Networked Embedded System  (NEMBES)

 

NEMBES is an inter-institutional and multi-disciplinary research programme that will investigate a "whole system" approach to the design of networked embedded systems, marrying expertise in hardware, software and networking with the design and management of built environments. 

Networked Embedded Systems enable fine-grain sensing, monitoring and control and information gathering/delivery in science, engineering, manufacturing, energy, environment/ecology, daily living, healthcare, agriculture, traffic, security and many other applications at scales from the personal to the national and international.

Embedded systems have become a pervasive part of almost every aspect of working and living – 90% of the world’s microprocessors are embedded – and almost every modern convenience, industry and business would grind to a halt without them.

Global research is now focusing on networking of embedded systems to create an internet of co-operating intelligent objects – the “internet of things” – and, just as the internet has transformed our lives beyond recognition, the internet of things is forecast to have the same effect over the next two decades.
