In this note we consider the following problem. Suppose a set of sensors is jointly trying to estimate a process. One sensor takes a measurement at every time step and the measurements are then exchanged among all the sensors. What is the sensor schedule that results in the minimum error covariance? We describe a stochastic sensor selection strategy that is(More)
This paper reports the production of a cellulase-free and alkali-stable xylanase in high titre from a newly isolated Bacillus pumilus SV-85S using cheap and easily available agro-residue wheat bran. Optimization of fermentation conditions enhanced the enzyme production to 2995.20 ± 200.00 IU/ml, which was 9.91-fold higher than the activity under unoptimized(More)
— In this paper, we consider the problem of active sensing using mobile nodes as a sensor network to estimate the state of a dynamic target. We propose a gradient-search-based decentralized algorithm that demonstrates the benefits of distributed sensing. We then examine the task of tracking multiple targets, and address it via a simple extension to our(More)
This article provides a survey on state estimation (SE) in electric power grids and examines the impact on SE of the technological changes being proposed as a part of the smart grid development. Although SE at the transmission level has a long history, further research and development of innovative SE schemes, including those for distribution systems, are(More)
— This work proposes a novel metric to characterize the resilience of stochastic cyber-physical systems to attacks and faults. We consider a single-input single-output plant regulated by a control law based on the estimate of a Kalman filter. We allow for the presence of an attacker able to hijack and replace the control signal. The objective of the(More)
This paper focuses on the design phase of the system lifecycle and proposes a passivity-based approach to decouple system stability from cyber timing uncertainties. ABSTRACT | System integration is the elephant in the china store of large-scale cyber–physical system (CPS) design. It would be hard to find any other technology that is more under-valued(More)
We examine two special cases of the problem of optimal Linear Quadratic Gaussian control of a system whose state is being measured by sensors that communicate with the controller over packet-dropping links. We pose the problem as an information transmission problem. Using a separation principle, we decompose the problem into a standard LQR state-feedback(More)
T-cell protein tyrosine phosphatase gives rise to two splice isoforms: TC48, which is localized to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and TC45, a nuclear protein. The present study was undertaken to identify proteins that are involved in targeting TC48 to the ER. We identified two TC48-interacting proteins, p25 and p23, from a yeast two-hybrid screen. p23 and(More)
