Expected Results

  • A solution to the complexity and interoperability problem related to the large number of different APIs and methods used for accessing communication interfaces, especially in the embedded domain.
  • Providing triggers, handles and APIs for different smart, context sensitive and link/network aware applications, enabling the development of cognitive applications.
  • A solution to the abstraction and extensibility problem related to different underlying wireless interfaces and networking technologies.
  • Design and in part implementation of a solution to hide the embedded communication network problems from the middleware, application and operating system programmers.
  • Results will be applicable to, for example, wireless controls, industrial processes, automotive applications, mobile and wireless terminals etc.
  • A wireless interface description method that can be used as a tool and as a framework for presenting and extending the API support for current and future wireless interfaces.
