Projects
FACT (Flexible Autonomic Context Technologies)
This project aims at the development of systems that are able to manage themselves and adapt to their environment. IT components are embedded in everyday objects and enabled to communicate with each other.

Funding: Industrial Cooperation

Duration: 2007 - still in progress
