Embedded Software Group
The Embedded Software Group has two main lines of research. In both lines of research we focus on the energy efficiency of the computation. One on the embedded technology contained in the ubiquitous devices found on our daily environments, such as home appliances, laptop computers, cell phones, and small sensors. The other on modern heterogeneous computing that combines various traditional forms computing, such as signal processing, data processing, and event processing.
Mobile hand-held devices have been the main application area of our research. The group concentrates on the methods and tools of performance engineering, compiler technology and operating system technology. The mission of the group is to gather and create technology on the realization of embedded software systems.
