University of Rostock

The Institute of Applied Microelectronics and Computer Engineering is well-established in the fields of development of distributed embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, device-level service oriented architectures and circuit design. Several DFG (German Research Foundation) projects and a DFG-funded research training group are currently being worked on in the institute, and furthermore also ITEA/BMBF and industry funded projects are being carried out. Within the interdisciplinary profile line „Successful Aging“ of the university of rostock the institute is involved with the development of assistive systems for the improvement of diagnostics and care for patients with neuro-degenerative diseases and cognitive dysfunctions. The institute was involved in the ITEA/BMBF projects SIRENA (2004-2006) und LOMS (2006-2008). In these projects Web Service software solutions based on the DPWS specification for embedded systems where developed for the first time, and their effiency demonstrated. Currently this work is continued in the ITEA/BMBF projects OSAMI and uSERVICE with focus on the eHealth/AAL field of application. The results of these projects will be exploited through the WS4D Open Source Initiative (Web Services for Devices, and are already in use in several BMBF funded projects in the medical field. The institute is actively involved in the development of interoperability standards in the framework of OASIS and IETF.
