A cognitive system is a biological or artificial system that shows adaptive, proactive, emotive and other behavior characteristic of living things. For us, this means that any work that we do, should exhibit any or all of the aforesaid behaviour characteristic. In terms of our current research, we are working in the adjoining areas.
As part of an IT services organisation that also imparts IT education, we focus on improving learning effectiveness. Most of our current work is related to Minimally Invasive Education (MIE), a pedagogic method that enables groups of children to learn on their own. We also carry out research on Learning Styles, which is the way each of us learns based on how we perceive and process information. Read on>>
Remote Monitoring
CRCS is looking at ways to monitor unattended devices and the environmental conditions around them from a remote location. This has been used in some of our applications like Internet kiosks and robotic cameras.

Human Computer Interfaces
Human Computer Interaction at CRCS is not limited to the study of GUI design but also includes the designing of application specific devices with embedded computers and their interaction with human beings.

Internet Technology
From website development related know-how to creation of data transmission protocol over TCP/IP, the use of the Internet forms the backbone of most of the work at CRCS. Our efforts in this field include employing Internet technologies to develop innovative applications like Internet enabled devices, and exploring areas like crawlers, agents and web bots.

The underlying theme for most of the work at CRCS is pervasive computing of which wireless computing is an integral part. The efforts of CRCS in the area of Wireless have led to the development of significant applications. For example, in 1997, the Wireless Perception Recording System was developed and used in a project for the telecommunication giant, Ericsson. Over the years, our interest in Wireless Computing has grown manifold. Currently, a substantial portion of CRCS work involves the use of IR, RF, GSM and GPS technology.

Self Organizing Systems
We believe that next logical step forward in the evolution of cognitive systems is self-organisation. CRCS has made small beginnings in this direction by incorporating self-organising behaviour in some of our applications. It is still quite a nascent research area for us but we hope to develop a true self-organising sytem in the near future.
