Research Interests:

Advances in very large-scale integration and microelectromechanical system technology have boosted the development of micro sensor integrated systems. Such systems combine computing, storage, radio technology, and energy source on a single chip. When distributed over a wide area, networks of these embedded devices can perform a variety of tasks that range from environmental monitoring and military surveillance, to navigation and control of a moving vehicle.

A common feature of these systems is the presence of significant communication delays and data loss across the network. From the point of view of control theory, significant delay is equivalent to loss, as data needs to arrive to its destination in time to be used for control. In short, communication and control become tightly coupled such that the two issues cannot be addressed independently. Bruno Sinopoli's research interest focuses on the analysis and design of networked embedded control systems, with applications to sensor actuators networks.
