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.

LEAD Project Symposium on Sept. 22, 2022

The one-day research symposium offers an overview about research results on dependability for the IoT. Prof. Kim Larsen, Aalborg University will deliver an exciting keynote. Besides numerous research talks by our LEAD project experts, an exhibition with demos and posters is offered. Please find further information here.

LEAD Project at Long Night of Research 2022

Visit our exhibits during the Long Night of Research on May 20, from 6pm on TU Graz campus Neue Technik. We will present our work on wireless localization and on robotics. More information here.
