AUT's research institutes bring focus to research activity. Their aim is to:
IRASR offers teaching in astronomy and exciting research in a range of projects associated with Radio Astronomy, Astrophysics, and Space Geodesy. IRASR is equipped with a modern 12m radio telescope at Warkworth, north of Auckland, and a supercomputer based on IBM Cell BE platform and running the IBM InfoSphere Streams specialised software.
KEDRI was established to help the Knowledge Economy of New Zealand. Its focus is the development of intelligent information systems that enable Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Discovery in all areas of science and technology in New Zealand.
Our mission is to create, develop and commercialise innovative IT products. Information Technology encompasses all forms of technology used to create and manipulate information in its various forms.
The SERL conducts research in a number of key research theme areas, namely; Computational Methods, Autonomous Software, Software Engineering Process and Computer Graphics, Imaging & Visualisation. Research within the themes has a mix of academic, practical and commercial importance that contributes to the overall knowledge economy of New Zealand.
The laboratory has a wide range of equipment available including LF,HF and UHF Tags and Readers, active tags and NFC-enabled mobile devices. The laboratory has strong industry links and is a member of the New Zealand RFID pathfinder.
Our research, under the umbrella of Network and Security, not only provides sound theoretical foundations of key network design, evaluation and management but also involves more practical oriented efforts to solve industry problems. The Network and Security Research Group (NSRG) is one of the key research centres in the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences.
The areas of current research at the Geoinformatics Research Centre include projects in data mining and modelling, trend analysis and prediction sytems, audio mining (speech and voice recognition), signal and image processing, remote sensing and GIS applications, wireless sensor networking with associated database and web interface technologies.
