ISIS faculty member implementing $6 million NSF grant to make car systems smarter

Jonathan Sprinkle, a computer science professor at Vanderbilt University, is among seven principal investigators using a $6 million grant from the National Science Foundation to explore a new way to engineer cyber-physical systems (CPS).

Examples of CPSs—which involve algorithms, networks and physical components—include smart power grids, implantable medical devices and transportation technology such as self-driving cars, which are the focus of the five-year, multi-institutional project.

Sprinkle’s role will be to find ways to enhance the capabilities of existing sensors and on-board computers currently installed in many vehicles.
