Welcome to the homepage of the LOEWE – Research Priority Program Cocoon
I welcome you to the homepage of the LOEWE Research Priority Program “Cooperative sensor communication = Cocoon“.
The Priority Program was established officially on 1 January 2011 and is funded with an amount of 4.5 million Euro for 3 years by the State of Hesse. The grant was secured within the frame of the third round of the research support program LOEWE-Landes-Offensive zur Entwicklung Wissenschaftlich-ökonomischer Exzellenz.
Research in the field of wireless sensor communication will enable us to make an essential contribution to the improvement of our daily life. Sensors we consider in our research include environmental sensors, mobile phones, PDAs, navigation equipment, car keys, electronic purses or pulse rate measurement devices. New diverse applications, which can be integrated into the context of a smart city, will arise. This concept requires an intelligent environment in which daily life supporting services are ubiquitous.
The homepage gives you an overview about the wide-ranging interdisciplinary research program. I would like to invite you to consult these pages and to inform yourself about the research program. I look forward to any suggestion you may have.
