Embedded Systems

The Chair for Embedded Systems addresses design, analysis, and verification of distributed embedded systems and systems-on-chip as well as their application in the automotive, avionics, internet of things (IoT) and the medical domain. The trend towards autonomous systems in various application domains accompanied with the increasing demand for safety and security enforces the need for efficient stress tests under varying environmental conditions in order to build robust application-specific hardware/software architectures especially in the case of implementing machine-learning applications on embedded devices.
