- Welcome to the Computer Architecture for Embedded Systems (CAES) group of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science. The CAES group conducts research and education in computer architecture and computing systems with a particular emphasis on embedded systems.
Embedded systems are already commonplace, they provide the necessary control and integration of cyber-physical systems. In the last couple of decades, a larger portion of the world’s total computing power is taking place at the edge, motivated by broad concepts, such as the Internet-of-Things (IoT), machine learning, smart grids, and real-time and dependable systems. With different constraints in terms of power consumption, performance, reliability, and security, the understanding of the underlying computer architectures is vital for the efficient integration of these systems.
Our research goal is to investigate the challenges and opportunities in the intersection between CS and EE. This large scope allows our researchers to tackle real problems with a broad and systemic view, allowing for the development of new technologies, architectures, design automation tools, algorithms, methodologies, and models. This process requires knowledge from different domains in the hardware and software levels of abstraction, allowing ample space for our members to develop and collaborate internally and with external partners.
