Into the lab: Computer Science and Software Engineering

Alvin Lim, associate professor of computer science and software engineering, is developing a mobile system that will provide accurate GPS positioning and navigational information for mobile devices in environments that currently disrupt data transfer, such as indoors, urban canyons and under tree canopies. Other positioning systems require sophisticated hardware that is not cost-effective, or use…




Into the Lab: Computer Science and Software Engineering

Weikuan Yu, associate professor of computer science and software engineering, is increasing the efficiency of computer systems that process big data. From international information technology corporations to the internet search engines we routinely use, Yu’s work has the potential to accelerate the amount of data processed at one time, with one software product already released…
