Communications and Embedded Systems (COMES) Group

Director: Theodore Antonakopoulos, Professor.

The Communications and Embedded Systems (COMES) Group specializes on providing Research and Development (R&D) and consulting services for organizations and companies of the public and private sector, in Greece and abroad. Its main research activities are on hardware synthesis and design, embedded systems development and communication systems engineering. COMES groupís multidisciplinary personnel of nine engineers, gained valuable experience through long term collaborations with research centres in Europe and USA. The quality of knowledge desired, was also built on participating in large European research projects (ESPRIT, RACE, LION, MAX, DAMS, ACTS, COBUCO, DISTIMA, PANORAMA etc.), as well as in development programs for the Greek Government and the European industrial sector. COMES groupís experience on rapid system prototyping of various communication technologies results to short development time from system specifications to fully tested prototypes. Providing state-of-the-art innovative solutions with high quality fully documented results, remains the COMES groupís main objective.
