Efficient Integrated Real-time Monitoring and Control of Drinking Water Networks


This project addressed three main management problems in urban water system: optimal operational control, real-time monitoring and demand forecasting/management. Real-time optimal control deals with operating the main flow and pressure actuators to meet demands using the most sustainable sources and minimizing electricity costs and is tackled using stochastic model predictive control techniques. Real-time monitoring of water quantity...

Reliable Manycore Chips


REMACORE project investigated the design of reliable next-generation manycore chips. The project proposed a resilient system architecture and operation, where both design correctness (HW verification) and fabrication correctness (manufacturing test) were performed dynamically, during the life-time of the chip. A number of self-testing and fault-tolerant design mechanisms were introduced for each...

Multicasting and group casting with physical layer constraints in metropolitan optical networks with mesh topologies


MULTIOPTI project investigated the problems of routing, grooming, and survivability for transparent optical networks that support unicast, multicast, as well as groupcast applications. In these transparent networks, where the signal stays in the optical domain for the entire path, efficient routing and wavelength assignment of multicast and groupcast connections become extremely important especially...
