Section: Application Domains

Smart environments and Internet of Things

Another application domain for autonomic systems design and control is the Internet of Things, and especially the design of smart environments, at the level of homes, buildings, or cities. These domains are often considered at the level of sensors networks, with a strong emphasis on the acquisition of data in massive scales. The infrastructures are sometimes also equipped with actuators, with a wide range of applications, for example concerning lighting or heating, or access and security aspects. We are interested in closing the control loop in such environments, which is less often studied. In particular, rule-based languages are often used to define the automated systems, and we want to contribute to the safe design of such controllers with guarantees on their behaviors. We are working in this topic in cooperation with teams specialized in infrastructures for smart environments at CEA LETI/DACLE and Orange labs (see 8.1 , 8.2 ).
