DAISy Unit

DAISy aims to design distributed intelligent hardware / software systems, which are seamlessly integrated into objects and their environment, and thus are intuitive to use.
These systems are in principle composed of heterogeneous and resource-constrained artefacts, which operate over unstable wireless networks.

Artefacts are objects or appliances, which have been augmented with (or have access to) sensing, computing and communication abilities.

DAISy conducts research on the disciplines related to its mission, designs and develops artefacts and implements ambient intelligence systems.

It applies a combination of component-based software engineering, knowledge representation, real-time systems design and design for acceptability techniques to meet the specific requirements of these systems, which arise mainly from the usually small size of the artefacts, the soft real-time performance requirements, and the need to avoid upsetting the task models of people.

Special Issue on "Ambient Ecologies"

In order for a new technology to become widespread, novel tools and objects that realize and support it must be developed. On the road to the realization of the Ambient Intelligence (AmI) vision, new technological artifacts have started to appear and change the nature of almost every human activity. As the computer disappears, new Smart Objects appear, augmented with Information and Communication Technology (ICT) components (i.e. sensors, actuators, processor, memory, wireless communication modules) and able to receive, store, process and transmit information. Recently, Smart Objects have become mobile by combining research results from Robotics. In addition to objects, spaces also undergo a change towards becoming Smart Environments, which offer a set of digital services by embedding sensing, actuating, processing and networking infrastructure in a physical space.

DAISy team's ontologies repository now available

DAISy team develops various ontlologies related to pervasive computing and ambient intelligent systems. Our ontologies are now accessible through our ontologies repository. You can browse the repository and use our ontologies. In case you want to contribute extensions and/or further development of DAISy team ontologies please sent your request  via email to ktogias@cti.gr .
