Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR)
SPIR Report – 2010 – 2011
SPIR, a State University of New York (SUNY) grant program, fills a gap in state industrial assistance programs through technically advanced, multidisciplinary assistance delivered on a fast turnaround basis to New York State companies. Companies receiving SPIR funds – which typically average about one-third of the overall project cost – have access to more than 50 UB faculty engineers and applied scientists from the seven schools of engineering.
MAE's Automation, Robotics, and Mechatronics Laboratory is conducting research both on the theoretical formulation and experimental validation of such novel mechatronic systems as multi-robot collaboration.
Center of Excellence for Document Analysis and Recognition (CEDAR)
Research at CEDAR focuses on the theory and applications of pattern recognition, machine learning, and information retrieval. CEDAR is a leader document analysis and recognition, object recognition in images in three-dimensional scenes, forensic document examination, textual information retrieval, biometrics, and bioinformatics.
