NSF is offering a webinar at 12 pm EDT on June 13, 2018 about the Smart and Autonomous Systems program, which is in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Directorate, Division of Intelligent Instelligent Systems (IIS). NSF's program synopsis states that, "The Smart and Autonomous Systems (S&AS) program focuses on Intelligent Physical Systems (IPS) that are capable of robust, long-term autonomy requiring minimal or no human operator intervention in the face of uncertain, unanticipated, and dynamically changing situations. IPS are systems that combine perception, cognition, communication, and actuation to operate in the physical world. Examples include, but are not limited to, robotic platforms, self-driving vehicles, underwater exploration vehicles, and smart grids. To foster such intelligent systems, the S&AS program supports research in four main aspects of IPS: cognizant, taskable, adaptive, and ethical"
This description is very broad, so it's important to understand what topics align with the interests of this program. This webinar is a good first step to determining if your project idea might be a good fit.
