Weishan Zhang - University Of Aarhus Weishan Zhang - University Of Aarhus Presentation Transcript

  • The HYDRA project Weishan Zhang Dept. of Computer Science Aarhus University IST-2005-034891
  • Project technical objectives
    • Develop a middleware for networked embedded systems based on a Service-oriented Architecture including:
      • Support for distributed as well as centralised ambient intelligent architectures
      • Support for reflective properties of components of the middleware
      • Support for security and trust enabling components
    • Develop a generic semantic model-based architecture supporting model-driven development of ambient intelligence applications.
  • Project technical objectives
    • Tools for solutions providers, SDK
      • Easy to integrate and use devices in applications
      • Hide complexity of underlying network and device access protocols
      • Integrated into familiar programming environments
    • Tools for device manufacturers, DDK
      • Low cost for networking devices
      • Support for their devices to be part of an intelligent environment
