Ambient Intelligence covers diverse research domains and applications so there are naturally a number of challenges in hardware design, software architecture and digital data processing to provide the seamless interaction we want to provide.

Platform solutions should really provide scientists with modularity and flexibility of integration, horizontal scalability and fast and simple deployment. These solutions support the early design stages, the experimental and testing phases right up to final delivery of applications and components.

The platform group at LABS has adopted a micro-service Architectural style (MSA), combining modern patterns, tools and technologies to design and implement applications composed of independent, modular and self-contained services.
