ITS-EASY is an industrial research school in Embedded Software and Systems, affiliated with the School of Innovation, Design and Engineering (IDT) at Malardalen University (MDH), as an integrated part of the MDH strategic research area Embedded Systems (ES).
ITS-EASY is a cooperation with MDH, KKS and ten industry partners.
ITS-EASY envisions to be a unique industrial research school par excellence in the Embedded Systems domain in Sweden. ITS-EASY is focused on topics of paramount importance for dominating parts of Swedish industry: Embedded Systems including Software-Intensive Systems, Dependable (reliable and safe) Systems, and Sensor Systems. The main industrial domains considered are automation, telecommunication and vehicles.
The primary topics covered by ITS-EASY are related to system and software engineering of embedded systems, with emphasis on
System and Software Evolution,
Testing and Monitoring,
Platform Virtualization, and
Data Acquisition and Processing.
