Abstract: This talk will introduce our recent research on CPS/IoT, covering three different but closely coupled research concepts originated from batteries, i.e., relaxation-assisted battery management, batteries as sensors/actuators, and cross-domain invariants. We will first introduce R-AWARE, a recovery period-assisted battery health management solution that improves battery health via relaxation-aware scheduling of battery (dis)charging and monitoring. R-AWARE optimizes battery health by scheduling system operation, inspiring the research in the reverse direction, i.e., exploiting batteries as sensors/actuators to optimize system operation. We will introduce our research on exploring this concept to secure vehicular systems. Lastly, we will generalize the research theme of batteries as sensors/actuators to a novel concept called cross-domain invariants, and demonstrate its application to advance trustworthy manufacturing.
