Embedded System Software Group

Overview

The Embedded System Software Group at Technische Universität Dortmund is affiliated with the Department of Computer Science 12 (Embedded Systems) and is led by Prof. Dr.-Ing Olaf Spinczyk.

The core capabilites of the group encompass all aspects of developing dependable, predictable and adaptive infrastructure software. Accordingly the group has done substantial work in the fields of aspect-oriented, generic and generative programming as well as operating system product lines.

On this basis we currently conduct research in the following areas:

  • software product line engineering, especially embedded (and automotive) operating system product lines
  • aspect-oriented and generic/generative programming, especially in the language AspectC++
  • dynamic software adaptation, especially by dynamic aspect weaving
  • configurability of non-functional properties and architecture, especially in operating systems
  • system software support for utilizing reconfigurable hardware
  • usage of virtualisation technologies for the integration in cyber-physical systems
  • performance analysis of non-functional properties in complex systems
  • energy-aware operating system concepts for Industry 4.0 and the Internet Of Things
  • construction of energy self-sufficient systems (e.g. energy harvesting in wireless sensor networks)
  • data-mining for ubiquitous system software
  • fault-injection experiments and fault-tolerance mechanisms
