The CTSYS research group : Embedded System Design and Test
The CTSYS research group investigations focus on the design of embedded and distributed systems with a strong emphasis on dependability, which is a major issue in applications of high criticality (telecommunications, air transportation, railway, automobile, etc.).
The common goal of CTSYS researchers is achieving dependable systems using approaches contributing to the fault elimination, fault tolerance or fault prediction using fault models.
Additionnally, CTSYS has skills in embedded system design, especially when systems are subjected to severe resource (memory, energy consumption ...) or security constrains.
There is a wide variety of embedded systems, so approaches developed within CTSYS include distributed systems with low stress, heterogeneous system including software, digital and analog hardware, or mechanical components.
