Structure of the department
Head of the centre: Jaan Raik
Centre for Dependable Computing Systems was established in the Department of Computer Systems on January 1, 2017 on the basis of the research group of dependable computing systems design. The research covers a wide range of topics in the areas of digital systems’ (including multi-/many-core systems) design, reliability, verification and test.
Head of the centre: Eduard Petlenkov
Centre for Intelligent Systems was established on January 1, 2017 in the Department of Computer Systems on the basis of Control Systems Research Laboratory, Chair of Automatic Control and System Analysis and Chair of Circuit Theory and Design from the former Department of Computer Control. The Centre consists of the Control Systems Laboratory (http://a-lab.ee) and Virtual and Augmented Reality Laboratory (http://recreation.ee).
Head of the centre: Maarja Kruusmaa
Centre for Biorobotics develops new kinds of robots inspired by biology. We mainly focus on underwater robotics. We work in international research groups with underwater biologists, underwater archaeologist, animal scientist and oceanographers to solve problems in these application areas. Competences: robotics, underwater robotics, sensor technologies, fluid dynamics, mechatronics, robot control, robot software architectures and operation systems.
Head of the centre: prof. Samuel Nascimento Pagliarini
The Centre for Hardware Security conducts research in all applied aspects of Hardware Security: our aim is to validate security techniques in real silicon. The Centre's research on integrated circuit (IC) design, electronic design automation (EDA), and cryptographic hardware enables trustworthy IC-based systems to be built. Threats such as Hardware Trojans, reverse engineering, circuit (de)obfuscation, IP piracy, IC overbuilding, side-channel attacks, etc., are addressed through an array of technical countermeasures.
Head of the lab: Artur Jutman
The Embedded AI Research Lab focuses on developing machine learning solutions in the embedded systems. The laboratory collaborates internationally with research teams and companies from the maritime, medical, smart city, autonomous vehicles and industrial automation sectors.
Learning centre of Computer Systems
Head of the centre: Peeter Ellervee
Learning centre of Computer Systems coordinates teaching activities of the department for several study programmes at bachelor and master levels. An active cooperation with the other centres of the the department and with the other departments of the university ensures interdisciplinarity and contemporaneity of the taught courses.
