NSF Programs in Energy, Power, Robotics, and Cyber-Physical Systems

Speaker: Dr. Radhakisan Baheti
Affiliation: National Science Foundation

Abstract: The goal of the presentation is to provide an update on National Science Foundation (NSF) funding opportunities in the area of Energy, Power, Control and Networked Systems research and education. Research projects in power systems with renewable energy integration, power electronics, and open-access testbeds will be presented. The presentation will include NSF programs in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Smart and Connected Communities, and National Robotics Initiative. The CPS program brings together researchers from computations, communications, and control disciplines to address important engineering problems.
