounted receivers draw pseudorange measurements on ambient unknown terrestrial SOPs and collaboratively estimate the SOPs' states.

Visible to the public Sensing as a Service - Architectures for Closed-loop Sensor Network Virtualization

The goal of this project is to demonstrate that new cyber-physical architectures will enable closed-loop sensor networks to be shared among multiple applications and to dynamically allocate sensing and computing resources necessary to analyze sensor data and perform sensor actuation.

Visible to the public Semi-Automated Emergency Response System

Explanation of Demonstration: We will present our recent progress on how the coordination of behaviors of automated vehicles can help to improve the safety and efficiency of transportations systems. First, we will demonstrate how to leverage real-time scheduling theory to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion at intersections. Second, we will show how to achieve collision avoidance when a malicious party is present.

Visible to the public Security vs Privacy in Cyber-Physical Systems

This CPS proposal focuses on developing scientific foundations for the research area of CPS Security and Privacy. Our novelty is that while security and privacy are two properties we want these systems to provide, they have not been addressed jointly before.
