ITEA2 - GEODES (2008-2011)

Participants : Olivier Sentieys, Olivier Berder, Arnaud Carer, Jérôme Astier, Thomas Anger, Vivek Tovinakere-Dwarakanath, Mahtab Alam.

The GEODES (Global Energy Optimization for Distributed Embedded Systems) project 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 system levels, and notably emphasizes the distributed system view. GEODES is an ITEA2 project which involves partners from France, Austria, Italy and the Netherlands: Thales (FR, IT, NL), Sensaris (FR), CNRS (LEAT and IRISA) (FR), CETMEF/MARTEC (FR), Infineon (AU), Thomson (FR), TUV (AU), UAQ (IT), Phillips (NL), Organo (AU), TI-WMC (NL). In GEODES Cairn will provide to partners the PowWow very power sensor platform including reconfigurable hardware accelerators. CAIRN will also contribute on link and MAC layers strategies to a global optimization of the energy, and define and optimize advanced signal processing, error detection and correction and medium access (MAC) techniques in order to reduce the transmit power as well as the useless listening of the communication media. In particular, the case of cooperative strategies like cooperative MIMO or relaying techniques will be investigated.
