The IST-MORE project (Network-centric Middleware for GrOup communication and Resource Sharing across Heterogeneous Embedded Systems) is a research project funded by the European Union during the 6th Framework Program. The project builds upon recent approaches in embedded systems research implementing a middleware to overcome the heterogeneity of available network technologies. MORE implements a new service environment to facilitate communication and distributed intelligence across groups of users using different wireless standards. It addresses the problem of how the interaction between groups of humans and embedded systems can be efficiently supported by developing a system that can be easily tailored to the specific needs of diverse application areas. The project targets the design of a web service based middleware that hides the complexity of the underlying heterogeneity of embedded systems through providing simplified APIs and management mechanisms for future operators utilizing the MORE middleware.
Project duration: 01.06.2006 bis 31.05.2009
