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

The lab deals with protocols and architectures of networked systems and with their analysis and evaluation. To this end, we apply various methods of modeling, simulation, measurement and test and also develop own toolsets. Furthermore, two specific fields of application are investigated so that our research activities can be subdivided into three areas:

  • Quality-of-Service: Performance evaluation and investigation of new protocols to ensure the quality of service in (safety-critical) networks
  • Connected Mobility: Modeling and simulation of vehicular networks and connected mobility, used technologies and novel mobility concepts
  • Smart Energy: Analysis and simulation of smart, networked energy systems based on renewable energies and electric mobility

The teaching curriculum covers fundamental courses such as “Computer Communication” and “Simulation and Modeling” as well as advanced courses such as “Advanced Networking” and specialized topics of both application areas, e.g. “Vehicular Networks” or “Smart Grids and Electric Mobility”.

The Smart Energy group was represented by two PhD students at this year's virtual Energieinformatik 2021 in Freiburg. Felix Heinrich was represented at the main conference with his presentation "A comprehensive study on Battery Electric Modeling Approaches based on Machine Learning". Niklas Ebell wa...

Within the 7th energy research program of the federal government, the project ESM-Regio, short for "Multi-sector coupled energy system modeling on a regional level", started on May 1, 2021. In the project, a model is created for the overarching analysis of sector-coupled energy systems. For this pur...

A broadband Internet access is essential for the modern society and working from home. Poorly connected regions can be served with Internet via satellite. In this project, the performance of different applications over different Internet access technologies has been evaluated: Geostationary sat...
