Architectures for Dynamic Resilient Embedded Autonomous Mobile systems
The Embedded Systems Platform
The Embedded Systems Platform at LAAS-CNRS
has been designed to be an advanced support environment for the design and the validation of ubiquitous systems that rely on pervasive computing and ambiant intelligence. It will thus integrate mobile and autonomous devices, embedded into an augmented environment with sensors and actuators, interconnected by wireless networks. This platform has been defined to share and pool many complementary knowledge and skills originating from all MINAS
research areas of the laboratory, and to demonstrate by its design and deployment, the innovative facets of development, realization and integration of the research conducted on in this domain by LAAS and its partners.
To reach this goal, the Embedded Systems Platform will include a large sef of advanced research, multidisciplinary, addressing the production and optimised consumption of electrical energy, the perception and interpretation of the environment, the intelligent design and implementation in robotics and in mesh and ad hoc networks, the architecture of services and hardware-software protocols, et finally using various dependability attributes (availability, security, privacy, etc.).
More precisely, this research will increase the impact of our present studies and produce new results in many related domains, such as complex and mobile embedded systems, and more particularly, in the areas of energy, sensors, robots, networks, decision, autonomy and adaptivity. It will also span the development of methodological methods and approaches, on one hand for validation and verification, and on the other hand, for implementation and actual deployment. The corresponding work will also address the new problem of interconnecting these research results, following a « system of systems » approach, that will integrate them altogether, in a coherent and innovative way, in the le new building intended to host the ADREAM Project.
