Cutting-edge computer research receives funding boost
Queen’s University is playing an important role in new research aimed at designing more efficient embedded computer systems – computers that work within a larger computer system. These embedded systems are found everywhere from tablets to automobiles to pipeline control systems.
A new lab opening announced today will help engineers reduce the size, power and cost of their embedded systems products.
“Queen’s University is privileged to be working with 37 other institutions on the $48 million embedded systems research project,” says Steven Liss, Vice-Principal (Research). “This is a wonderful example of the support, both research and administrative, we provide in support of this collaboration and for new and innovative ideas.”
The embedded systems research focusses on providing concepts, methods and tools to build better systems.
Queen’s will be working in an administrative role on behalf of the other institutions involved in the Embedded Systems Canada (emSYSCAN) project, a research effort involving 200 faculty members from across Canada.
The research work will be done at the Real-time Embedded Systems Lab located at the University of Waterloo.
