Neurosignals Lab

The human brain is one of the most fascinating systems in nature and has always stimulated the curiosity and the effort of human beings for understanding ourself and neuro-motor pathologies. Communications and synchronization between different brain regions and between brain and muscles are the key mechanisms for it to accomplish any kind of function, from sleep to play sports and even perform music. Through cross-frequency brain coupling quantification, cortico-muscular coherence analysis and machine learning techniques is possible to develop new effective treatments in collaboration with medical doctors, such as Brain-Computer Interfaces for motor rehabilitation

Underwater Lab

Ever since the beginning of time, ocean life and the underwater world have fascinated humankind's imagination. From Greek mythology to Jules Verne's fantastic journey through the depths of sea, the huge mass of water covering two thirds of our globe has attracted countless people and inspired fantasies and stories. Today's technology is bringing us ever closer to this world, making it reveal its wonders. This technology is actively studied in our lab on underwater communications and networking, where solutions for subsea exploration, seismic activities, oil and gas, and marine life are designed, evaluated, and tested at sea

IoT Lab

The Internet-of-Things (IoT) is one of the next frontiers of information technologies which, with billions of nodes distributed everywhere, promises to change our lives forever. The fascinating paradigms of e-health, virtual and augmented reality, everything-connected devices, will have a tremendous impact on our everyday life. Protocols and solutions towards this vision will be designed, implemented, and tested in the new IoT lab, to be established before the end of the year 2018
