Welcome to the Wisconsin Embedded Systems and Computing (WISEST) Lab at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. We are engaged in research on design, architecture, and optimization of hardware and software of embedded computing systems. Our current interests include low-power and power-aware computing, security and reliability of safety-critical systems, and mobile and pervasive computing.
