Welcome to Smarcos Project!
Smarcos project aims to help users of interconnected embedded systems by ensuring their interusability.
Nowadays, many products connect with web services (media players, refrigerators).
This distributed computing is becoming the norm in embedded systems.
Smarcos allows devices and services to communicate in UI level terms and symbols, exchange context information, user actions, and semantic data.
It allows applications to follow the user's actions, predict needs and react appropriately to unexpected actions.
The use cases would be constructed around three complementary domains: attentive personal systems, interusable devices and complex systems control.
Several pilots would be carried out to implement the use cases. Smarcos is planning to run a large scale trial.
Along the project, several smaller prototypes will be implemented.
Our results will be applicable to all embedded systems that interact with their users, which is a substantial fraction of today's market.
