The Centre for Research on Embedded Systems (CERES) is a research centre within the School of Information Technology at Halmstad University. The centre was initiated in 2003 and has been built up in close cooperation with industry and with support from The Knowledge Foundation.
The scientific focus of CERES is on Cooperating Embedded Systems, more specifically on enabling solutions for cooperating and high-performance embedded systems and their applications. The prioritized applications come from health care, traffic and transport, and advanced sensing and communication systems. The research projects provide knowledge (solutions, theories, methods and tools) to bridge the gap from basic enabling technologies to application domains. By this, CERES is intended to increase the competitiveness of Swedish industry.
