Engineering | SENSIP


The ASU Sensor Signal and Information Processing (SenSIP) Center houses the research activities of several faculty members. SenSIP research encompasses the following focus areas:

  • Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
  • Agile Sensing Research
  • Digital Communications
  • Information Networks
  • Multimedia Networks
  • Image and Video Processing
  • Java Systems
  • Biomedical Signal Processing
  • Speech and Audio Processing

Over the past seven years, SenSIP faculty members have received prestigious NSF CAREER and ONR YIP awards. Electrical engineering graduate students are key contributors to the Center’s research, and several doctoral graduates now hold prestigious faculty and research positions at institutions such as the University of Texas, Polytechnic University of New York, MIT Lincoln Laboratory and IBM Research. SenSIP’s visibility has been enhanced by its working relationship with Raytheon on sensing applications, its success in two MURI awards, its collaboration with ASU’s Arts, Media and Engineering (AME) program and its partnership in NIH activities. Research sponsors of the Center include DARPA, AFOSR, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the National Science Foundation (NSF), General Dynamics, Motorola Inc., Intel Corporation, and Seagate Technologies. The group has founded an industry consortium with research activities in sensor signal processing, communications, DSP, and information networks.
