Biomedical, Biometrics & BIO-Inspired Electronics
The Biomedical, Biometrics, & Bio-inspired Electronics research priority has three distinct groupings associated with it:
- Biomedical Electronics
- Bio-inspired Electronics
The Biomedical Electronics research activity is fully embraced by the Bioelectronics Research Cluster at the NCBES led by Prof. Gearóid Ó Laighin.
The Biometrics research activity is currently associated with the application of Biometrics in Consumer Electronic devices with a particular focus on face recognition in digital imaging. Dr. Peter Corcoran leads this activity under the auspices of the Consumer Electronics Research Group.
The Bio-inspired Electronics research activity is focussed on using biological evolution mechanisms to derive novel reconfigurable electronic and computational systems
Dr. Fearghal Morgan leads this activity under the auspics of the Bio-inspired Electronics & Reconfigurable Computing (BIRC) research group
The Bio-Inspired Electronics and Reconfigurable Computing (BIRC) Research group has two major strands:
Using biological evolution mechanisms to derive novel reconfigurable electronic and computational systems
Developing scalable reconfigurable hardware platforms for OS based computing.Embedded systems applications using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
