Embedded Systems Research Group is a part of the Department of Electronics at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, University of Nis ( Serbia and Montenegro ). Our power point presentation can be taken from >>.
Our research focus is on distributed, fault-tolerant, real-time embedded systems. Embedded systems are having a profound impact on society as it transitions into the information era. More than 90 percent of existing computer systems are embedded systems consisting of both hardware and software components. Advances in process technology and ever increasing demand of smarter, cheaper, and power-aware embedded systems have motivated the needs for better methodologies and tools to design, analyze, implement and deploy such systems. Concerning the embedded system research, we are particularly interested in the development of methods and tools for:
- system specification and modeling
- hardware/software co-design
- SoC architecture design
- Configurable and extensible processor design
- Distributed sensor networks
- Special topics in energy aware design, low-power design, fault-tolerance
We are interested to conduct our research in close cooperation with internationally recognized research groups from European Union and industrial partners. Particular areas in which the Embedded Systems Group plans research collaborations include:
- Wireless Networking for Embedded Devices
- Sensor Networks
- Networked Appliances
- Embedded Operating Systems
- SoC Design
On-going research projects
- Fault-tolerant systems (FTS). The first main goal of this project is to make designers comfortable with these issues, and able to exploit a vast opportunity that offers the reconfigurable logic. Modern ES architectures present new challenges to fault tolerant (FT) design engineers. The second goal of this project is to prepare design engineers how to set trade-off point between fault tolerance, performance, and low power consumption. Today, the power consumption of ESs is considered as one of the most important problems for portable devices. This is due to the limited cell battery lifetime. The third goal of this project is to navigate researchers towards design of efficient power management and energy harvesting circuitries implemented in ES devices.
- Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) . The main goal of the project is to develop laboratory platform and test-bed for research and experimentation in wirelles sensor networks.
- Self-checking circuit design. The main goal of the project is to develop efficient self-checking methodologies and tools to act as an enabling technology for the design of fault-tolerant embedded systems.
