Dependable Internet of Things
It is predicted that over 50 billion intelligent objects - smart things - will communicate with each other in the Internet of Things by 2020, allowing for numerous everyday applications. For example, cars will be able to communicate with each other on the streets to prevent accidents, and tailor-made furniture will be able to tell industrial production machines what exactly needs to be done to them. One day, the Internet of Things will be as important as the power grid is today. There is, however, still much research to be done, especially regarding the reliability of the Internet of Things. In particular, critical applications in health, traffic and production need to function perfectly at all times. Lead project researchers in the Field of Expertise Information, Communication & Computing at TU Graz are working on fundamental aspects that will enable computers embedded into everyday objects to function reliably, even under the most difficult conditions.
