Centre of Real Time Computer Systems (CRTCS) performs applied leading research on smart environments and Internet of Things and Services (IoT&S). Scientists of the Centre participate in international and national projects and actively cooperate with companies around the world. Projects “GALA” and “TV MOZAIKA” were implemented in cooperation with TEO LT AB, content distribution system “AXMEDIS” was created in cooperation with foreign partners. Centre cooperates with Aalborg University, London City University, Technical University of Denmark, Darmstadt University and their research centres. It maintains contacts with companies Siemens, Philips, Advantech, Analog Devices, Texas Instruments, Microsoft, Intermedix.
Since the year 2000, Centre performs research on smart homes. Methods, algorithms and technologies, created by the scientists of CRTCS, enable implementation of innovative systems of smart environments, smart systems and IoT, as well as home systems with services designed for them. Implemented projects of future home equipment and high technologies include a digital home system, integrated health promotion system “Gudris”, smart kitchen system “Fėja”, prototype e-refrigerator and innovative technologies and services for home smart environments that make decisions independently according to user’s habits.
Innovations created at the Centre are based on an open architecture model, which allows integration of various third party services – thus creating new business models for potential providers of services for smart environments.
Products created, designed and manufactured at the Centre are competitive, distinguished by intellectual solutions, increased functionality and lower price. Majority of Lithuanian companies are interested in mass designing and production of products, however, the access to real time systems design is difficult for them, therefore, Centre, which has designing technologies and employs highly qualified specialists, can offer these services.
CRTCS organizes consultations for specialists of industrial companies as a one-stop-shop via the open access of National Innovation and Entrepreneurship Centre (NIEC) at the valley Santaka.
CRTCS scientists and researchers have expertise in the following areas: modelling and creation of smart environment and smart house systems; Internet of Things and Services; modelling and creation of embedded systems; agent and multi-agent systems; artificial intellect and decision making; formal modelling and extensive experience in designing, creation and installation of various IT solutions.
