Welcome to the Pervasive Systems CentreThe Pervasive Systems Centre (PSC) is a research centre in the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) at the University of Southampton, UK. Pervasive systems represent a major market for the wireless and mobile electronics industries, and are of critical importance to society and the economy. The PSC tackles the challenges of pervasive computing by drawing on multidisciplinary expertise from across research groups, including sensors, signal processing, communications, system design and computer science.
The PSC is home to the ARM-ECS research centre, founded in 2008 following previous successfull collaborations. The centre is based within ECS, but also includes researchers, studentships and internships at ARM. The centre is co-directed by Prof-Al-Hashimi and Dr David Flynn (ARM Fellow, ECS Visiting Professor), and focuses on leading-edge research on advanced design methods, architectures and their practical validations for energy-efficient and dependable single-core and multi-core processor systems.
The PSC is in a unique position to address the major research challenges of pervasive systems, through the necessary breadth of world-leading expertise that is housed in ECS. Research in the PSC is focused on three major research themes: Wireless Sensing and Sensor Networks, Low-Energy Sustainable Systems, and Pervasive Healthcare and Telemedicine. These are represented by the interest groups (WiSE, HCE and LESS respectively). For further information on the activities and research of the PSC, please select a research theme/interest group from those shown below.
