8th IEEE International Symposium on
Industrial Embedded Systems 19-21 June 2013, Porto, Portugal

Sponsored by: School of Engineering of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto (ISEP-IPP), and IEEE Industrial Electronics Society

Application domains have had a considerable impact on the evolution of embedded systems, in terms of required methodologies and supporting tools and resulting technologies. SoCs are slowly making inroads in to the area of industrial automation to implement complex field-area intelligent devices which integrate the intelligent sensor/actuator functionality by providing on-chip signal conversion, data processing, and communication functions. There is a growing tendency to network field-area intelligent devices around industrial type of communication networks. Similar trends appear in the automotive electronic systems where the Electronic Control Units (ECUs), typically implemented as heterogeneous system-on-chip, are networked by means of one of safety-critical communication protocols such as FlexRay, for instance, for the purpose of controlling one of vehicle functions; electronic engine control, ABS, active suspension, etc.
The design of this kind of networked embedded systems (this includes also hard real-time industrial control systems) is a challenge in itself due to the distributed nature of processing elements, sharing common communication medium, and safety-critical requirements, to mention some.

The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia and provide them with a platform to report on recent developments, deployments, technology trends and research results, as well as initiatives related to embedded systems and their applications in a variety of industrial environments.
