The Institute for Systems Engineering focuses on the modelling, simulation, analysis, and implementation of complex hardware and software systems. The institute consists of three research groups with four professors. Currently, the institute is lead by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Daniel Lohmann.
Real-Time Systems (RTS)
Leader: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bernardo Wagner
The Real-Time Systems group focuses on the planning, modelling and analysis of complex technical systems. The respective applications cover system automation with industrial programmable logic controllers, event discrete (reactive) control of autonomous mobile robots with integrated microcontrollers and real-time operating systems as well as 3D environment perception, localization and path finding for mobile robots. Formal methods, as well as other software development methods, are used to design these systems under the aspects of real-time capability, reliability and safety.
Energy Informatics (EI)
Leader: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Astrid Nieße
The group Energy Informatics deals with the interdisciplinary research field of the digitalization of energy systems. Dedicated to a resilient operation of the energy system, we are mainly motivated by the ambition to support and alleviate the transition to a sustainable system based on renewable energy sources. New information technology based approaches can be a game changer in this process. A wonderful challenge for algorithm development, modeling, simulation and system integration experts!
Systems Research and Architecture (SRA)
Leader: Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Daniel Lohmann
The activities of the Systems Research and Architecture group are centered around the architecture of computing systems: From hardware over system software up to languages and compilers with a focus on constructive methods for the design and development of adaptable and versatile system software.
