SenSIP Industry Consortium

The mission of the SenSIP Industry Consortium is to perform use-inspired research and train students in sensor and information systems, digital signal and image processing, wireless communications, networks, and multimedia.

Applications addressed include information processing, software systems, integrated sensing, biomedicine and genomics, defense and homeland security, sustainability and environmental technologies, speech/audio processing and telephony, imaging and video systems, low power realizations, real-time implementations, smart stages and interactive media, and vehicular sensing.

The SenSIP industry consortium is now approved as an NSF funded Industry University Collaborative Research Center (I/UCRC) site. SenSIP wlll work with the Net Centric I/UCRC of Texas with the University of North Texas, University of Texas-Dallas and Southern Methodist University.



The objective of the NSF Sensor Signal and Information Processing (SenSIP) Industry Consortium is to develop a research and education partnership with local and national industry. This partnership will focus on the development of new signal/information processing algorithms, tools, and software for integrated sensor systems. The primary objective will be the development of new methods for extracting, parameterizing , transmitting, and classifying information from heterogeneous sensors and sensor networks.The faculty involved in SenSIP have a track record of funded programs in areas associated with the theoretical aspects of the SenSIP mission and are actively establishing industry collaborations that promote cutting-edge application-driven research in these areas. The SenSIP Industry Consortium has recently become a site of the NSF Net Centric Industry University Collaborative Research Center (I/UCRC) and will work closely with the University of North Texas, SMU, and the University of Texas at Dallas. The theme of the center aligns well with the economic security of the two states involved and of the nation in general. The creation of intellectual property and trained workforce from this program will contribute to several important state initiatives including biomedical, sustainability, defense, and border control. Some specific application-driven problems to be examined include

  • detection and tracking algorithms for sensors
  • source localization with microphone arrays
  • motion detection with camera array sensors
  • algorithms for waveform design for radar and sonar sensors
  • sensor information processing for intrusion and border security
  • signal processing for biological and chemical sensors
  • information and decision networks for sensor arrays
  • acoustic scene characterization
