Current Research Opportunities:

 
1. Prof. Dario Pompili
Project:  
Cyber-Physical Systems Laboratory, directed by Prof. Dario Pompili is looking for students proficient in C++ programming for projects in the area of distributed computing.   
 
 
This position will be paid hourly. Interested students should send their updated CV to cpslab.rutgers@gmail.com along with any information about the projects executed so far (e.g., via GitHub repository).
Status:  Available
 
 
 
2. Prof. Dario Pompili
Project:
The focus of this project is to implement an Android application for mobile grid computing. The expected role of candidates is to collect real-time data from different Android devices, and process and visualize them. A picture below is the sample application for the final product.
