Division of Embedded Systems


The mission of the Embedded System Division (ES) is to provide engineers with scientific methods and tools for designing safety-critical real-time systems. The goal is to advance state-of-art and practice for developing such systems into a mature engineering discipline, i.e., in analogue with the scientifically well founded methods and tools for mechanical construction. ES develops methods for constructing safetycritical real-time systems, ultimately capable of guaranteeing their multitude of requirements to be fulfilled.

Our division is very research intensive and it has an internationally proved record of excellence in conducting high-quality research and a very productive graduate training program. All research is performed in projects with specific goals with respect to achievements, publications, collaborations, and prototype tools. A project typically has elements of both basic and applied research Equally important is the undergraduate education, where EAi s responsible for computer engineering related courses, with a particular focus on computer based real-time systems. We are resposible for the international Master Program in Intelligent Embedded Systems.
