Communications and Control

Communications and control encompasses a broad area of research involving modern technological systems, with applications ranging from the Internet and information technology systems to manufacturing and transportation systems to robotics.

Two current major projects in place are the use of sparse representation for automatic human face recognition and an NSF-sponsored IGERT effort whereby 30 to 40 engineering and neuroscience students are being cross-trained to better facilitate and expand neuroengineering research.
