Research conducted at CYPHYNETS pertains to Systems Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Robotics. The overall aim is the development of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) for welfare, environment and sustainable development. One of the main research thrusts is control, estimation and optimization of water resources in Pakistan. The other major research thrust is theoretical and experimental research in various areas of robotics. The lab is self-sufficient to develop its own robot platforms including mechanical design, mechatronics, control, perception, software and algorithms. The focus is on developing unmanned ground vehicles for humanitarian applications such as landmine clearance and agriculture, in line with the lab’s goal of developing cyber-physical systems for development.
