Where: Airbus Group, Innovations

What: Airbus Group Innovations (AGI) is a global network of Innovation Centres (IC) that works on the research and technology priorities of the Group. The different ICs are distributed in various areas of research across various location around the world. The 4th IC works on Data Driven Technologies, with locations in Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

IC4 in the UK consists of a number of research laboratories under two different departments. The Data Analysis and Interaction lab, in the Operational Intelligence department, looks into new techniques and algorithms to gain intelligence from various data sources, including humans and machines (e.g. health monitoring), the open Internet (e.g. sentiment analysis), manufacturing processes (e.g. engineering design), and many others. The lab also looks at novel ways of interacting and visualising information, including the use of Virtual Reality, serious games technologies, remote collaboration tools, etc.


Where: Distributed Information and Automation LaboratoryUniversity of Cambridge

What: DIAL, located in the Institute for Manufacturing ( IfM), is a centre dependent on the  Engineering Department of the University of Cambridge. DIAL is concerned with the using of new information technologies (capture, storage and management) in order to help companies to take advantage of the new opportunities in dynamic services and smart products. The head of DIAL is Prof. Duncan McFarlane.

    Five are DIAL's main research areas, identified by working closely with industrial partners:

  • RFID systems
  • Product information management
  • Distributed automation solutions
  • Quantifying the impact of RFID
  • Operations analysis
    DIAL's extensive interest in RFID and other automatic identification technologies comes from its tight relationship with Auto-ID LABS Cambridge, stablished in 2000 when it joined the Auto ID Center project (1999-2003). 

    Main research interests inside DIAL:

  • RFID and sensor integrations strategies, architectures and standards
  • Smart Objects and Smart Products
  • Multi-agent Systems adapted to manufacturing and complex machinery configuration and control


Where: Real-Time & Embedded Systems LaboratoryKAIST

What: The main effots of the Real-Time & Embedded Systems Lab, at KAIST ICC, are currently focussed on a novel and promissing technology called Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). The director of the RESL is Kim Daeyoung.

    A new platfor for WSN is being developed, under the name of ANTS (An evolvable Network of Tiny Sensors).

    RESL is a member of the AUTO-ID LABS KOREA, stablished in Spring 2005 in the Information and Communications University (now KAIST).
    RESL is also part of the USN (Ubiquitous Sensor Networks) /RFID Center stablished by the Government of Korea in ICU.
    RESL collaborated with NOKIA University Program in 2005/2006. This collaboration included the supervision on the development of Symbian OS-based applications and the teaching of Symbian related materials. 
    In July 2007, RESL was appointed National Research Laboratory under the name of "Global USN Laboratory" 

   Main research interests inside RESL:

  • WSN and RFID integration
  • Smart Environments and Personal delivery of Information. USN/RFID interaction
  • WSN Interoperability
  • Mobility in WSN
  • Embedded Systems Middleware

Other research interests

  • Computer clustering and Load Balancing
