Autonomous Critical Embedded Systems [ACES]

The research areas of the Autonomous Critical Embedded Systems team address concurrent systems, including parallel systems and distributed systems, for which non-operational properties such as performance and security need to be guaranteed.


In order to cover the entire spectrum of concurrent systems, the ACES team has chosen to structure its work in two themes:

Loosely coupled systems

  • Complex autonomous systems
  • Fault-tolerant and asynchronous distributed computing
  • Model-based testing
  • Internet of Things security
  • Distributed services

Strongly coupled systems

  • Real-time systems
  • Deterministic platform
  • Critical system design process
  • Safety and security
  • Energy consumption of computation

Team members

Key words

  • Safe and secure critical systems
  • Concurrent and distributed systems
  • Autonomic systems
