We are expanding the boundaries of the following core technologies:

  • Artificial Olfactory & Gustatory Sensing Technologies - Simulates smell & taste sensing abilities of human and animal systems.

  • Computer Vision - Simulates the object recognition, analysis, and comprehension capabilities of the human vision system.

  • Neural Networks - An information-processing paradigm that can learn from its own errors or be trained like a human being.

  • Fuzzy Logic - Information technology that allows computers to understand and communicate using linguistic variables such as "too much,"  "too little,"  "more,"  and "less."

  • Decision Support System - A computer program that combines mathematical/statistical models and information to support the decision-making process.

  • Non-contact Sensing Techniques - Sensors/techniques based on segments of the electro-magnetic spectrum and other sensing methods.

  • Integrated Intelligent System - Integration of sensing techniques with material handling systems, signal acquisition, signal processing and analysis, and intelligent pattern recognition methods for real-world application in biological systems.
