Network Embedded Middleware for Heterogeneous Physical Devices in a Distributed Architecture

Hydra is a middleware for building secure, fault-tolerant Networked Embedded Systems where diverse heterogeneous devices co-operate to achieve a given goal. It aims to research, develop, and validate middleware for networked embedded systems that allows developers to develop cost-effective, high-performance ambient intelligence applications for heterogeneous physical devices. The main aim is to hide the complexity of the underlying infrastructure while providing open interfaces to third parties for application development.

Specific projects objectives include:

  • Research and development of a middleware for networked embedded systems that allows developers to develop cost-effective, high-performance ambient intelligence applications for heterogeneous physical devices.
  • Development of a Software Development Kit (SDK) that can be used by developers to develop innovative Model-Driven applications.
  • Research and development of a business modelling framework for analysing the business sustainability of the developed applications.
