Intelligent Systems Engineering

The scope of the Intelligent Systems Engineering Research Group's activities include:
  • Advanced Control Systems - Smart structures, Adaptive control;
  • Computer Vision - Nonlinear Image Processing, Video Motion Detection & Tracking;
  • Embedded Systems - Reconfigurable Computing, System-on-chip multiprocessor networks;
  • Robotics - Autonomous vehicles, Intelligent agents;

The main areas of research activity are divided across three overlapping research programs:

The three programmes benefit from a significant level of synergy derived from overlapping research activities. Much of the control, computer vision, and embedded systems technology developed for the vibration cancellation and the video imaging applications are directly transferrable to the autonomous vehicle programme.

These programmes are conducted primarily by the Intelligent Systems Research Group members, either solely or in partnerships with other academic and industry research groups.

The research programmes are allied to the following industry sectors:

  • Defence Systems
  • Offshore Oil & Gas
  • Security and Surveillance
