It is the Department of Science and Technology that has launched Cyber Physical systems programme dealing with self-driven cars, autonomous unmanned vehicles and aircraft navigation systems. The amount of Rs. 3000- crore has been conceived for it and it will first take root in some of the Indian Institutes of Technology.

What is Cyber Physical Systems (CPS)?

  • It is an interdisciplinary field that deals with deployment of computer-based systems that do stuffs in the physical world.
  • For example, self-driven cars produced by Google and Tesla. It is a mechanism controlled or monitored by computer-based algorithms, tightly integrated with the internet and its users.
  • It has a transdisciplinary approaches, merging theory of cybernetics, design and process science and mechatronics.
  • In this system physical and software components are deeply intertwined, each operating on different spatial and temporal scales.
  • Autonomous unmanned vehicles (UAVs) and aircraft navigation systems and smart grids (where electricity is optimally distributed on the basis of calculations in real time by micro-processors) also qualify as CPS.

What is the department of science and technology?

  • It is the department within the Ministry of Science and Technology in India
  • It established in May 1971, it was made to promote new areas of scicne and technology and to play the role of a nodal department for organizing, coordinating and promoting scientific and technologies actives in the country
  • It has been giving various funds to approve scientific projects in India.
  • It also supports various researchers in India to attend conferences abroad and to go for experimental works.
  • The head of the department being Dr. Harsh Vardhan and Ashutosh Sharma being the present secretary.

Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) programme

  • The initiative of the CPS is to break silos in academia and encourage greater synergy between the university scientists and industry
  • The center of excellence would be developed at the IITs and universities
