The Instrumentation Robotics and Control (IRC) laboratory is a research and instructional facility of the UP-EEEI which provides technology solutions in managing production resources, health care, and education. Its research thrusts are biomedical engineering; traffic, structural, and environmental monitoring; wireless sensor networks; and embedded systems and mechatronics; and hardware interfaces for interactive learning. It is the development arm of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST)- UP Enterprise Center for Technopreneurship.
Sample researchers under IRC Lab are as follows:
