Visible to the public GASP: Geolocated Allergen Sensing Platform

This project combines Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and gigabit networks to address major health concerns due to air pollution. A wide range of health outcomes are affected by air pollution. In March 2014 the World Health Organization (WHO) released a report that in 2012 alone, a staggering 7 million people died as a result of air pollution exposure, one in eight of the total global deaths. A major component of this pollution is airborne particulate matter. Approximately 50 million Americans have allergic diseases.


Visible to the public CPS: Synergy: Executable Distributed Medical Best Practice Guidance System for Emergency Care from Rural to Regional Center Hosp

Executable Medical Best Practice Guidance (EMBG) system is designed to prevent unjustified deviation from medical best practice guidance across a hospital network, consisting of rural hospitals, regional center hospital and ambulance service.

Like a GPS-enabled navigation system, EMBG provides patient state by state treatment advises based on dynamic patients' conditions and clinical environment. The safety of the EMBG system is built upon formal theoretical verifications and clinical validations in collaboration with medical professionals.


Visible to the public CPS: Frontier: SONYC: A Cyber-Physical System for Monitoring, Analysis and Mitigation of Urban Noise Pollution

The SONYC project is a smart cities initiative focused on developing a cyber-physical system (CPS) for the monitoring, analysis and mitigation of urban noise pollution. Noise pollution is one of the topmost quality of life issues for urban residents in the U.S. with proven effects on health, education, the economy, and the environment.
