The fundamental objective of this project is to demonstrate and implement a new applied technology in telephony. This technology distributes intelligence and autonomy through a communications network by means of interfaces for the participating telephonic circuits of any telephone system to share and inter-relate all the internal and external states to be controlled by a communications network specially developed for this purpose. The technology displays high performance, with speed in the interoperability of all the components of the network. In addition, the control of the process is entirely decentralized. Each active element or sensor works independently while being at the same time integrated to the other devices present in the network. The main advantage of the system is low amount of wiring and cabling and it can be applied in a modular manner, decreasing maintenance costs. Telecommunications, residential automation, commercial and industrial sectors are the targets initially envisaged for the application of this system. The present project is studying the methodology and modeling for the development of any control system based on the concept of distributed network control, in any field of application. (AU)
