Project

Functional Integration for Embedded Intelligence

Groups

This project pushes our work on the miniaturization of low-power radios and sensors for embedded intelligence into very small form factors that will enable unobtrusive wireless sensor packages to be leveraged in many (e.g., wearable, medical) applications. In addition, the project addresses applications that use a wireless agent platform running on embedded Java processors connected to the same low-power radios; this continues work done by the National Microelectronics Research Centre (NMRC) at University College Cork. The research capitalizes upon the Media Lab, Media Lab Europe, and NMRC's shared interest in emergent behavior arising from the interaction of software agents.
