In cyber-physical systems, malicious and resourceful attackers could penetrate a system through cyber means and cause significant physical damage. Consequently, early detection of such attacks becomes integral towards making these systems resilient to attacks. To achieve this objective, intrusion detection systems (IDS) that are able to detect malicious(More)
In a smart city, real-time traffic sensors may be deployed for various applications, such as route planning. Unfortunately, sensors are prone to failures, which result in erroneous traffic data. Erroneous data can adversely affect applications such as route planning, and can cause increased travel time. To minimize the impact of sensor failures, we must(More)
Cyber-physical systems (CPS), such as autonomous vehicles crossing an intersection, are vulnerable to cyber-attacks and their safety-critical nature makes them a target for malicious adversaries. This paper studies the problem of supervisory control of autonomous intersections in the presence of sensor attacks. Sensor attacks are performed when an adversary(More)
Recent experimental studies have shown that traffic management systems are vulnerable to cyber-attacks on sensor data. This paper studies the vulnerability of fixedtime control of signalized intersections when sensors measuring traffic flow information are compromised and perturbed by an adversary. The problems are formulated by considering three malicious(More)
Reliable operation of electrical power systems in the presence of multiple critical N − k contingencies is an important challenge for the system operators. Identifying all the possible N − k critical contingencies to design effective mitigation strategies is computationally infeasible due to the combinatorial explosion of the search space. This paper(More)
Smart performance evaluation of Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) is an essential part of their effective governance task. This paper focuses on benchmarking twenty one districts of the Greater Tehran Electricity Distribution Company (GTEDC) using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Three methods are employed, namely: CCR (Charnes, Cooper, and Rhodes), SBM(More)
