Research in operating system is in constant move due to the increasing of wireless architectures with limited resources such as memory, battery or processor performance, and to emerging applications in the area of ambient computing.
ACES research directions are defined in this context. It mainly addresses two topics: embedded systems architecture and systems support for ambient computing.
- Embedded architectures and operating systems. Here, we are concerned with the characterisation of the resource used in embedded applications in terms of computing time and energy consumption. As well we address the design of operating systems taking into account hardware (limited resources) and software (hard and soft real time) constraints.
- Systems support for ambient computing. We are interested in the design of spatial information systems. This concept consists in building and controlling implicitly computing systems in relation to the properties of the physical world, like the relative position of physical objects and their movements. The implementation of such systems requires efficient distributed mechanisms to spread and sense contextual information, as well as appropriate programming models to handle the physical context of the applications.
