The Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) Laboratory's overarching mission is to propose novel sensing paradigms to transform raw sensed heterogeneous data into valuable information (by giving semantic meaning to the collected data) and, finally, into knowledge through information fusion and integration. These paradigms will apply to those distributed systems that need to timely react to sensor information with an effective action such as cyber-physical systems, which feature a tight combination of, and coordination between, the system’s computational and physical elements. The significance of the research is to leverage the acquired knowledge to broaden the potential of cyber-physical systems in several dimensions, including: augmentation of human capabilities, understanding of human activities, coordination of heterogeneous (infrared) cameras, operation in dangerous or inaccessible environments, and efficiency.

Research conducted at the Information, Networks, and Signal Processing Research (INSPIRE) Lab provides a fundamental mathematical understanding of and theoretically optimal, computationally efficient, and algorithmically robust solutions for some of the most pressing problems arising in information processing—an umbrella term that subsumes mathematical signal processing, high-dimensional statistics and machine learning—and networked systems, such as (online) social networks, wireless sensor networks, communication networks, multiagent systems, and brain networks.

Using rigorous statistical concepts in computer vision, we look to fundamental problems which have been not yet completely solved. We introduced the mean shift algorithm, a nonparametric clustering in vector spaces. Beside segmentation and tracking of objects, we also generalized it to non-vector spaces, based on results from group theory. We developed a semi-supervised kernel clustering algorithm which exceeds other results, even without knowing the number of clusters.
Using linearization of nonlinear problems, to which almost all the computer vision problems belong, we described a new errors-in-variables, robust regression algorithm without user defined parameters.

Tele-rehabilitation is the provision of therapy at a distance. To realize its full potential, it needs better computing and communication technology and well as better prepared medical professionals.
The Tele-rehabilitation Institute mission is three-fold, in areas of Research, Clinical Development and Education:
• Research - to develop highly innovative technology that allows fun and efficacious therapy to occur in the home. This alleviates the need to go to clinics, while therapists remotely monitor and adjust your home treatment;
• Clinical Development - to measure the efficacy and improve the new systems based on patient clinical use in a controlled and safe environment;
• Education - to form the new generation of therapists that understand and fully exploit the capabilities of the new Tele-rehabilitation therapy.
