Embedded and Open Systems
Our researchers develop advanced embedded processors that enable the varied sensor systems, communication systems, and decision support tools designed by staff from across the Laboratory. We collaborate early in the development stage so that signal, image, and data processing algorithms and hardware are integrated effectively and operate seamlessly within the systems. Because we support the development of diverse systems, our staff has broad technical expertise in areas such as processor hardware, software engineering, signal and data processing, and artificial intelligence. Our hardware has facilitated record-breaking processing rates, allowing systems to deliver time-critical information to users. We work with researchers from universities, other laboratories, and industry to advance the state of the art in embedded computing by establishing standards for open system architectures and pioneering very efficient libraries for signal and data processing applications.
