Embedded System Group (ESL)

Research group The research environment covers activities within electrical and system engineering, applied physics, and biomedical engineering.

The research in the media field also includes media use, speech behavior, media experience and interaction, for example, the importance of individual choice for media use. In embedded systems we develop new wireless sensor networks for measurements in various environments, such as data collection of animal behavior (digital zoo). Within control engineering and robotics the research is focused on mathematical models for real systems, ranging from hydraulic cranes to the fluid flow in the human brain and the use of these models for reading, visualization, prediction and control of important variables in these systems. Research in biomedical engineering aims to develop ideas for new products that can benefit the health care and the quality of people receiving care. Examples are resonant sensors for diagnostics and characterization of disease in soft tissue. Within the research environment we also perform research in measurement technology, mechanics and optical systems.
