Computer Vision and Sensing Systems (COVISS) Lab
At COVISS, we are interested in devising methods and systems that use information collected by multidimensional sensors to understand the physical world. These sensors may include traditional cameras, depth sensors, arrays of unidimensional sensors, or combinations thereof. In particular, we are interested in fusing observations obtained at different points in time or space or even with different sensing modalities. In order to keep our scientific contributions relevant, we work in close collaboration with researchers in several other areas, from agriculture to biomedical engineering and health sciences.
Electric Machines and Power Electronics at Marquette (EMPOWER) Lab
The power end energy systems group at Marquette conducts advanced research in the areas of electrical machines, power electronics and drives.

System Analytics for Communications and Energy (SACE) Lab
The System Analytics for Communications and Energy (SACE) lab focuses on creating advanced probabilistic and data-driven models to enable the prediction of performance of critical cyber-physical infrastructures, such as smart grids. For example, one of the goals of the SACE lab is to advance the fundamental understanding of the vulnerability, reliability and security of smart grids while capturing the interdependencies among the underlying communication network (SCADA), the transmission grid, and the human-computer interactions. The SACE Lab has a dedicated space of approximately 1000 sq. ft. in Engineering Hall, 471. It houses HP Z6 G4 [Intel Zeon Silver 4114 CPU @2.2 GHz (40 CPUs)] workstations for performing both AC and DC power-flow simulation and cascading-failures simulations on power grid test systems (e.g., Polish power grid, IEEE 118, IEEE 300, etc.).
