Institute of Electronics and Computer Science (EDI)

The Institute of Electronics and Computer Science (In latvian: Elektronikas un Datorzinātņu Institūts, EDI) has been founded in 1960 as a part of Latvian Academy of Science fulfilling governmental and USSR space and military research orders. Today EDI is an independent public research institution funded by national research programs and international projects. Research areas at EDI include design of embedded hardware and software platforms for WSN, including EdiMote - hardware prototyping and profiling platform and MansOS - a Unix-like operating system for WSN, directional antennas and WSN applications for wild animal tracking,environmental and urban sensing and health care. EDI is in the process of building a mixed indoor-outdoor testbed for WSN research that will be available to international research community.

 

Other research areas include hyper-spectral image analysis, event timing of several picoseconds, multi-modal biometry, UWB communications, high sensitivity signal registration and signal-dependent non-uniform discretization methods.

 

Dr.sc.comp. Leo Selavo has worked with John Stankovic's WSN group at University of Virginia, collaborated with WSN research teams at Harvard and Johns Hopkins Universities, has co-authored papers in the leading WSN conferences, including SenSys. He has also organized workshop on WSNs for medical care (at INSS'07) and has served as TPC member for several conferences and journals.

 

M.sc.comp. Girts Strazdins is a PhD candidate and lecturer teaching course "Wireless Sensor Networks" at the Faculty of Computing, University of Latvia. His master's thesis "Urban traffic optimization with mobile sensor agents" won the first prize in the national master's thesis' competition in 2008. He has participated in CONET SENIOT summer school in 2009. G. Strazdins joined EDI in 2010 where he started research on WSN programming and applications.
