By 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) will consist of 50 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 ten 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 (more info).
The LEAD project coordinator contributed to the "US-Europe Invited Workshop on Next-Generation Internet of Things", where future IoT research challenges have been identified.
Four key researchers of the LEAD project will lead the research area 'Cognitive Products' in the COMET K1 Research Center Pro2Future on Future Products and Production Systems.
Members of the LEAD project are teaching a course on 'Dependable Internet of Things Communications' during the Microsoft Summer School on Internet of Things in Russia.
