Communications / IT

We’re doing research that will make the next era of communications and connection possible.

From paving the way for 5G mobile to broadening access to wireless service, we are breaking new ground in telecommunications, signal processing, and networking research.

It isn’t hyperbole to suggest that everyday reality might soon include airborne drones using computer vision and cloud-based AI to identify and avoid obstacles, ultra-fast communications between smart vehicles to avoid collisions, teams of robots “talking” to each other to perform complex tasks, physicians doing surgery remotely and wirelessly, and AR/VR experiences delivered to your mobile screens and smart glasses. NYU Tandon research is making these and other revolutionary advances in telecommunications happen.
