About Embedded Systems

An embedded system is a computer-based system that interacts with its environment. Embedded systems range from cell phones to radars and sonars, from biomedical and automotive devices to photovoltaic plants and power stations. More than 99 percent of all computer systems are embedded. The embedded systems field is on the verge of a revolution due to the convergence of computation, communication, sensing, actuating, and embedded power production technologies. This poses numerous challenges to self recovering systems, security and privacy, location-award computing, low-cost and low-power design, and many other areas of research.

At UWB the embedded systems research emphasis is on process automation networks, sensor networks, computer-aided design of embedded systems, reconfigurable/programmable embedded systems, design of low-power systems, architectural and compiler techniques for embedded systems, and Internet-based embedded systems.
