Research Teams

Distributed Real Time Systems

The “Intelligent and Distributed Control Systems” research group is constituted by 10 researchers/lecturers and they have developed their research for 10 years. During these years the team has developed his expertise in Artificial Intelligence techniques (Neural nets, Bayesian nets, Genetic Algorithms and Use Cases),  Design and Development of Distributed Systems integrating Communications (networks and buses), Real Time OS, UML-based MDD and Distributed and Concurrent programming. The research developed by this team has a clear direction and integration with industry needs by participating in numerous projects with companies.

Research Areas

  • Intelligent Systems for the Health Industry

It focuses on data analysis to aid decision making and improving the quality of life of patients and healthcare professionals. To do so, we use pattern recognition and human behavior prediction techniques are used to help prevent disease, or improve quality of life.

Heterogeneous data sources are used following the Big Data paradigm, using medical histories, personal data or environmental data as some examples.
  • Distributed Control Systems
Specialization in three key areas in the Design and Development of Distributed Control Systems: Reliability, Predictability and Control Optimization and Scheduling
Moreover, the development of this research is oriented to embedded systems with reliability and real-time requirements across all the components of a distributed system, such as: communications, operating systems, and middleware.
