The powerful capabilities enabled by electrical engineering are being drawn pervasively into the real world. From personal robots to smart cities, co-operating meaningfully and safely with complex real-world processes requires modeling, perceiving, rationalizing and controlling those processes. This involves scientific and behavioral understanding, sensing technologies, computing technologies, formal-analysis methods, and control algorithms.
Our research integrates these paradigms to establish new interdisciplinary fundamentals and envision new classes of applications. With the potential of cyberphysical systems to have deep and broad impacts on our lives, a confluence of technologies and theories must be developed that can serve as a platform for blending the cyber and physical worlds extensively, seamlessly, meaningfully. At Princeton, this is being done by combining mathematical foundations, emerging sensing and communication technologies, and integrated systems, and the deploying these in real-world scenarios.
