Our Philosophy

The future of managing cities depends on developing systems that can deal with the computational demands of expanding digitized data and related advanced software solutions. MCRLab research focusses on the development, testing and deployment of algorithms, methods, and tools to enable city personnel, citizens, and policy makers to interact with the ubiquitous computing infrastructure of future smart cities.

Data Analytics

Adapt and expand knowledge extraction, data mining techniques and tools to fully exploit the content of soft/hard sensors and help fuse the generated data and information.

Visual Analytics

Design, implement and test immersive multimedia environments for multimodal cyber-physical interactions and data visualization.

Seemless Interactions

Design and develop representations for effortless, anytime, anywhere human-machine interactions and communication.

Quality of Experience

Develop an advanced, integrated and flexible Quality-of-Experience model for the interaction between the citizen and technologies within a smart city.

Security and Privacy

Develop multisensory biometric authentication methods to enhance access control and reduce security breaches.

Cyber Phisycal Systems

Develop Cyber-physical Platforms to support the integration of various system components.
