Focus: GS II: Government Policies and Intervention

Why in News?

Recently, the Experts deliberated on ways to strengthen the National Mission in Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) at the National Workshop on Technology Innovation in Cyber-Physical Systems (TIPS).

National Mission in Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems:

  • The National Mission in Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) is a five-year-long mission launched in 2018 with a total outlay of Rs. 3660 Crores.

The mission aims to achieve comprehensive development in the following areas:

  • Technology development
  • Application development
  • Human resource development & skill enhancement
  • Entrepreneurship and start-up development in CPS and associated technologies.
  • 25 Technology Innovation Hubs (TIHs) have been established in advanced technologies in reputed institutes across the country.
  • The mission is being implemented by the Department of Science & Technology under the Ministry of Science and Technology.

Cyber-Physical System

Here are some key points to understand about cyber-physical systems:

  • Definition: A cyber-physical system is a combination of digital and physical components that work together to achieve a specific objective.
  • Examples: Cyber-physical systems can be found in a wide range of applications, including autonomous vehicles, smart buildings, industrial control systems, and medical devices.
  • Components: These systems typically include sensors, communication networks, computing resources, data analytics, and control mechanisms.
  • Functionality: Cyber-physical systems enable the collection, processing, and sharing of data to support decision-making and control actions in real-time.
  • Interconnectivity: The components of a cyber-physical system are interconnected through a network that allows them to exchange data and work together seamlessly.
  • Applications: Cyber-physical systems have the potential to revolutionize many industries by improving efficiency, productivity, and safety.
