Hydra is affilliated with the following programs and organisations:

The Hydra coordinater FhG FIT is a member of ARTEMISIA, the association for R&D actors in the field of ARTEMIS: Advanced Research & Technology for EMbedded Intelligence and Systems.

The Hydra middleware allows developers to create inclusive applications with a high degree of accessibility for all. The Hydra project supports the Commissions campaign: eInclusion - be part of it!

The Hydra project is part of the Cluster of European projects on the Internet of Things. The Cluster aims to promote a common vision of the Internet of Things.

The Hydra project is co-funded by the European Commission within the Sixth Framework Programme in the area of Networked Embedded Systems under contract IST-2005-034891

* User domain related projects - Home Automation
TEAHA - The European Application Home Alliance
TEAHA is a strategic project. It addresses networked home control applications and their complementarity to A/V networked applications. Its objective is to work with the A/V world to specify an open, secure, interoperable and seamless global home platform.

AMIGO - Ambient intelligence for the networked home environment
Amigo is an integrated project that will realize the full potential of home networking to improve people’s lives.  Home networking has already emerged in specific applications such as PC to PC communication and home entertainment systems, but its ability to really change people’s lives is still dogged by complex installation procedures, the lack of interoperability between different manufacturer’s equipment and the absence of compelling user services.

HOMETALK - A Voice Enabled Residential Automation & Networking platform
HomeTalk creates a truly intelligent user-friendly residential environment, connected to a broadband network, equipped with advanced domestic appliances, controlled via powerline by a multifunctional residential gateway/controller and capable of communicating with the residents via natural voice interface (recognition and synthesis).

INSPIRE - INfotainment management with SPeech interaction via REmote-microphones and telephone interfaces
INSPIRE will combine leading-edge technology & experience gained from previous projects to provide natural spoken dialogue interaction to infotainment (information & entertainment) devices installed in a smart home environment. It will use wireless hardware for I/O, robust speech understanding, room acoustics signal processing, speaker recognition and advanced personalization features.

I’MOK - Intelligent monitoring of kitchens
The consortium will develop a high performance, distributed, real-time, low-cost, fully configurable system that supports 'plug and play' installation, monitoring and control of catering equipment (I'MOK Compliant Route-map) at both a kitchen specific level (LAN Control Station) and across networks of food establishments (WAN Control Station). This will automate device status, intelligent monitoring and control to leverage a step-change in operational efficiency leading to an increase in compliance with safe food storage and cooking procedures, resulting in a significant reduction in the build up of harmful bacteria, energy wastage and cost associated with utilisation of catering equipment in diverse kitchen environments.  

RUNES - Reconfigurable Ubiquitous Networked Embedded Systems
Its main objective is to design a middleware system that is adaptive and intelligently self-organizing. RUNES investigates and develops solutions for supporting applications and services running on heterogeneous architectures of networked embedded systems.

ESTIA - Enhanced networked environment for personalised provision of AV content and appliances control information
It focuses on the design and development of technologies for efficient personalised management of audiovisual content and white goods functions, locally within the home. This goal will be achieved by specifying the required resources at network infrastructure, communications components (residential gateways and communication interfaces), machine-to-machine, middleware and service levels, with a view to enable seamless audiovisual content manipulation on users terminals in personalised manner.
