About Networked Intelligent Systems

NIS aims at creating autonomous networked intelligent hybrid systems enabled by ubiquitous sensing and information processing.

These systems should also be able to operate in extreme environments such as the deep sea or inside the human body. Examples of networked intelligent systems we aim to create include: underwater robotics for protecting the environment and exploiting resources, flying or terrestrial robotics for border surveillance, distributed robotics for monitoring intelligent cities, micro-robotics for monitoring human health, or distributed robotics for providing adaptive telecom infrastructures.

The development of such systems will probably lead to new results in the NIS Centres, including chemical and bio-sensors, bio instrumentation, high bitrate underwater communications systems, or positioning and navigation systems in the deep sea.
