The renowned professor Dr. Kuang-Yow Lian’s System Analysis and Control Laboratory is under the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taipei University of Technology, Taiwan. The analysis of signal systems and the control technology is the main focus area of the laboratory. In the earlier years, the research in the lab explored innovations in the field of power convertors, synchronization systems and intelligent control and many projects are successfully completed in these fields. In the recent years with advancement in Information Technology, the research is expanded to integration of networking technology, microcontroller design, environmental and physiological sensing technology, household appliances control, motor control technology and healthcare systems. With a current strength of around 30 students from different graduate levels including bachelors, masters and doctorate, a high-end research is performed in the lab. International students from other corners of the world is also doing research in the lab and this shows an all-embracing face of our lab. The uninterrupted research funding and support from the MOST (Ministry of Science and Technology) and other industries always helped our lab to meet new goals.

Apart from conferences and symposiums, our lab members attend many competitions every year. The competition was very intense in most cases and many students from different institutions attend the competitions. It is our lab members who won the award in many of these competitions and this shows the high quality of research undergoing in our lab. Some of the awards and recognitions received by our lab members in different competitions are mentioned below:
Our lab is equipped with advanced machines including latest 3D printing machine, highly configured computer systems, robots, Microcontrollers, Embedded boards, various sensors, printers, scanners and much more which are useful for the efficient research work. The latest licensed version of programming softwares including Visual Studio, Matlab, simulation softwares etc. are available in the lab. We regularly check the requirements of the lab and makes sure the lab is well equipped with all the latest facilities required for high-end research. We have developed a website (http://www.smartliving-lab.net) for our lab which regularly updates all the activities of the lab. Eyeing the future world of artificial intelligence, we have already step foot in the implementation of fast and efficient algorithms, speech processing technologies, biometrics and emotion recognition. Some of our recent research topics are stated below:
Every Thursdays in a week, we have a team meeting where all the lab members and Professor meet in a conference hall and have a discussion about the research work and latest trends in the field of science and technology. During every team meeting, at least two lab members present their research findings using Microsoft Power point and in some cases a video will be included in the presentation for better understanding. A question and answer session follows after every presentation where the lab members clarify their doubts with the presenter and the professor gives suggestions for improvements and advices to the presenters. The friendly and cooperative environment in the lab helps the lab members to learn from one another. A team excursion is conducted every year for relaxation and enjoyment.
