VTT designs software for platforms ranging from highly resource constraint
embedded systems like sensor motes to systems with significant computing
resources such as mobile phones. VTT has a track record not only in software
development for different operating/runtime systems but also in analysing,
visualising, and enhancing the performance of embedded platforms with the main
focus on energy efficiency.
The forecast of the energy demand of mobile devices by the Boston Consulting on the left shows the importance of energy efficiency for future embedded systems.
More and more everyday objects are equipped with computing functionality
through embedded systems. These heterogeneous systems make great demands on
transition from single-core to multi-core to many-core processors
