Introduction to the Intelligent Systems Research Center

Established in 2013 under the auspices of the Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology, the Intelligent Systems Research Center (ISRC) at the University of Yazd is dedicated to advancing research that meets national development goals and automates domestic industries. In 2018, it received final approval from the Ministry, solidifying its mission.

ISRC focuses on research aligned with regional and national needs in three key areas:

  • Electronics & Computer Science: Telecommunications, computer systems, network security, image processing, and audio processing.
  • Mechanics: Robotics, mechatronics, and automation.
  • Electrical Engineering: Power networks, signal processing, control, and applied electromagnetics.

Our long-term objectives are:

  • Strengthening industry-relevant research: Boosting the quality and quantity of research projects focused on industry needs.
  • Bridging research and commerce: Commercializing research and technology projects for real-world impact.
  • Enhancing student involvement: Guiding student research towards industry-relevant topics.
  • Engaging faculty: Increasing faculty participation in research activities.
  • Supporting knowledge-based companies: Facilitating the establishment of companies leveraging research outputs.

To achieve these goals, ISRC research groups focus on several key areas:

  • Industrial process optimization: Utilizing automation and intelligent systems.
  • Network security: Protecting telecommunications and computer systems.
  • Data mining and search engines: Developing advanced information retrieval solutions.
  • Next-generation communication: Researching and developing cutting-edge communication technologies.
  • Electrical engineering applications: Signal processing, control, automation, and electromagnetics for practical applications.
  • Mechatronics and robotics: Developing advanced automated systems.

Currently, ISRC comprises four research groups:

  • Mechatronics
  • Telecommunications and Computer Networks
  • Signal Processing
  • Power Quality and Intelligent Networks (launching soon)

ISRC actively seeks to expand its capabilities and activities to remain at the forefront of intelligent systems research.
