Electronic, information and communication systems research
We have research expertise in acoustics, non-destructive testing, remote sensing and sensor development.
Our researchers also work in areas like realistic sound for cinema and gaming, architectural acoustics for learning spaces, noise and vibration control.
Embedded systems design
Our expertise is in sensor applications, instrumentation, control and wireless sensor networks.
Language and speech processing
Expertise in speech processing, image processing and language processing technologies. Our research is investigating Māori speech recognition tools and speech emotion and sentiment recognition. We are investigating applying speech processing technology in foreign language teaching and learning and the development of text mining and machine translation.
Micro and power electronics
Our researchers have expertise in electronic design and testing.
Our expertise in power electronics has application into variable speed machine drives, integration of multiple sources of renewable energy, sensing and instrumentation, and the application into automation and robotics.
We also have expertise in microchip design, Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) and integrated circuit design.
Vision and image processing
This area involves developing algorithms and software for recognising patterns, individuals, objects and other specialist features in images and movie sequences. Applications include security scanning systems, control of robots and product quality scanning.
We also have interests in visual perception, colour science and multi/hyper-spectral imaging.

Analysing Harmful Electromagnetic Exposure due to Future Millimeter Wave Transmissions
Funded by: Lottery Health Research Fund
This study is investigating potential adverse effects of electromagnetic radiation on human health caused by the next generation of telecommunication networks – or 5G.
The study, led by Dr Faraz Hasan, will potentially either build consumer confidence in the future telecommunication services or result in the recommendation of industry modifications to the technology to ensure human wellbeing.
Developing a new way of measuring animal pain
A new device designed by engineers and veterinarians at Massey University seeks to change the way we understand and manage animal pain, starting with sheep. The research team worked with Massey’s engineering expertise to develop a device which is better for animal and researcher. It transmits data via wifi and is lighter and more comfortable for the animal.
Redefining the dense world of 5G telecommunications
Partners: Auckland University of Technology (New Zealand), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), Sungkyunkwan University (South Korea)
This project explores innovative methods to make future 5G communication technology a reality without incurring heavy financial investment. This work, led by Dr Faraz Hasan, changes the very nature of 5G networks from being fixed, capacity-limited and hardware-driven to being dynamic, always-available and software-driven.
