Sensor Middleware Unit

Sensor Middleware Unit (USM) - We work on enabling Semantic Reality by means of very large infrastructures integration of the physical world and computers on a global scale (virtual world) that facilitates the information-driven real-time.
 At USM we look at the engineering side and deploying of software systems in a large degree of self-organization and automation capabilities building into the software systems and its constituents, enabling simple deployment (plug-and-play), dynamic (re-) configuration, flexible component and information integration, and tailored information delivery based on user context and needs in a service-oriented way. 

We are experts on semantic descriptions - annotation - transformation - management and visualization of the user needs and their contexts, and also of the system's constituents, the data streams they produce, their functionalities and their requirements to enable a machine-understandable information space of real-world entities and their dynamic communication processes on a scale which is beyond the current size of the Internet.

Our intern students, MSc. PhD. students and research visitors specialize on the different aspects in the following areas:

* Linked Data Streams Management, Processing and Visualization.

* Large-scale Semantics-enabled Distributed Information Systems and Applications.

* Query Language Modeling and processing

* Semantic Sensor Networks and Sensor Network Middleware(s)

* Information Exchange and Integrated Management

* Service-oriented architectures (SOA).

* Distributed Systems and Interoperability,

* Ontology Engineering and Semantic Solutions.
