Telematics research is the creation of new knowledge about networks and networked services, encompassing technology, society, and economics. The research within the Department of Telematics has focus on the technology aspects, which can be described in two dimensions: a system and a discipline dimension. The system dimension represents the knowledge about the architecture of networks and networked services. The discipline dimension represents knowledge about the methods and tools - including mathematics and languages - needed for the specification, design, construction, implementation and validation of networks and networked services.
The research is organised in three research areas:
- Networks (Coordinator: Professor Yuming Jiang) has focus on Dependability and performance of Access networks and Core networks.
- Networked Systems (Architecture and Engineering of Networked Service and Multimedia Systems) (Coordinator: Professor Peter Herrmann) has focus on Systems Engineering of Services and applications and Distributed platforms.
- Information Security (Coordinator: Professor Stig F. Mjølsnes) has focus on Information security in Services and applications, Distributed platforms and Core networks.
The research activities are partly part of the research in Q2S. There is also cooperation between neighboring departments.
