Control & Signal Processing
The vision for the CSP research group is to develop new algorithmic tools and design methodologies for computational life sciences, systems biology and large scale interconnected systems and contribute high quality PhD training in the large scale signal processing and life science areas.
A key research challenge of our group is to develop tools for the design and analysis of very large scale distributed dynamical systems with network connected sensors and actuators. This takes applications in urban transport, power systems, urban and rural water distribution systems, defense and surveillance systems consisting of large swarms of possibly mobile sensors, and many areas of biology, including cell signalling and protein interactions.
NICTA CSP researchers are involved in strongly collaborative inter-disciplinary research activity arising from the emerging convergence of ICT and life sciences. NICTA researches in the more traditional control and signal processing disciplines work closely with university collaborators to address major challenges facing industry and defence sectors - effectively harnessing computing power and networked communications infrastructure to enable real-time control of large distributed dynamical systems such as power grids, water systems, transport and security networks.
