Dr. Graves has over 20 years of experience in teaching and researching embedded systems and is the director of the Auto, Mobile, Pervasive, and Embedded Design (AMPED) Laboratory at NC A&T State University. The AMPED Lab facilitates student exploration of embedded and pervasive computing systems design concepts in the context of the systems that are typical in a modern standard automobile. Although this advanced embedded/pervasive systems design laboratory has an “automotive theme” for teaching and research purposes, it accommodates the exploration of embedded/pervasive systems in other environments such as the home, classroom, and office.

Research Interests

Over the past several years the research focus has been in the area of pervasive computing systems for education enhancement, which involves the development of hi-tech computing and information systems that enhance education processes such that the technology is embedded into a normal teaching or learning routine in a seamless, or near-seamless, manner. Current projects include developing approaches for seamless interactions between wearable and vehicular computing systems, as well as developing a tablet-based context aware classroom activity monitoring system.
