It is intended to provide further insights into biomedical systems by employing new methods and innovative technological solutions for the benefit of society and advancement of human health. The line of research in Biomedical Engineering addresses the following areas: engineering applied to physiology and biopharmaceutical processes (development of therapeutic, pharmaceutical and rehabilitation procedures and devices); aerospace engineering applied to health (simulation in extreme environments and physiological monitoring); processing and analysis of biological signals and medical imaging (processing and digital analysis techniques of images, health informatics, telehealth, artificial intelligence applied to biomedical signals and images); modeling of biomedical systems; biomedical instrumentation (biomedical sensors, systems for acquisition of biomedical signals and images); biomechanics (analysis of kinetics and kinematics of human body, architecture and muscle activation).
Computer Systems, Control and Automation This Line of Research is dedicated to the design of integrated systems with an emphasis on the development of test and fault tolerance methodologies capable of guaranteeing their robustness. In particular, the Computing Systems Line is based on the development of integrated systems through the use of reconfigurable hardware (Field Programmable Gate Array - FPGA), as well as ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) and COTS (Components of the Shelf) . In addition, it addresses points related to the optimization of Integrated Circuits (Cls), such as Low Power-, Aging- and Temperature-Aware Design and the development of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools. The Line is also dedicated to developing techniques in hardware and software for the design of robust Systems-on-Chip (SoC) to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and ionizing radiation. Recently, the Line has focused on the study of emerging technologies, such as graphene, for the design of ICs. As of January 2020, this Line also starts to carry out basic and applied research in the areas of control and automation systems, including also the concern to increase the robustness and reliability of these systems, aiming at critical applications, such as the prospecting sector and oil and gas production (monitoring and control systems in gas and oil pipelines, among others). The various stages in the design of control systems are studied, from the modeling and identification of systems, to the analysis and design of controllers aiming at the safe and efficient performance of the most varied applications. The main research topics include: development of advanced controllers focused on performance and robustness, the modeling and identification of complex systems and the analysis of non-linear systems. Notably, this Line also has immediate application in the aerospace industry (autonomous navigation systems - UAVs) and the automobile industry (intelligent vehicles), among others.
