The Joint Intellisensing Lab (JIL) was established in Nov 2016, based on International collaborations among Shanghai Ocean University (China), Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands) and Queensland University of Technology (Australia).Later, it has expanded with more partners from Italy and Cyprus. Our aim is to establish an international lab for transdisciplinary research in the area of intellisensing (a combination of artificial intelligence and smart sensing), joining expertise and facilities to achieve global impact of cutting-edge innovations.



The JIL focuses on various aspects of intelligent sensing, including both fundamental and applied research. Massive-scale sensing, such as in environmental monitoring and urban systems, will generate data (at network edge) on the Zettabyte scale. These will be largely unstructured, uncorrelated, noisy and incomplete, posing the biggest big-data problem ever. That is why conventional big-data methods need to be adapted to the distributed nature of the problems at hand. We are aiming to make breakthroughs in distributed data mining, miniaturized machine learning, and network science. To carry out empirical studies, we seek to address the infrastructural issues relating to data collection and transfer, connecting our Internet of Things testbeds into an Open IoT facility.

The three lab nodes have particular strengths in:

·Smart Ocean Sensing (Shanghai)

·Smart Sensing and Ambient Intelligence (Eindhoven)

·Environment and Citizen Sensing (Brisbane)

·Range Image Sensors (Italy)

·Localization and Wireless IoT Communications (Cyprus)


We are expecting to further expand our scope, when new parties will join JIL.



JIL strengthens the collaboration and cooperation among the joint parties in many ways: bundling of resources; global-scale testing facilities; student and staff exchanges; validating scientific breakthroughs in multi-disciplinary applications; attracting industrial partnerships; making real-world impact through cross-continental projects; dissemination through joint papers and regular colloquia.
