Drs. Insup Lee (PI), Rahul Mangharam, Nathan Michael, George Pappas, Oleg Sokoslky, Stephanie Weirich (Penn) and Paulo Tabuada (UCLA) received a multidisciplinary grant of $4.8M from DARPA’s High-Assurance Cyber Military Systems (HACMS) Program for “SPARCS: Synthesis of Platform-aware Attack-Resilient Control Systems”
On behalf of National Academy of Engineering Rahul Mangharam was invited to speak at the 2012 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium (US FOE) scheduled for September 13-15, 2012, at the GM Tech Center in Warren, Michigan.
The U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium is a 2-1/2-day meeting convened annually since 1995 by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). The program brings together outstanding engineers (ages 30-45) from industry, academia, and government to discuss pioneering technical work and leading-edge research in various engineering fields and industry sectors. Frontiers of Engineering was initiated to provide an opportunity for top-notch engineers, early in their careers, to learn about cutting-edge developments in fields other than their own, thereby facilitating collaborative work and the transfer of new approaches and techniques across fields.
This award of $40,000 is aimed at promoting collaboration between academic faculty and Intel researchers. The program provides financial and networking support to those faculty members who are early in their careers and who show great promise as future academic leaders in disruptive computing technologies.
The Generic Infusion Pump project, led by Insup Lee, is featured in the article on open-source medical devices in the Economist magazine.
Insup Lee presented “Challenges and Research Directions in Medical Cyber-Physical Systems” at DTC Science and Technology Innovators Series, University of Minnesota, May 1, 2012.
Rahul Mangharam is Co-chairing the 18th IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS 2012), which is part of CPS Week, held in Beijing, China in April 2012.
ICCPS Chairs Insup Lee and Oleg Sokolsky with CPS Week 2012 General Chair Wei Zhao, April 2012, Beijing, China.
The Best Student Paper Award for the 18th IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS 2012) went to Miroslav Pajic et al for their paper entitled “From Verification to Implementation: A Model Translation Tool and a Pacemaker Case Study” (Co-authors: Zhihao Jiang, Insup Lee, Oleg Sokolsky and Rahul Mangharam).
PRECISE's open house is for members of the embedded systems community to learn more about the engagement with the cyber physical systems (CPS) initiative at The University of Pennsylvania. This is the first of many events that both showcase Cyber-Physical Systems research and also serves as a forum to meet any stakeholder in related and complementary areas.
Heart-on-a-Chip, an embedded systems platform that was the 2012 Senior Design Project of Electrical and Systems Engineering (ESE) students Sriram Radhakrishnan, Varun Sampath, and Shilpa Sarode, received first prize in the High-Tech Medical Service category at the 2012 World Embedded Software Competition held in Seoul, Korea. The platform, originally called Pacemaker Verification System, was developed in the laboratory of Rahul Mangharam, Stephen J. Angello Term Assistant Professor in ESE and included collaborations with Zhihao Jiang and Miroslav Pajic, doctoral students in Computer and Information Science and ESE. The project was awarded first prize in the Penn Engineering school-wide Senior Design Competition in May 2012.
