The goal of the Intelligent Systems Laboratory (ISL) is to advance research and teaching in smart, adaptive, and predictive system areas at Sonoma State. We define an intelligent system as: (i) Being equipped with sensors and computing resources to read, analyze and interpret sensor input (smart), (ii) being able to use sensor data to adapt functions to achieve optimum outcomes (adaptive), and (iii) being able to predict future outcomes (predictive). Specifically, the lab will advance research and training in sensors, embedded systems, and sensor data analysis areas. Located in Engineering Complex 2002, the lab has five workstations with computers, robotic arms, robotic car-kits, test and measurement equipment, embedded system boards, data acquisition boards, electrical tools and supplies, and a controlled sensor test set-up.

Our research focuses on developing smart sensing systems for health and other applications.
