ICT-eMuCo addresses the platform architecture of future mobile devices. This comprises the relevant controller elements as well as the operating system and application layers. It is expected that the computational performance needed by these devices will grow exponentially due to the growing number of features implemented and the advances in the wireless communication standards. The fast growing number of applications and the resulting diversification requires a co-existence of open and protected environments.
It is therefore proposed to choose a multi-core architecture to get the best ratio of performance and power consumption while maintaining a high flexibility and scalability in the system through variations in number of cores, cache sizes, clock speeds etc. Existing multi-cores are taken as a starting point for the controller architecture. The actual implementation of e. g. the cache and memory system will be optimised to the specific needs as well as the extension by hardware accelerators for dedicated tasks.
Virtualisation technology will be employed to abstract the applications including potential legacy operating systems from the hardware architecture. This provides the means to separate real-time from non-real-time and secure from open domains. To account for the embedded nature of mobile devices and its limitations in performance and power consumption the virtualisation functionalities are supported by hardware where appropriate.
The awareness for the existence of multi-cores must also arise at the programmer's level. This is taken care of by a modeldriven code generation technology based on SDL for typical communications protocol tasks and UML for the application development and modelling.

Wireless networks of sensors and smart devices (WSN) are an extremely interesting topic, at the confluence of engineering fields with enormous impact on worldwide society: digital networks, wireless communications, and miniature embedded digital devices.

Aware of the severe requirements and challenges raised by current applications in this area, we propose a new paradigm - Time and Energy Efficiency (T: or TEE). The goal of the project is to develop an integrated real-time and energy efficient inter-operation framework for networks of smart sensors and devices - TEEFIOS.

The main proposed objectives focus on three distinct layers: (a) T:Node, a hardware-software environment and methodology for designing and assessing real-time behavior and efficient energy consumption of embedded devices, (b) T:YNet, a system for the development and analysis of TEE communication in wireless ad-hoc networks, and (c) T:PIlot, a methodology for the power management of the entire network. An integrated set of tools, benchmarks and databases will also be created to help advanced developers and researchers in the WSN area apply the TEE paradigm to applications with high impact. All the results will be validated using real-life case studies.

Existing resources include a postdoc and PhD students with direct interest in these fields, balanced by senior researchers with high expertise and international visibility, all supported by a well equipped environment - the DSPLabs.

Wavelet Transform; Power quality; Monitoring systems; Power efficiency; Industrial consumers
Power systems are facing major challenges nowadays. Power electronics technologies and microprocessor control systems improved the performances of the equipment that uses them. Their features generate a double dependency: on one hand, the new installations became highly sensitive to power supply quality and on the other hand, their functioning principle determines the change of this quality.
The research in the field of numerical algorithms development and implementation for power quality (CEE) and the disturbance decrease/limitation becomes more attractive and many producers integrate the monitoring functions in their products. A CEE monitoring system must possess two qualities: real time measurement of the disturbed network power parameters and calculation of quality indices and power components according to the suitable definitions. It is a fact that the Fourier technique is used to define a large number of power components (Standard IEEE 1459-2000). The representation given by the Fourier technique in non-sinusoidal and non-linear environments is not sufficient. The wavelet transform can solve the loss of time information problem. Recently, the wavelet transform is used to define power components and quality indices in time-frequency domain and to spot network deviations.
The general objective of the project consists in the improvement of technological competence and the promotion of power information and technologies transfer using long-lasting power technologies and systems in reference to the improvement of power conversion equipment and systems competitivity. The derived objectives: 1. Increase the CDI sector capacity regarding the knowledge sustaining of society and economy; 2. Increase the technological competence and the promotion of power information and technologies transfer taking into account quality and power supply criteria and durable development principle; 3. Design environment friendly products, systems and technologies; 4. Initiate a STREP proposal to participate in Program Frame 7 and/or other research European and international programs. The projest is achieved by a group of CNCSIS approved research centres, universities (Suceava, Iasi, Timisoara), a reserch institute (ICPE SA) and an IMM economic agent (S.C. Technosoft International SRL). All parteners are doing research work in power quality, power efficiency increase and focus on industrial consumers power loss reduction. The dissemination of the project results consists of: (1) an EPO patent proposal, (2) publish at least 3/8 papers in ISI journals / journals indexed in international databases , (3) participate in international conferences and symposiums with at least 10 papers, (4) create a monography and mention the contribution of research parteners in CEE monitoring systems, (5) initiate a PC7 participation proposal regarding the CEE and power converters improvement. We intend to encourage and actively involve the doctoral students in the project activities since at least 30% of the project participants and beneficiaries are under 35 years old. The theoretical concepts that we proposed in the project have been presented in papers that are published or accepted to be published in ISI and BDI indexed journals. Our proposal fits in Research Direction 2: Energy, 2.1. Durable power systems and technologies; power security, 2.1.3. Power efficiency increase in the whole power distribution system with special attention payed to power loss reduction in public and residential buildings and industrial consumers.
We consider the project theme to be of great novelty and in accordance with the international trends and also able to stimulate the CEE activity in our country.

In an effort to improve the operating efficiency and performance, the modern turbo-machines and various systems with engineering fluids are pushing the limits of the flowing field closer and even beyond severe self-inducted instability. A classic example can be found in the case of hydraulic turbines, which frequently imply unexpected and possibly destructive secondary effects into the suction tube when repairing the rotors. Furthermore, even in the case of older hydraulic turbines, the unbalanced energy market of today frequently requires their operation at partial loads. As a result, the

Geodata platform; .NET-based applications; GIS information; Project-based environment
GeoData Platform, codenamed AURORA, is a standalone Microsoft .NET-based Windows application, designed for handling geodata (GIS data), using a project-based environment. As a GIS platform, it must provide the following range of functions, accessible to the user via a Graphical User Interface (GUI):
1. import and export from and to various raster and vector geodata formats;
2. visualization of geodata, using a layer-based display with geocoding between layers;

Project PEARL is meant to be the starting point for developing a system that represents a proof of concept for the scheduling and simulation domains. If the concept proves successful further possibilities for enhancing it exist both from technology and conceptual point of view.
The scope of this project is basically to build a system made out of two components:
T1) one for implementing and running the scheduling algorithms, and
T2) the other to simulate the execution of production orders according to the architecture of the production lines and the scheduling plan created by the first component.
The objectives of the project are : to analyze the performance of scheduling algorithms, with an accent on multi-criterium flexible optimization, possibilities for real-time rescheduling and to provide data regarding production KPIs extracted from the simulation model.
The deliverables for this project consist of two categories namely: running software and documents (electronic or hard copy). The term Running Software means: the scheduling and simulation system, test code, installation scripts and third party components used by our system. The documentation should include all documents related to the development process (requirements, architecture, design, test scripts etc.) and other studies, interesting articles or references. For each phase we must create a document that presents accomplishments, problems that we haven't been able to solve properly or at all, and two chapters that describe the project realizations from the scheduling and simulation point of views.
