Enea Joins Innovative Centre for Embedded Systems (ICES)

Nordic technology center to focus on system construction, architecture, and methodology for telecom, automotive, medical and automation applications

Stockholm, Sweden, and San Jose, Calif.,- September 23, 2008 - Enea® (Nordic Exchange/Small Cap/ENEA), a world leading provider of network software and services, today announced that it has joined the Innovative Centre for Embedded Systems (ICES) as one of the founding members. Started by the KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm on September 3, the ICES is a collaboration between academia and industry aimed at elevating the state of the art in embedded system design. 

The ICES seeks to strengthen the ties between universities, industry and international research, with a goal of establishing the ICES as a preeminent research, education, and commercial development center for embedded system design, architecture and methodology. Building on a network of ongoing research projects in the Stockholm, Södertälje and Västerås areas, the ICES will focus on telecom, automation, automotive, and medical technology applications. Within ten years, the founders expect the ICES to emerge as the world's leading center of embedded systems technology development. 

"Much of the pioneering commercial technology in use today has its roots in academic research," said  Barbro Claesson, project leader at Enea. "We are excited to be a part of the ICES, and look forward to contributing the extensive product, system, training, and professional services expertise we have acquired working in the telecom, automotive, plant control, and medical technology industries." 

ICES is the brainchild of Martin Törngren, a professor in the mechatronics department at KTH. At his disposal will be a board of directors led by Tor Eriksson from ÅF. Joining Mr. Eriksson on the board are Jan Wiklander, Karl-Henrik Johansson, Patrik Jensfelt and Axel Jantsch from KTH, Jan-Erik Frey from ABB, Barbro Claesson from Enea, Hans Schmekel from Ericsson and Tony Sandberg from Scania. 

"Our biggest challenge is bridging the gap between the business and university world and achieving an environment where specialized research, education and industrial development come together," said Martin Törngren. 

On September 3, at the ICES kickoff event, Ed Brinksma from the Embedded Systems Institute in Holland spoke about some of the challenges facing embedded designers and gave a short presentation detailing some of his research programs. In addition, Bazmi Husain, provided an overview of the research efforts at ABB, Jan Danielsson spoke about embedded development at Scania, and Kjell Gustafsson from Ericsson Mobile Platforms spoke about some of the more vexing challenges he has faced developing components for cell phones.
