Major Research Projects

The links below will give you an overview over major research project our chair is or has been part of.

BEST Energy

BEST Energy is a project to improve the energy efficiency in buildings, which project belongs to the ICT Policy Support Programme.

The CarOLO project on autonomous driving

In the context of the CarOLO project, the SE chair developed Caroline, a fully autonomous car, which allowed us to take part in the Darpa Urban Challenge. Caroline managed to win 7th place, was the best newcomer in the competition and our chair became the best non-american team (see also Darpa Grand Challenge).

Collaborative Embedded Systems (CrESt)

In the CrESt research project, 23 partners from industry and research investigate how to reliably engineer the software of the future's smart, distributed CPS. We investigate modeling techniques, methods, and processes to manage the complexity of engineering software for dynamically coupled, automated CPS. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).

Intelligente modulare Serviceroboter-Funktionalitäten im menschlichen Umfeld am Beispiel von Krankenhäusern (iserveU)

In iserveU, we explore model-driven engineering methods for service robotics applications in dynamic environments with a consortium of three companies and four universities. We develop a family of integrated MontiCore modeling languages to describe, plan, and execute robotics tasks without in-depth programming expertise. Models of these languages are used by a MontiArc software architecture which integrated robotics middlewares to, ultimately, operate service robots in a German hospital. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).
