Embedded Intelligent Systems Laboratory
at Yonsei University
연세대학교 지능형임베디드시스템 연구실
Welcome to the Embedded Intelligent Systems Laboratory at the School of Integrated Technology, Yonsei University!
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 embedded/mobile computing systems, sensing-based context recognition systems, and ambient intelligent mobile 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.
[Note: We currently have no PhD student openings for 2020 (spring and fall), but we are still looking for MS students and Postdocs interested in our group. For students that wish to pursue a PhD, please check back for Spring 2021 admissions in late 2020.]
