October 11, 2022

EBTIC, C2PS, RIC-2D and KU-CARS Line Up Technology Innovations for Region’s Top National and Cybersecurity Officials, Buyers and Supply Chain Stakeholders


Khalifa University of Science and Technology today announced four of its research centers will showcase 10 research projects and a startup at the International Exhibition for National Security and Resilience (ISNR) Abu Dhabi 2022. 


Organized by Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company from 10-12 October, ISNR Abu Dhabi 2022 is the region’s most trusted platform for bringing together national and cyber security officials, buyers and supply chain stakeholders, to showcase innovation and influence future projects. Khalifa University will present projects from four research centers – the Emirates ICT Innovation Center (EBTIC), Center for Cyber Physical Systems (C2PS), Research and Innovation Center for Graphene and 2D Materials (RIC-2D) and the Khalifa University Center for Autonomous Robotics Systems (KU-CARS). 


Dr. Arif Sultan Al Hammadi, Executive Vice-President, Khalifa University said: “Khalifa University’s research centers will present some of their latest technology innovations at ISNR Abu Dhabi 2022, an event that attracts leading stakeholders in national security, cyber security, policing and law enforcement, critical infrastructure protection and commercial security. Our research outcomes will have direct impact on some of the challenges posed by the industry, and we believe this event will help facilitate our interaction with top industry leaders, enabling translating of these technologies into workable solutions for the benefit of the community at large.” 


EBTIC will present projects on data protection and anonymization to reduce or eliminate the risk of non-compliance, and Wi-Fi Sensing for Emergency and Security Services, while C2PS will showcase three projects, including two collaboration projects with Abu Dhabi’s Technology Innovation Institute (TII). They are “Making Machine Learning-based security controls resistant to attacks’, and ‘Zero trust-based system for UAVs’ remote identification. The third project titled ML-based Fitness-for-Duty evaluation for risk management in critical infrastructures is a collaboration project with the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). 


At the same time, Khalifa University’s RIC-2D booth will showcase the impact of Graphene & 2D materials in the areas of light-weighting (swapping traditionally-used materials for lighter materials), water and energy.


KU-CARS will present four projects in total. Two projects include robots for low visibility surveillance, as well as unmanned aerial and marine vehicles surveillance in an environment without global navigation satellite system (GNSS). Two more projects – Intelligent systems for automated threat items detection in X-ray baggage screening and Computer vision for underwater video analytics for inspection and surveillance – will also be showcased at the Khalifa University KU-CARS stand, in addition to the Droneleaf startup.
