Lead application IoT systems for cooperative environmental monitoring

On the basis of our research, for example, a platform for wireless sensor networks is being developed that can be used to implement IoT systems that network independently, operate energy-efficiently and support different sensors and wireless technology. This makes it possible to quickly create solutions adapted to the respective problem for recording relevant sensor values in the environment and agriculture.

In the future, applications should become possible in which the measurement task is handed over to the IoT system and the execution of this task is delegated to the intelligence in the system. This will create a new generation of embedded systems that solve the problem cooperatively. For this purpose, information is exchanged internally within the network and external information is integrated.

Core topic

Analysis of distributed IoT systems

For complex distributed IoT systems, we model components for system-wide analysis of energy consumption. We put intelligence into the network, enable tasks to be solved flexibly and autonomously, and make individual functions portable and robust.

Service for R&D

Development of embedded systems

We develop embedded systems for you as complete solutions consisting of sensors and actuators, signal processing and communications technology as well as open-loop and closed-loop controls.

Core topic

Real-time data processing and communications

New hardware is usually not supported by operating systems for real-time tasks. We are researching which operating system can be implemented in which way for which real-time application and the hardware required there.

Research field

Smart distributed measurement and test systems

Integrated sensor ICs are the heart of sensor and measurement systems like wireless sensors, stationary or handheld devices. We are researching solutions for ever more powerful sensors with more intrinsic intelligence and task allocation in the network.
