Expertise of the Department Cyber-Physical Systems of Institute of Information and Communication Technologies-Bulgarian Academy of Sciences is research and development of innovative intelligent ICT for control of mobile robots and embedded systems and educational robotics. The methods of tele-control of cyber-physical systems, by voice, gestures and user interface are being studied. The department is also conducting research in the Environmental Modeling, Fire Behavior Modeling and Web-GIS decision support tools development.
Currently Department Cyber-Physical Systems of IICT-BAS is a project coordinator of EC project №-2020-1-BG01-KA202-079200, "Network of IcT Robo Clubs" ERASMUS +, Key action 2, Vocational education and training http://nitroclubs.eu and BNSF project № KP-06-M27/1, "Research and development of innovative, intelligent information and communication technologies for control of service robots"
Resently the Department has become a member of the DIH² Network (Digital Inovation Hub for Agile Robotics)
