Intelligent & High Assurance Autonomy for CPS

The research in the FD&C/HS Lab (Lab Director: Professor Inseok Hwang) focuses on two directions: fundamental research on Intelligent and High Assurance autonomy for the Cyber-Physical System (CPS), which is a complex (networked) system with interacting physical and logical components, using hybrid systems theory, and its applications to safety-critical aerospace systems such as aircraft, spacecraft, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), and Air Traffic Control (ATC), and multiple-vehicle systems (e.g., swarm of UAS). Note that aerospace systems are good examples of the CPS. For example, a UAS (similarly, aircraft and spacecraft) is composed of an autopilot which is a logical element and a vehicle that is a physical element, thus it is a CPS. (learn more)

Prof. Hwang named University Faculty Scholar

Prof. Inseok Hwang has been named a University Faculty Scholar. The University Faculty Scholar program was created at Purdue in 1998. Recipients of this honor are tenured associate professors and full professors who have been in that rank for no more than five years and are named in recognition of their scholarship.

University Faculty Scholars are nominated by their academic areas, reviewed by a committee of named and distinguished professors in the College of Engineering that makes a recommendation to the dean, and approved by the provost. They receive funding to support their research. The newly named University Faculty Scholars will begin their five-year terms in the fall of 2017. (learn more)
