​​Research Focus Areas

The institute works along two complementary lines of research.

Systems safety and reliability

  • Analysis, modelling and design of architectures to achieve the best security of systems, applications and interfaces
  • Modelling of systems to increase the security and reliability of applications
  • Model based xIL "in-the-loop" Design for testing, validation and verification
  • Functional safety and certification aspects of complex systems
  • Data collection and interpretation for securing access networks and Smart Grid

Embedded and networked systems

  • Analysis, design and realization of software architectures in Linux, iOS and Android for embedded and mobile systems
  • Real-time and distributed systems on single and multi-core microprocessors, MPSoC (Multi-Processor System-on-Chip) with and without virtualization
  • Implementation of operating systems for low-power systems
  • Modelling and design of applications for energy efficiency of buildings
  • Analysis and implementation of low-power communication systems dedicated to use for Internet of things (IoT)
  • Design of localization systems for tracking people and objects
