What does ERI do?


Vision

Develop a lab wide capability to support research initiatives exploring distributed embedded wireless sensor technology.

Mission

The ERI is a new research initiative for SNL in the area of intelligent wireless pervasive devices (i.e., smart sensors, compact single board and wearable computers, and wireless technologies). The ERI will explore and incorporate technologies from the areas of distributed /wireless sensors, adaptive/ad hoc wireless networks, and the flexible software/hardware infrastructures needed to support these diverse areas. ERI will support this initiative by creating and maintaining technologies to support the hardware/software requirements of the current/future DP and emerging threat projects. Over FY02 ERI envisions the creation of the phase-1 hardware and software platforms to support wireless communication between the 3 hardware layers consisting of base stations (PCs), pervasive devices, and a select group of wireless sensors.

ERI Scope & Structure

The ERI is structured to enhance collaboration and integration of core technology to assist in the generation of the ERI hardware/software technology base. The umbrella like structure of the ERI bridges across several centers and consists of the following components:
Core Team
Working Group
ERI - Student Program
ERI - Faculty Collaboration Program

Core Technology Research Areas

AI Research
Framework/Infrastructure
Embedded Systems
Smart Sensors
Wireless Technologies
Augmented Cognition
