Networked Embedded Systems

Project: Research area

Project Details


Modern embedded systems typically consist of multiple computers that are connected by a wireless or wired network. Sensor networks, Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems are all examples of this type of technology. The Networked Embedded Systems working group, headed by Prof. Dr. Kay Römer, investigates design, implementation, and test of such systems with special emphasis on networking and software engineering aspects. Typical challenges that need to be tackled are the openness and dynamicity of such embedded networks, resource and energy constraints, harsh environmental conditions, and the need for dependable operation despite these difficulties. The working group focuses on experimental research, where concepts are transformed into realistic prototypes that are used in experiments to assess the properties and performance of the concepts.
