연세대학교 지능형임베디드시스템 연구실

Welcome to the Embedded Intelligent Systems Laboratory at the School of Integrated Technology, Yonsei University!

연세대학교 공과대학 글로벌융합공학부 지능형임베디드시스템 연구실 방문을 환영합니다!

We are interested in a broad range of research topics within the domain of mobile and embedded computing systems, cyber physical systems, intelligent computing and human-computer interaction. Overall, we are interested in how we can design various forms of computing systems in a human-centered manner.

The basis of our research is in identifying interesting system-level requirements for real-world computing applications, and spans to designing hardware/software prototypes for addressing challenging application tasks. Specifically, our lab focuses on research topics such as low-power mobile and embedded computing systems, sensing-based context recognition systems, and ambient intelligent sensing system design for applications such as healthcare, transportation or buildings.

We are always on the search for devoted students to join our research group. If you are interested in building smart embedded systems and performing research in this domain, please send us (anyone in the lab) an email! Note that we have limited spaces for students, so make sure that you are willing to work hard and have strong programming skills (C, Java, Python or whatever language you like the best) before contacting us.

For Fall 2021 and Spring 2022, we plan to admit up to 3-4 new M.S. or Ph.D. students to join our team. Do not hesitate to contact any member of our lab if you are interested in joining us.
