05/01/2020 - 14:55 It is fairly common knowledge that technology people use daily such as cell phones, laptops, and tablets, could be susceptible to a cyberattack. A lesser known threat is that the power grid, water treatment plants, and other daily-use systems, are also susceptible. CSL and ADSC are working on a project to bolster the defense of such critical systems.
03/27/2020 - 10:11 Evaluation of cybersecurity solutions in critical infrastructure, such as smart power grid systems, is an ongoing problem for many researchers. Finding a solution to this issue was the genesis of the project “Automated Framework for Generating Cyber-physical Range for Smart Grid.”
02/06/2020 - 09:13 ADSC researchers Utku Tefek, Ertem Esiner, and Lin Wei showcased two projects related to security/robustness in legacy cyber-physical systems at the 2019 Techinnovation in Singapore.
01/27/2020 - 08:53 As the global trend to create “smarter” social infrastructures grows, the need for effective privacy-enhancing technology is greater than ever.
11/06/2019 - 09:35 Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) have many uses and are growing in popularity. But because they do not utilize human pilots onboard the craft, they can pose a hazard to humans as well as the environment.
04/24/2019 - 08:45 ADSC researchers are working on a project that looks at developing a device to improve the power grid’s situational awareness and minimize the impact of cyber-attacks, especially as the number of intelligent devices connect to the grid continues to grow.
01/16/2019 - 09:30 As cybersecurity continues to be a worldwide concern, ADSC researchers are working to improve upon and apply a technology that has been proven to be reliable in identifying and analyzing security attacks
Illinois researchers pursue the best of both worlds – top performance and high programmability – under new DARPA project09/28/2018 - 09:15 You might not think of high-performance computing and high programmability as things that go hand in hand—unless you’re ADSC researcher Deming Chen and CSL researcher Wen-mei Hwu.

12/07/2017 - 03:45 Monitoring dynamic factors, such as flight plans, weather, civil events and building model updates, are essential to ensuring UAS operation safety.
08/08/2017 - 09:41 Researchers teamed up with startup Inspirit IoT to develop a low-cost, audio-based security system that can alert a central command center when trouble breaks out.
07/12/2017 - 10:09 The research promotes securing the power grid using natural timestamps in the power grid’s frequency fluctuations sensed from the powerline electromagnetic radiation (EMR).
06/08/2017 - 05:42 In hopes of reducing the frustration of lines, ADSC researchers are partnering with Sentosa, an amusement resort off Singapore’s southern coast, to dramatically decrease the time guests spend waiting for shuttle busses.
04/24/2017 - 04:52 The tool allows security analysts to make practical and informed decisions about the security of their critical infrastructure system, such as a smart power grid.
03/07/2017 - 04:04 By using new technology developed by ADSC and a Singapore air-conditioning company, companies could save thousands of dollars per month on their energy bills.
02/23/2017 - 08:42 ADSC researchers are developing technology that can build virtual 3D replicas out of moving 2D images, even when the images contain similar textures and sizes.
