Centre for Cyber Physical systems

Introduction

Centre for Cyber Physical Systems (CCPS) aims promoting collaborative research activities with impetus on developing and interfacing intelligent devices with enhanced cyber security. The much contemplated Smart cities, Industry 4.0 and Health care 4.0 are quintessentially dependent on the advances realized in CPS, targeting in the process a more responsive, precise, reliable and efficient systems. It is therefore axiomatic that innovation in CPS holds the key in reshaping the world. With the intention to align with the evolution, VIT CCPS will spearhead and support advances in the fundamental knowledge and tools, to make Cyber Physical Systems a pragmatic reality.

The key emphasis of the research centre are:

  • to provide state-of-the- art infrastructure to student fraternity and researchers to create and excel in Cyber physical systems design.
  • to actively engage in fundamental and applied research to solve radical problems using Computer vision, Machine learning, Sensor Networks, Data Analytics, Network and Data security.
  • to seamlessly integrate interdisciplinary technologies and design cyber physical components and systems.
  • to promote Industrial collaboration in cutting edge technologies for innovative product development.
  • to prominently engage in impending application areas such as smart health care, smart merchandise, smart agriculture, etc., and foster economical solutions.

 

Vision

To be a pioneer in imparting social and scientific expertise in research nationwide and to extend globally in the space of Cyber Physical Systems.
