What is ACES?

The ACES (Ambient Computing and Embedded Systems) group is addressing research from two angles:
- System Support for Continuous Ambient Service Delivery. A user needs to be able to exploit ambient services as seamlessly as possible. In particular, he should be shielded from the effects of network breaks – something that can be quite common for wireless environments.
- Programming Models for Ambient Computing. We have looked at ways of modeling the physical environment in the virtual environment of programs in order to facilitate ambient application development. The goal is to be able to write programs that address and navigate through objects in the physical world as elegantly as a program traditionally manipulates a computer’s main memory.
