September 2022: We hosted a workshop for researchers from the University of Victoria, Toronto Metropolitan University and NRC for our project on inspection of remote infrastructure using UAVs.

September 2021: Our team F. Dadboud, V. Patel, V. Mehta got the second place in “drone-vs-bird” detection challenge, launched in conjunction with the activities of the 17-th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-based Surveillance (AVSS), 2021.

May 2021: We have received NRC "AI for Logistic" Collaborative 3 year grant titled: BVLOS Inspection of critical logistics infra- and superstructures using coordinated multiple UAS


The group is performing research in the following areas:

Learning in combined phyisical and machine learning models normally relies on computational approximate methods and therefore the term: computational analysis.


This research group evolved from Computer Architecture research group (original CARG). Computer architecture research group was formed in 2008 and focused on the following topics: computer architectures, signal processing architectures, hardware and software accelerators, GPU architectures and programming and algorithmic modifications for more efficient implementation in hardware. In recent years our research has gone in several different directions and therefore we decided to change the name of our group to Computational Analysis and Acceleration Research Group (new CARG).
