We are currently witnessing the integration of two long- lost relatives: on the one hand general purpose computing and its networking backbone, the Internet, and on the other hand embedded computing. However, the development of applications exploiting this merged infrastructure is currently exceedingly difficult. The goal of this project is hence to investigate unified concepts, methods, and software infrastructures that facilitate the efficient development of applications that span and integrate the Internet and the embedded world. The key metric of success for our project is the effort required for development of robust, interoperable, and scalable applications in the Internet of Things (IoT).
Outcomes that we are currently integrating:
