Key research area "Intelligent Technical Systems"

Intelligent technical systems are highly complex products, characterized by a close interaction between hard- and software. System functionality is continually improving by moving functionality into software modules. This increases the life span as well as the adaptability of the products, but simultaneously puts high demands on software quality, and especially on the integration with the hardware that is to be controlled.

The underlying research areas that form the foundation for this increased quality demand, are mechatronics, software quality, virtual prototyping/simulation, and systems integration.

Due to a close cooperation between mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science, we can research novel development methods, in particular in the areas of modelling, simulation, and formal verification. These methods take into account the increasing move from hardware to software, as well as the highly networked system components.
