The Embedded System Group at the University of Trento

Welcome to the website of the Embedded Electronics and Computing Systems (EECS) Group of the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Trento, Trento, Italy. From this website you can:


  • have an overview of our educational and research activities;
  • download papers and research results.

    Embedded systems are usually referred to as processing systems  tailored for specific applications. Nowadays, embedded systems are used  in  many  different fields  such as automotive, robotics, telecommunications, consumer electronics, domotics, biomedical equipment and instrumentation.

    According to some recent market analyses, the global market for embedded systems has been constantly growing and it is expected to increase from $92.0 billion in 2008 to an estimated $112.5 billion by the end of 2013, with a compound annual growth rate of 4.1%. Our mission is to develop innovative systems and design methodologies for specific applications, often with challenging constraints in terms of processing time as well as energy or cost requirements. Embedded system design relies on both hardware and software technologies and it requires multidisciplinary skills.
