Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) are a new class of engineered systems that are intelligent, autonomous, and efficient and are expected to drive innovation in such areas.Contact Us
Science and Technology (S&T) Clusters
• The S&T clusters are formal umbrella organisations to create strong linkages between existing academic institutions, national & state research laboratories, and other stakeholders like relevant ministries, industry partners, start-ups, MSMEs, state governments, philanthropic foundations, and international organisations.
• Six such clusters have been seeded by the Office of the Principal Scientific Advisor (PSA) to the Government of India.
• Delhi Research Implementation and Innovation (DRIIV) is the umbrella body for managing the Delhi S&T cluster.
• DRIIV currently has 40 members across academia (e.g., IIT D, AIIMS, IIIT D, Ashoka University etc.) and industry (Google Research, Mahindra, Maruti etc.)
To make India a leading player in CPS, NM-ICPS to be implemented by the Department of Science & Technology (DST) with a total outlay of Rs. 3660 Crore for a period of five years.
A network of 16 Technology Innovation Hubs (TIHs) set up across the country to implement this.
iHUB-Divya Sampark (TIH Roorkee) and IHFC (TIH IIT Delhi) are two such TIHs
Mandate to invest in such CPS innovations and create a seamless ecosystem for CPS technologies via research, technology and product development, innovation and commercialisation.
