Autonomous Driving – Looking for PhD. Students

Two German universities and two industrial companies plan to conduct the HarMobi (Harmonizing Mobility) project together from December 2022. HarMobi aims to create a new basis for evaluating conflicts between different road users. Sensor and traffic flow data from bicycles, e-scooters and motor vehicles serve to determine the behavior of road users as well as the influence of the infrastructure. This new type of data shall be fed into a learning system to better assess the safety impact for future traffic developments and planning.

For this project, the Cyber-Physical Mobility group is currently looking for motivated graduates in technical fields interested in doing a Ph.D. at the Chair of Computer Science 11 - Embedded Software.

i11 Wishes You a Merry Christmas

We have experienced a lot in 2022. Above all, we have revived the life and the personal cooperation at the chair, which we unfortunately were not able to experience in the previous years. For this we thank all staff and students. We are grateful to all our partners or the good cooperation and the successful year 2022. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


SOMC: Dynamic software for dynamic systems

The Chair of Computer Science 11 - Embedded Software (i11) collaborates with the Institute of Automatic Control (IRT, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering) on the new project Service-Oriented Model-based Control (SOMC) funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG). By tightly coupling software engineering and control theory, a service-oriented architecture (SOA) should improve the flexibility and maintainability of control systems. This architecture enables the control system to adapt to situations not foreseen at design time by exchanging control components dynamically at runtime.

The i11 explores a SOA fit for the requirements of real-time, embedded control systems while enabling the necessary flexibility. The IRT develops the required models and investigates stability conditions for switching between control components.

The proposal was submitted by Dr.-Ing. Bassam Alrifaee (head of the Cyber-Physical Mobility Group at i11) and Dr.-Ing. Lorenz Dörschel (IRT). The research associates Ole Greß, M. Sc. (i11) and Markus Zimmer, M. Sc. (IRT) are working on the project.
