M2M and Embedded Systems

The aim of the group is to develop a domain specific framework and methodology in order to reduce the time needed for application design and development in selected target domains (currently: Telemedicine and Smart City). As the name states (everything is included) we follow a holistic approach:

  • ISO13485 based software and HW development documentation, workflow
  • CI/CD based approach, framework
  • API and Mobile first approach based development methodology
  • Framework hiding/abstracting the selected backend
  • Workflow based backend logic
  • Sensor platform with P2P data collection and analysis
  • Number of integrated HW sensors
  • AI algorithms for the selected domains
  • Standard based data models
  • Well elaborated domain independent microservices
  • Well elaborated UI kits for the target domains
  • Seed projects for target domains

The platform itself is based on well-known and popular frameworks (e.g.: Google Firebase, Angular, Ionic, etc). On top of these frameworks, a CI/CD methodology and environment is provided. Beside the technology related foundations, domain specific standards are also incorporated (e.g.: ISO13485, FHIR or ITIL).

The Department of Software Engineering has years of experience in both the field of Telemedicine and Smart Cities.

In the field of Smart Cities we have:

  • US and EU patents in the field of P2P WiFi based traffic measurement
  • Autonomous solar panel based sensor platform with camera and WiFi based traffic measurement capabilities
  • On board camera and WiFi based passenger counting platform for trams, busses, etc.
  • Implemented algorithms for city wide traffic analysis

In the field of Telemedicine we have:

  • 10+ integrated sensors
  • FHIR based data model
  • ISO13485 based development methodology
  • Based on the platform we developed 6 full-fledged telemedicine applications
  • Various AI, signal processing solutions (e.g.: fibrillation detection)
