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”.
