About EMCLab

Mobile computing has led to paradigm shifts in user behavior, application semantics, and device features. However, existing “hasty solutions” that borrow legacy designs directly from conventional operating systems cannot be applied seamlessly to mobile systems, particularly in conjunction with cloud computing. We conduct scientific and engineering research that would affect the future designs of mobile systems in the interconnection of smartphones, wearables, and the cloud. To give consideration to both academic value and practical use, we are devoted to not only original design concepts and system implementations but also theoretical derivation and analysis. Our research focuses include cloud-based energy saving services, user-centric mobile systems, self-powered intermittent IoT Systems, and embedded deep learning.
