Embedded systems

Research focus and goals

The research theme on Embedded systems is a multidisciplinary field with strong emphasis on applying the latest research results and technologies for solving a multitude of demanding development tasks. Focus is on ambient intelligence and augmented reality. Ambient intelligence refers to all information technology embedded into our everyday environments such as sensors, actuators, user interfaces, communication, IoT and services. These can be applied in e.g. smart home, health care, automotive or industrial settings. Augmented reality is the ultimate user interface. Powerful embedded computing systems add, remove and forge stimuli before the user senses them, and appear to bend the very fabric of reality. Interactive displays floating in thin air or objects cloaking themselves with invisibility are no longer science fiction, but the cutting edge of research found at TAU.
