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

Description of the methodology
Description of the HYDRA methodology

Hydra enabled devices
Physical devices are the cornerstone of any application intending to implement the Hydra middleware. Any application using external devices such as energy meters, light control switches, blood pressure monitors, etc., will need to interface with the device through its communication interface, which will be greatly facilitated by using the Hydra middleware. A Hydra-enabled device contains a software representation in the network and can be discovered by other devices and make its functions accessible as Web Services to the application. A the time of writing (October 2010) 42 devices have been Hydra-enable and the list can be seen here.

Project overview
The HYDRA project aims to research, develop, and validate middleware for networked embedded systems that allows developers to develop cost-effective, high-performance ambient intelligence applications for heterogeneous physical devices.
