EISLAB EIS Architecture

The EIS architecture group at EISLAB performs research on design methodologies, tools and realizations of Embedded Internet Systems.

Key to our research is the concept of reactivity; reactivity in the sense that a system reacts to events, either internal to the system or caused by its environment. This is manifested through the modeling paradigm of Timber with the ultimate goal of low-power, robust, scalable, distributed systems, with formally established real-time properties.
The reactive approach is applied throughout the system design, all the way from protocols for service discovery, Internet Protocol based communication, down to analog and digital sensor interfaces. By collaboration with the Mixed mode design group, the theoretical work can be demonstrated in real-world applications.

The group has through the Europractice cooperation access to commercial tool-chains for digital synthesis.
