Posters and demos were presented at the SRC CogniSense Annual Review in Atlanta. The demo received an award.
Congratulations, Minghui Zhao, Yanchen Liu, and the rest of the group!
About CogniSense: The Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded a $28 million, five-year grant to a team of 20 researchers from 12 universities to establish a new research center on cognitive multispectral sensors (CogniSense). This center is funded by the SRC-administrated Joint University Microelectronics Program 2.0, or JUMP 2.0, and is led by GeorgiaTech.
The vision for CogniSense is to design a new type of intelligent sensors that dynamically adapt to “what is being sensed” and “how sensed signals are processed” according to the real-time changes in the environment. Cognitive multispectral sensors directly generate trustworthy insights from wideband multi-modal analog signals using closed-loop feedback control of the sensor hardware and feature extraction algorithms that enable energy-efficient sensing-to-action.
Professor Xiaofan (Fred) Jiang leads the effort on system prototyping, with the aim to design, construct, and evaluate drone-based sense-to-action prototype platforms enabled by CogniSense. Jiang will also lead the Prototype Management Board together with Buckwalter (UC Santa Barbara) to oversee prototyping activities across the center.
