Florida Atlantic University’s Institute for Sensing and Embedded Network Systems Engineering (I-SENSE) has received a $339,984 grant from the National Science Foundation for a “Research Experiences for Undergraduates” (REU) program. Focused on sensing and smart systems, FAU’s REU site is designed to engage high-potential undergraduates in meaningful research activities in order to encourage their pursuit of graduate study in STEM (science-technology-engineering-math) disciplines, with an emphasis on interdiSsciplinary career paths. Closely related to the Internet of Things, smart systems represent an emerging class of distributed systems that provide real-time awareness of conditions, trends, and patterns to support improved decision-making, and often, automated control.
