Research areas

Dr. Omprakash Kaiwartya's current research interest focuses on the following three areas in Security in Cyber-Physical Systems for Smart Cities.

  • Internet of Connected Vehicles (IoV): Heterogeneous Network Architecture and Geo-enabling Protocol Development
  • Electronic Vehicles (EV): Charging Management Framework Development
  • IoT use case Implementation: Smart applications of Wireless Sensor Networks

In future, Dr. Omprakash's aim is to establish a research centre for “Security in Cyber-Physical Systems for Smart Cities”. The research centre will host hardware testbed facilities for enabling security in intelligent and sustainable transport systems developments, EV charging infrastructure planning and management and IoT centric use case developments of sensor networks for smart cities. The centre will provide training and research infrastructure for master, and PhD students as well as short term internships to final year undergraduate students.  The research centre will build strong links with industries to bid for national and international innovation funding.
