A number of test-beds is under development at the Integrated systems Facility and the Embedded System & Networking Laboratory of the IMS Research Gro up. We envision that the test-bed will be utilized to achieve the following goals:
- Models and algorithms that we are developing as a part of our research agenda can be effectively tested and validated in a short time, which adds value to our academic work.
- Different hardware and software tools provided by our industry partners can be tested and benchmarked in a real life-like, industrial setting.
- Based on the first two goals, we can design and develop new tools that can provide viable solutions to the industry.
In order to achieve these goals, we have laid out an effective plan for design, development, and implementation of hardware and software modules that can be integrated in a flexible manner.
