Creating Ubiquitous Intelligent Sensing Applications (CRUISE), European Network of Excellence (NoE)

Funding: European Commission, FP6-NoE, European Network of Excellence

Principal Investigator: Prof. Baltasar Beferull-Lozano

Topic: The Network of Excellence (NoE) CRUISE intends to be a focal point in the planning and coordination of research on communication and application aspects of wireless sensor networking in Europe. It brings together a diverse group of partners who integrate their expertise and knowledge gained in projects on related fields. CRUISE partners share the vision of ubiquitous intelligent sensing environments and are convinced that a NoE in this field is necessary, taking into account the benefits that sensor networks have to offer to European society and the current weakness and fragmentation in this field in Europe. CRUISE partners closely work on the joint programme of activities specified in this proposal, a crucial part of which is the creation of a state-of-the-art Knowledge Base, available to the general public. Our joint work consists of information collection, comparison, validation and dissemination. CRUISE focuses its research toward the solution of specific theoretical and technological problems that will enable the building of sensor network applications that can significantly affect European society. spreading results to the general public.
