Why in News

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Ropar, Punjab is setting up a Sectoral Application Hub in Technologies for Agriculture and Water.

Key Points

  • The hub is being set up under the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber Physical Systems (NMICPS) and is granted by Union Government’s Science and Engineering Research Board.
  • The application hub will bring solutions for stubble management, water quality improvement and mapping of hazardous substances in water.
  • The hub aims at carrying out translational research and work with concerned departments to develop prototypes, products and implementations.

National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber Physical Systems

  • It was launched in 2018 and is implemented by the Department of Science & Technology for a period of five years.
  • NMICPS covers entire India which includes Central Ministries, State Governments, Industry and Academia.
  • Objectives:
    • It is a comprehensive mission which would address technology development, application development, human resource development & skill enhancement, entrepreneurship and start-up development in Cyber-Physical System (CPS) and associated technologies.
    • The mission aims at establishing 15 Technology Innovation Hubs (TIH), six Application Innovation Hubs (AIH) and four Technology Translation Research Parks (TTRP).
    • These Hubs & TTRPs will connect to Academics, Industry, Central Ministries and State Government in developing solutions at reputed academic, R&D and other organizations across the country in a hub and spoke model.
    • The Hubs & TTRPs have four focused areas namely:
      • Technology Development.
      • HRD & Skill Development.
      • Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Start-ups Ecosystem Development.
      • International Collaborations.

Cyber-Physical Systems

  • These systems integrate sensing, computation, control and networking into physical objects and infrastructure, connecting them to the Internet and to each other.
  • Few Potential applications:
    • Driverless cars that communicate securely with each other on smart roads.
    • Sensors in the home to detect changing health conditions.
    • Improving agricultural practices.
    • Enabling scientists to address issues arising out of climate change.
  • Advances in cyber-physical systems will enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security and usability that will far exceed the simple embedded systems of today.
