IIT Bombay organises 4th Technology Innovation in Cyber-Physical Systems workshop 

Cutting-edge technologies in the management of diabetes and optimised mobile surgical unit for cataract surgeries were showcased

The 4th Technology Innovation in Cyber-Physical Systems (TIPS) workshop was recently organised at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. It is a bi-annual workshop wherein each of the 25 Technology Innovation Hubs TIHs demonstrates the progress and achievements made. It is a platform for all the stakeholders including the government, startups, investors, academia, and industry, to interact, exchange ideas and witness the cutting-edge technology development in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) domain.

Prof Abhay Karandikar, Secretary, Department of Science and Technology speaking at the inaugural ceremony said “The cyber-physical systems represent an area that is becoming more and more important in the increasingly pervasive digital world and will drive all sectors of our economy shortly.” He further highlighted that “The 25 Technology Innovation Hubs are generating disruptive technologies through unique initiatives.”

The Technology Innovation Hubs are housed within premier academic institutes. Offering a flexible environment for R&D, these TIHs are dedicated to advancing technology development and translation, fostering human resource and skill development, promoting entrepreneurship and start-ups, and facilitating international collaborative research endeavours in CPS. Stellar technologies from some of the hubs were showcased in a compendium released on the occasion. 

These included smart IoT solutions for monitoring crop and soil health and smart patch for early warning and management of diabetes, from TIH of IIT Bombay; IT-OT Security Operation Center for 24X7 monitoring of cyber threats & Blockchain Technology-based System for secure, transparent, tamper-proof storage and management of Development Rights Certificates (DRCs) in cities, from C3i Hub of IIT Kanpur; 5G Lab and standardisation effect lab and optimised mobile surgical unit for cataract surgeries in remote areas from Pravartak Technologies Foundation of  IIT Madras; Autonomous Vehicles – Map-based Navigation from TiHAN Foundation of IIT Hyderabad; Biodiversity Sensor and AI-powered livestock management CPS to monitor the behaviour of livestock, Of Awadh Foundation of IIT Ropar.

The hubs learnt from each other’s success stories and failures through the two-day workshop. The workshop also included an investor pitch for showcasing products and technologies to venture capitalists and angel investors for funding and a tech expo in which cutting-edge disruptive technologies developed by the hubs were displayed.
