Wireless Sensor and Wireless Power Research

JenshanLinThe Radio Frequency Circuits & Systems Research (RFCSR) group is working on wireless non-contact sensor systems using low-power radar to detect vital signs and vibrations from a distance away. In addition, the Group is also working on wireless power systems that can transfer electrical power without wires. These systems use low-power microcontrollers. If you are interested in exploring their applications and learning how to build a wireless sensor or power system, welcome to join us!

Machine Intelligence Lab (MIL)

MILlogoMIL provides a cross-disciplinary synergistic environment dedicated to the study and development of intelligent, autonomous robots. We conduct research in the theory and realization of autonomous mobile agents covering topics such as machine learning, real-time sensor integration (including computer vision, LIDAR, sonar, radar, IMU, etc.), optimization, and control. Applications of MIL research (that have produced functioning robots) include autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), autonomous water surface vehicles (ASVs), autonomous land vehicles (ALVs), and autonomous aerial vehicles (AAVs).

SurfLab := Geometric Algorithms + 3D Graphics + Interactive Simulation

surflab logoOur projects develop and take advantage of the latest advances in Computer Graphics, Geometric Algorithms and Interactive Simulation. We use haptic (force-feedback) devices in interactive surgery simulation, the newest generation low-cost 3D printers to test novel mechanisms and the latest generation graphics cards to support real-time movie generation, ie movie quality at gaming rates. Projects span the gamut between the mathematically sophisticated and open source code development to test new ideas. We support university scholars and senior projects.

Machine Learning & Sensing Lab

MachineLearningSensingThe Machine Learning and Sensing Laboratory develops machine learning methods for autonomously analyzing and understanding sensor data. We investigate and develop machine learning, pattern recognition, computational intelligence, signal processing, and information fusion methods for application to sensing. Applications we have studied include landmine and explosive object detection, automated plant phenotyping, sub-pixel target detection, and underwater scene understanding. We have developed algorithms for ground-penetrating radar, hyperspectral imagery, electromagnetic induction data, synthetic aperture SONAR, and minirhizotron imagery.
