Welcome to Drishti
CPS Foundation: TIH

The Technology Innovation Hub (TIH) falls under the aegis of the national mission on interdisciplinary cyber physical systems and is named IITI DRISHTI CPS Foundation: Driving Innovation through Simulation Hub for Technologies in Interdisciplinary Cyber Physical Systems. The overarching goal of DRISHTI-CPS is to develop an eco-system that will enable knowledge generation through basic and applied research and foster an interactive environment where innovative products can be developed through joint efforts of industry and academia.


To become a pioneering center in simulation, modelling and visualization of cyber physical systems that will bolster Indian manufacturing via development and commercialization of state-of-the-art products and creation of skilled human resource (at all levels from researchers and entrepreneurs) and become a key enabler in catalyzing “Industry 4.0” to realize the vision of “Digital India”.


To develop a seamless platform by synchronizing and integrating various entities, making a fountainhead of knowledge, Skill enhancement, Research, Technology and Product Development, by innovation and commercialization for effecting resource optimization and sustainability.

The TIH will work with the intent to nurture a culture of entrepreneurship not just within the institute but across Central India. There would be a thrust towards skill development, incubating start-ups, R&D activities, industry engagement, and serving the rural and underprivileged populace. While engaged in such activity, the TIH would work towards the important goal of self-sustainability.

Technology Development

One of the core hub activities is aimed towards technology development through various researches. The budget for technology development includes support for R&D projects, prototype development, patenting, and commercialization. It is considered that the budget will comprise of both recurring expenses and non-recurring expenses; however, the actual break-up can vary, based on the sanctioned amount.


The hub activity, Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Start-ups Ecosystem, will cover EIR, start-up incubation, pre-incubation and other entrepreneurship related activities like investors summit, incubation facilities. Budget for the hub activity accounts for the expenses required in the promotion, incubation, operation and development of start-ups and other entrepreneurial ventures in the domain of the CPS.

HRD and Skill Development

Hub activity, HRD & Skill Development, is aimed towards training and development of skilled professionals through fellowships and skill development workshops. Budget for HRD & Skill Development includes fellowship for UG, PG, Doctoral, Faculties and Chair professors, apart from development funds to support UG and PG internships and professional skill development workshops.

Centre of Excellence

A Centre of Excellence (CoE) for System Simulation, Modelling and Visualization will be developed as a part of TIH. The primary focus of the CoE will be translational research, i.e., converting the academic research into industry-oriented technology. The CoE will serve as a common unit for different activities and will facilitate interdisciplinary researches in the field of CPS.

International Collabrations

International collaboration serves as a two-way bridge for exchange of information at international platform. Collaborations will introduce state of the art international practices in the field of CPS in technology development in India and provide a platform for show casing the developed technology. In this activity bilateral technology development will be encouraged.
