SMART ENVIRONMENTS AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Our research activities include a focus on the development of smart environments and infrastructure by combining expertise at Queen’s in the areas of machine learning, big data analytics, the Internet of Things, as well as intelligent sensors and actuators
HUMAN SENSING AND ASSISTIVE DEVICES
Our research efforts combine of expertise from human biomechanics, mechanical systems design, control and robotics, together with machine learning, to decode user intent with the specific goal of developing novel practical wearable and other assistive technologies.
INTELLIGENT MOBILE SYSTEMS
Mobile robots and autonomous vehicles have recently grown from a few specialized devices, developed for select industrial or niche market applications, to household items. Spanning the engineering disciplines, we are partnering with industry to apply our expertise in robotics, mechatronics, and machine intelligence to important Canadian applications.
One of the top universities in Canada, Queen’s has a long history of discovery and innovation that has shaped our knowledge and helped to address some of the world’s deepest mysteries and most pressing questions, including issues of environmental protection, health care, and the development of advanced technologies.
For more than 175 years, Queen’s has brought together and built synergies among leading researchers, scholars and innovators making a real and measured impact.
Applied Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
Our experts in this domain focus on research and the application of algorithms and techniques that support intelligent decision making and interactions. Specific Institute expertise include deep learning, natural language processing, ambient computing, and computer vision.
Intelligent Sensors and Actuators
Researchers with expertise in Intelligent Sensors and Actuators focus on the creation and seamless integration of sensors and actuators into intelligent human-machine systems that understand and interact with the world around us.
Robotics, Mechatronics and Autonomous Systems
Robotics is how AI interacts with the world. Our researchers design new mechatronic devices, robotic machines, and autonomous systems that have applications from intelligent manufacturing, modern transportation, mining, construction, and security to household automation, healthcare, and universal accessibility.
Researchers who work on Human-Machine Systems focus on understanding and enhancing the naturally complex interactions between humans and machines by designing and developing interfaces that optimize learning, performance, and task execution through the use of intelligent and adaptive technologies.
