The Digital Technology Group (DTG) is a research group within the Computer Laboratory and is led by Professor Andy Hopper. The DTG has a very wide area of expertise, its research scope ranging from system design, analysis and implementation at the physical level to development of novel devices and applications, an experience gained from a long history of applied research. As a distinctive feature, most projects within the group are also implemented in hardware and tested in real-world environments.
The research conducted within the Digital Technology Group is highly multi-disciplinary in nature. The current research topics include Computing for the Future of the Planet, Indoor Location and Tracking, Athlete Automatic Coaching, OS Kernel Enhancement, Low-Power Microprocessor Design, Privacy Systems and Policies, Wireless Sensor Networks, Cross-Layer Wireless Access, Cooperative Networks, Wireless Propagation Models for Challenging Environments, Channel Coding and Signal Processing for Wireless communications and more.
The group has also conducted research into conventional network systems and applications as well as more esoteric network technologies. At the applications and systems level, the DTG is particularly well-known for its work on location systems, pervasive, sentient and mobile computing systems. Please visit the wiki page for more info on past projects.
The research group was originally called the Open Media Group, and was located within the Computer Laboratory as part of the Systems Research Group. The group changed name to the Laboratory for Communication Engineering when it became part of the Engineering Department in 1997. In October 2004, the group rejoined the Computer Laboratory as the Digital Technology Group (DTG) - a name that was chosen to reflect the wide variety of research areas the group now covers.
