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”.


At this year's Vehicular Networking Conference, CS7 contributed three papers: Thomas Deinlein presented his paper "Evaluation of the 5G Data Plane for Advanced Vehicular Use Cases with 5G-Sim-V2I/N". Michael Niebisch talked about his work on the topic of "Impact of the Communication Directio...

Former research assistant and PhD student Florian Bock has successfully obtained his doctorate, congratulations! The PhD defense following his dissertation titled "Contributions to the scenario-accompanied development of automated driving functions" has recently taken place online via Zoom as well. ...

Every two years the whole Network Calculus community meets at WoNeCa (Workshop for Network Calculus) to discuss, exchange ideas and present new research results. This year, our research associate Lisa Maile participated in the (digital) event and presented an overview of results as well as current a...

Our external PhD student Christoph Sippl has successfully defended his dissertation titled "Identification of relevant traffic situations for scenario-based development of automated driving functions" just recently. The doctoral project was supervised in cooperation with Audi AG. Due to the current ...
