SCU Internet of Things Research Lab

The Internet of Things Research Lab is directed by Dr. Behnam Dezfouli and is dedicated to the research and development of IoT technologies and applications.

SCU Internet of Things

The ever-increasing importance of IoT is supported by increase in the number of connected devices, the use of wireless communication for networking, advances in low-power mobile computation, machine learning and data analytics, and sensing technologies on small devices. 

We focus on application domains such as medical monitoring, industrial process control and automation, environmental monitoring, smart agriculture, energy saving mechanisms, and structural health monitoring, just to mention a few. Due to the significant impact of these applications on quality of life and sustainable development, our goal is to identify the design and development challenges of Internet of Things/Cyber-Physical Systems/Wireless Sensor Networks from the networking, processing, and security point of views.
