NEST - Networked Embedded Software Technology

Project directorProf. Dr. Edgar Nett
Project typeDrittmittelprojekt
Project term01.09.2001 - 31.12.2003

The project is aimed to establish a middleware architecture and prototype that enable large-scale networked embedded computing application developers to assure in cost-effective manners that their application products possess sufficient degrees of three desirable properties, timeliness, fault-tolerance, and security, under variable conditions of functional load, node failures, and network topology. One of the new fundamental design paradigms being explored here is the time-based coordination of distributed actions that is provided by the TMO concept of Prof. K. Kim"s research team at UC Irvine.
