Purpose and goal
The GEODES project (Global Energy Optimisation for Distributed Embedded Systems) will provide design techniques, embedded software and accompanying tools needed to face the challenge of allowing long power-autonomy of features rich and connected embedded systems, which are becoming pervasive and whose usage is significantly rising. It approaches this challenge by considering all systems levels, and notably emphasises the distributed system view. GEODES project relies on thorough expertise from its consortium, constituted by enabling technologies providers, end users, which are supported by research centers.
Expected results and effects
GEODES intends to cover more generally the following aspects: Power aware protocols Power aware operating systems Middleware developments (QoS) Low power compilation System level modeling (SystemC)
Planned approach and implementation
Specification: Identify the necessary common requirements to enable global energy optimisation by defining specific use case methodology focused on real deployment scenarios. Node level energy optimisation: Investigation of effective management strategies for nodes. Sensor Network Energy Optimisation:The Task will provide an integrated architecture that will support distributed methods and algorithms required for network energy analysis and optimisation. Integration, validation and demonstrations: To validate the energy optimisation techniques, at the node and network levels.
