Abstract: This talk will present our recent research on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT), covering on two closely related research concepts originating from batteries. The first concept involves the traditional use of batteries as power supplies. For this, this talk will introduce a set of relaxation-assisted battery management solutions to enhance the performance of mobile device batteries by allowing them to rest when possible. The second research theme explores a novel concept of utilizing batteries as sensors and actuators to improve system monitoring and control. We will showcase this through a battery-enabled cybersecurity management system for vehicles and discuss its broader applications across various platforms, including satellites and industrial control systems. The talk will conclude by highlighting several future research directions.
