Project Synopsis

The Networked Embedded Systems (NEMBES) research programme is a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional research, education, and knowledge transfer programme funded by the Irish Higher Education Authority’s Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions (PRTLI) under cycle 4 of the programme. The research programme started in October 2007 and runs for 4 years. The programme is led by the Centre for Adaptive Wireless Systems at Cork Institute of Technology and includes partners from 4 Irish Universities and Research Institutes - Trinity College Dublin, UCD Dublin, University College Cork, and the Tyndall National Institute as well as the Cork Centre for Architectural Education, Cork University Hospital and Cork City Council. The aim of the NEMBES research programme is to develop networked embedded systems (NES) technology from the hardware and systems integration level to the network, middleware, and system, network, and service management level as well as from a programming perspective. The applications space for the NES technology is the “Responsive Built Environment”, that is buildings themselves as well as the municipal build environment. Specific focus is given towards design for energy efficiency, traffic management, and hospital hygiene.
