Welcome to the Embedded Computing Laboratory (EC Lab) at the Department of Electrical Engineering of the Information Technology University (ITU), Lahore. The research group is directed by Dr. Khurram Bhatti. Embedded systems contain various combinations of different subsystems with different applications. The research focus of EC Lab is to address computing artifacts such as digital systems, computer architectures, computing models, algorithms, and software from the perspective of the requirements and constraints related to embedded systems such as power & energy efficiency, security, predictability, and real-time so as to propose novel techniques for modeling, optimizing, and verifying current and future embedded computing systems. The EC Lab aims at designing innovative computing systems for the mobile and embedded domain that offer high performance, flexibility, energy-efficiency, and predictability.
Team associated with the Embedded Computing lab have been engaged in following projects at Information Technology University (ITU).
Faculty associated with the Embedded Computing lab is engaged in teaching following courses at Information Technology University (ITU).
Embedded Systems, Real-time and Mixed Criticality Systems, Parallel Computing Systems, Context-aware Computing, and Multicore/Manycore Scheduling.
His research work is focused on using multidisciplinary approaches to develop innovative solutions for public health.
Asim did his Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering from COMSATS Lahore in 2008 and Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering
from The University of Lahore in 2015. He has works as embedded systems engineer at Dr Inam Elahi R&D lab for 3 years and as lecturer at The University of Lahore for 5 years before joining ECLab.
Rizwan has done his BS in Electronic Engineering. He has more than eight years of industrial experience in hardware design of microprocessor and
microcontroller based systems for UAVs, satellites and IoT systems. During his Master in Computer Science from ITU Lahore, he has been engaged in research for energy efficient operating systems and secure application layer protocols for IoT devices. His interests in embedded system and IoT security lead him to join EC lab where he is actively involved in research for security of cloud systems. His research interests include side channel attacks analysis and development of attack detection and mitigation techniques for IAAS
Umair did his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from UET Peshawar in 2013 and Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from
LUMS in 2016. His areas of expertise are Embedded Systems and Computer Architecture. Umair has experience of working as a Teaching Assistant for Embedded System, Circuit Analysis and Computer Architecture courses at LUMS.
Usman has completed his B.Sc. Electrical Engineering from University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore (SCET, Lahore) with distinction. He won South
Asia Triple Hilux Association (SATAH) Award for designing ‘Smart Power Distribution Management Systems’ in Innovation to invention summit 2017 held in Punjab University & UMT Lahore. He also secured 2nd position in National level programming competition ‘Think n Code’ in PIEAS National Olympiad 2015 held in PIEAS, Islamabad. He served as IEEE SCET Student Branch Chair during year 2016 and he organized many events in campus. He secured grant of $675 to attend 2nd IEEE PES Student Congress in Malaysia in August 2016.
Manzar completed his Bachelors in Electrical and Computer Engineering from CIIT Islamabad in 2016. In his undergraduate studies he worked on
implementation of a Digital Computer, based on the classical MIPS architecture, in 'Field Programmable Gate Arrays' (FPGA) using Verilog HDL. His current research interests are geared towards experimentation on the Approximate Computing paradigm in Digital Communication Systems where he is trying to implement a communication system using state of the art approximate adders and multipliers in order to quantify the errors introduced because of them.
