Welcome to Computer Science 7 (Computer Networks and Communication Systems)

The group has a detailed expertise in protocols and architectures of communication systems and the analysis of their Quality-of-Service (QoS). Quality-of-Service is an umbrella covering aspects such as performance measures (e.g. throughput of a network, system response time, loss rate, etc.) and dependability measures (e.g. reliability of a network, availability of a server system, etc.) but also real time, safety, security, energy, and economics. For this purpose we apply various kinds of modeling, simulation, analysis, testing and measurements and we also develop specialized tools. Applications areas are: vehicular communications, smart energy systems (Smart Grid), and industrial communications.

The teaching curriculum covers fundamental aspects in communications (e.g. “Computer Communication”) and modeling (e.g. “Simulation and Modeling”) and also an advanced aspects such as “Vehicular Communications” or “Smart Grid”. Find more information here.


Our research associate Niklas Ebell, a member of the Smart Energy Group, presented his findings on "Sharing of Energy Among Cooperative Households Using Distributed Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning" at the IEEE Innovative Smart Grid Technologies Europe (ISGT) 2019 in Bucharest (Romania). Further i...

In our paper "Optimized Integration of Electric Vehicles in Low Voltage Distribution Grids" we analyse the impact of unccordinated charging of electric vehicles and different smart charging strategies on a representative European semi-urban low-voltage grid. The paper was published openly accessible...

Once again, Computer Science 7 have participated at the "Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften" (German for "Long Night of Sciences") last weekend. In the course of this event, which takes place every two years, various companies, research instituations and university facilities in the region open their do...

The results of two papers of the Connected Mobility group have been presented at the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference 2019-Fall in Honolulu (Hawaii, USA). Thomas Deinlein discussed the results of his work titled "Simulative Comparison of 4G/5G ITU Channel Models in the Context of V2I" at the ...
