New Project: Arrowhead Tools
At the chair starts on June 1, 2019, a new project: Arrowhead Tools. The project is funded by the EU and the BMBF under the coordination of ECSEL. It is one of the largest EU research projects in this program, costing € 100 million. In particular, the chair contributes to the project modeling and diagnostic methods in the Digital Twin. In this context, three open E13 posts are to be filled.
The chair of Cyber-Physical Systems has a new project funded by BMBF. The work at the chair are the most central part of the German 23 Mio. € Lighthouse project GENIAL! 4-5 Ph.D and a Post-Doc at the chair will investigate new means for the agile development of automotive systems over the next 5 years. The main challenge is the co-operation and co-ordination of requirements solicitation, specification and production planning across the whole value-chain.
Industrial partners include Audi, Bosch, Hella, Infineon, and many more representing most OEM, suppliers, and microelectronics companies in Germany's automotive sector.
Dr.-Ing. Carna Radojicic, Post-Doc at the chair of CPS, together with Co-Autors from TU Vienna's Institute of Computer Technology, was awarded with a Best Paper Award at the 51st Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS-51). Her paper "Semi-Symbolic Simulation and Analysis of Deviation Propagation of Feature Coordination in Cyber-Physical Systems" was presented in the "Software Technology" with 57 other accepted papers.
On January, 1st we start a new, EC funded (H2020) project: VICINITY. Objective of this project is to create means that increase interoperability of different things across domains in the Internet of Things. The approach is to develop a HW/SW platform that provides "Interoperability as a Service".
VICINITY is a "large-type (ex: IP)" H2020 project with 4 years duration. It is coordinated by Prof. Grimm from TU Kaiserslautern's chair on design of Cyber-Physical Systems.
The book "Embedded Systems for Energy Management and Smart Appliances (springer)" from Prof. Grimm is now also available in a Chinese translation (Springer & China Machine Press, ISBN 978-1-4419-8794-5/978-1-4899-8728-0, list price 49.80 RMB, first printing 2.800 copies).
