• NITRD Coordination Areas

    The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's member agencies coordinate their NITRD research activities and plans by Program Component Areas (PCAs) or program focus areas. For each PCA, agency representatives meet in an Interagency Working Group (IWG) to exchange information and collaborate on research plans and activities such as testbeds, workshops, and cooperative solicitations.

  • Cyber Physical Systems (CPS)

    The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D). This includes identifying and integrating requirements, conducting joint program planning, and developing joint strategies for the CPS R&D programs conducted by agency members of the NITRD Subcommittee.

Overview

Cyber-physical systems—smart systems that have cyber technologies, both hardware and software, deeply embedded in and interacting with physical components, sensing and changing the state of the real world—represent a core opportunity area and source of competitive advantage for the U.S. innovation economy in the 21st century. (Winning the Future with Science and Technology for 21st Century Smart Systems, CPS OSTP Response, 4-7-2011)


The term cyber-physical systems (CPS) refers to a generation of systems with integrated computational and physical capabilities that can interact with humans through many new modalities. The ability to interact with, and expand the capabilities of, the physical world through computation, communication, and control is a key enabler for future technology developments. Opportunities and research challenges include the design and development of next-generation airplanes and space vehicles, hybrid gas-electric vehicles, fully autonomous urban driving, and prostheses that allow brain signals to control physical objects. (From Cyber Physical Systems - IoCT-Part3-02)


The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D). This includes identifying and integrating requirements, conducting joint program planning, and developing joint strategies for the CPS R&D programs conducted by agency members of the NITRD Subcommittee. CPS includes fundamental research, applied R&D, technology development and engineering, demonstrations, testing and evaluation, technology transfer, and education and training; and "agencies" refers to Federal departments, agencies, directorates, foundations, institutes, and other organizational entities.

Smart Cities and Communities (SCC) Task Force

The Smart Cities and Communities Task Force is a body under the NITRD Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Interagency Working Group (IWG). The CPS IWG’s purpose is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for CPS R&D across the Federal government. This includes identifying and integrating requirements, facilitating joint program planning, and developing joint strategies for the CPS R&D programs conducted by agency members of the NITRD Subcommittee and CPS IWG. Specifically, the Smart Cities and Communities Task Force coordinates Federal action and partnerships with academia, industry, local cities and communities, and other government entities to enable cities/communities of all types in accessing networking and information technologies and services.

To learn more about the Smart Cities and Communities (SCC) Task Force please visit SCC home page.


Federal Smart Cities and Communities Programs Resource Guide

Federal Smart Cities and Communities Programs Resource Guide Federal Smart Cities and Communities Programs Resource Guide

The Federal Smart Cities and Communities Task Force created the “Federal Smart Cities and Communities Programs Resource Guide” to facilitate collaboration and coordination between Smart Cities and Communities (SCC) Task Force member agencies, academia, industry, local cities and communities, and other government entities. The Resource Guide describes Federally-funded research and development (R&D) programs in smart cities and communities. These R&D programs seek to embed new digital technologies into city/community infrastructure, systems, and services.

Smart and Connected Communities Framework

This framework is to help coordinate Federal agency investments and outside collaborations that will guide foundational research and accelerate the transition into scalable and replicable Smart City approaches. The NITRD Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) Interagency Working Group (IWG) developed this framework of Federal Smart Cities activities to include the entire pipeline from research and development to deployment of new tech-driven approaches in cities; and is working to include agency-specific goals and is beginning to plan next steps for Federal action. We welcome contributors to this framework document even if you are not NITRD member agency. This is not just for research agencies – this framework will support ongoing coordination across agencies advancing agency mission goals, provide opportunities to leverage IT in cities and communities, and engage stakeholders to deploy technologies in cities to meet pressing challenges.
