Leiden Embedded & Real-time Computing (LERC)
Leiden Embedded & Real-time Computing (LERC) is an expert lab and leader in advanced research on embedded and real-time systems and software. The main mission of LERC is by its research to contribute in a highly innovative way to the system-level design of embedded and cyber-physical systems and software -- conceptually (theory), methodologically (design methods and tools), and structurally (platforms/architectures).
The LERC lab researches Cyber-Physical Systems, which are application-domain specific, information processing systems that are tightly coupled to the physical environment. More specifically, they have been investigating and devising fundamental methods and model-based techniques as well as implementing them in software tools for the specification, design and development, programming, and verification of Embedded Systems-on-Chip (SoC).
