We are proud to announce that the current roadmap of the CONET project is published by the Springer Verlag. CONET, the Cooperating Objects Network of Ecxellence, funded by the 7th framework program of the European commission, focusses on enabling the further establishment of the field of Cooperating Objects within the research and industrial community, thus strengthening the position of Europe in the research landscape. Following with the work done as part of the Embedded WiSeNts project, the Cooperating Objects Network of Excellence will update every year its CONET Research Roadmap in order to keep it up to date with the latest research. Companies like SAP and Schneider Electric (among others) lead this effort and participate very strongly in the process of updating the roadmap.
