Human-robot Interaction From Real Steel to reality the DISCOVER lab is exploring not only how to make cyber physical systems work more reliably but also how they can learn to interact with their human collaborators.
Human-robot Interaction
Electromagnetic Radiation and Human Health The effect of electromagnetic radiation on human health is the subject of debate, especially as it pertains to portable wireless devices. Notre Dame researchers are studying ways to improve device performance without increasing radiation levels.
Electromagnetic Radiation and Human Health
Exploring the Physical Limits to Computation Researchers in the Center for Nano Science and Technology are laying the groundwork for smaller, faster, and more efficient electronic devices by exploring energy dissipation in nanoscale electron devices and discovering new ways to represent information and perform computation.
Exploring the Physical Limits to Computation
Low Energy Systems Technology LEAST, which is led by the University of Notre Dame with nine partner universities, explores new concepts for energy-efficient devices to reduce power in electronic systems.
Low Energy Systems Technology
Enhancing the Capabilities of Cyber-Physical Systems Every area of modern life, from mundane household applications to concerns of national security or issues of human health, is affected by cyber-physical systems.
Enhancing the Capabilities of Cyber-Physical Systems
