Dependable Internet of Things in Adverse Environments

By 2030, the Internet of Things (IoT) will consist of 500 billion resource-constrained “Smart Things” that will provide critical every-day services in applications as diverse as Smart Cities, Smart Production, or Connected Cars. These applications require a dependable IoT despite hostile environments and deliberate attacks, where dependability summarizes aspects such as reliability, safety and security that enable users to put trust into the IoT. Today’s approaches to construct an IoT do not guarantee dependability.

The research center “Dependable Internet of Things” brings together eleven of the best researchers from the departments of Computer Science & Biomedical Engineering and Electrical & Information Engineering at TU Graz in order to provide the scientific foundations for an IoT that works dependably and that is resilient against failures and attacks.

Besides carrying out cutting-edge basic research aiming to offer methods and tools to predict, guarantee, and ultimately raise the level of dependability of the IoT (more info), the center aims to transfer the research results into real-world applications together with local and international industry partners.

Successful Symposium on Dependable IoT

On Sept. 22 the third Symposium on Dependable IoT was held at TU Graz with about 150 participants from academia and industry, where the results from the second funding phase were presented. A keynote was delivered by Prof. Kim Larsen, Aalborg University. Matthias Himmler, Siemens, delivered and industry keynote - the symposium was held in cooperation with the Siemens Research and Innovation Ecosystem RIE, of which TU Graz is a member.
