Embedded Systems

Embedded systems play a critical role in the design and implementation of practical real-world robotics and intelligent applications. The field of embedded systems focuses on how to develop fast, efficient, small, secure, reliable, and self-adaptive computing systems, covering both the hardware as well as the software aspects of the systems.

Current research projects led by the members of this group include:

  • Secure computer architectures
  • Reconfigurable computing 
  • Application and domain-specific processors
  • Laboratories-on-a-Chip based on microfluidic technologies
  • Real-time operating systems
  • Sensor networks and distributed systems
