Industrial Networks Transparency

When considering several industrial applications and different industrial sites one has to deal with a vast variety of industrial networks; some of them conforming to the published industrial network standards while others completely proprietary. This research project tries to connect this vast variety of industrial networks and provide a uniform way of accessing devices attached to them. The access and programming of these devices will be made via a standard Jini/Java interface. Note that since these industrial networks often control real-time applications the target hardware must offer both real-time and quality of service services by providing for example ATM channels, while in parallel providing a uniform programmable interface towards the Jini/Java interface operator.
