Embedded and Intelligent Systems Laboratory

The Embedded and Intelligent Systems Research Laboratory (EIS@Essex) in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (CSEE) at the University of Essex carries out research in the areas of Embedded Systems and System-on-Chip design with focus on security, power, performance and reliability, advanced embedded systems and processor architectures targeted for cyber physical systems, automotive/industrial, robotics, image processing, networked and distributed sensor nodes  / Internet of Things and real-time critical systems. Furthermore, it works in the area of Big Data Analytics, computer vision and embedded AI for real world problems and application areas.

The EIS laboratory has state-of-the-art design and prototyping facilities for embedded systems design and system-processing architectures. Funded through a £140k RCIF investment by the University, it houses, amongst other equipment, several very-high-gate-count top-end FPGA boards, many processor architectures, advanced development kits and IOS/Android devices, sensor and actuators to design real-world prototypes. 


We would like to thank the following organisations for supporting our research through funding or in kind support: EPSRC, ESRCTSB/Innovate UKERDF Interreg IVA 2 Seas ProgrammeERDF Interreg IVA Channel ProgrammeNASA JPLESARoll-Royce and Delphi.
