The focus of the Embedded System Laboratory at Oakland University is on design and implementation approaches for low-cost and self-healing embedded computer systems. The lab has expertise in rapid prototyping of embedded systems using high performance mixed-signal microcontrollers and various software development tools and operating systems.

The current target applications of the lab are autonomous aerial vehicle systems and target recognition payloads. The lab recently started collaboration with medical researcher at William Beaumont Hospitals developing a drug dispensing device and patient motion monitoring and prediction systems.
