Configurable Computing & Embedded Systems
The objective of this program is to research and develop a Smart City infrastructure for the Atlanta area, with a focus on configurable hardware as a computational platform. Configurable (or reconfigurable) computing combines high-performance hardware with the flexibility of software. This project will explore the use of configurable hardware to assist in areas such as high-performance computing, security and trust, and heterogenous component interfacing. We will also research real-time data analytics and display to provide a framework for better understanding urban environments and human interaction.
