Research Areas -> Software Systems -> Operating Systems and Distributed Systems
 
Overview
Operating systems and distributed systems research is tackling exciting new problems that span the gamut from embedded systems and sensor networks to Internet-scale distributed systems. Operating systems have become pervasive in our daily lives, controlling not just traditional computers, but also consumer electronics devices and cyber-physical systems such as automobiles and power grids. Research projects at the University of Michigan are investigating how to make computers more reliable, more secure, faster, scalable, and easier to use via new services such as deterministic replay and speculative execution.
