The Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber-Physical Systems (RBCCPS) was established as an interdisciplinary research and academic centre in the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in 2011. The Centre focuses on experimental and theoretical research to gain a deep understanding of key cyber-physical system (CPS) components: Sensor and actuation systems, modeling and analytics sciences, control and optimization frameworks and the associated systems engineering encompassing security, verification, simulation, computation, communication, signal processing, electronics and middleware.
The Centre brings together expertise from various departments and in conjunction with in-house research staff and students to develop and apply CPS concepts in three focus areas:
- IoT enabled socio-technical systems
- Autonomous navigation of unmanned vehicles
- Machine learning for robotics
The Faculty Experts, PostDocs and Students are primarily working on the verticals of
- Devices and materials
- Algorithms and analytics
- Communications and networks
- Modeling and simulation
- Control and optimisation
The Centre Research and Technical Staff is combining this work in the development of platforms and pilots:
- Applications: Integration and demonstration
- Software and embedded stack: Design and validation
- IoT and Robotics: Design and prototyping
The Centre is funded by a philanthropic grant by Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions, India and also receives targeted and project-oriented funding from other funding agencies.
