The technology of “embedded systems”, which is a computer system embedded in various equipment and machines that help control them, is a very important technology to support our country’s manufacturing industry. For example, many computers are embedded in modern automobiles for various purposes. Embedded system technology is indispensable for the advancement of the automobile industry.
The Center for Embedded Computing Systems (NCES) was established in April, 2006 as an attached center of the Graduate School of Information Science due to the strong demand from the industry for technology and human resource development in the field of embedded systems. The Center aims to formulate the research and educational bases for embedded system technology through collaboration with the industry. To date, we have worked on a number of research and human resource development projects. In particular, we are focusing on consortium-type collaborative research, in which more than one companies take part in the research and development project set up by NCES.
