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 paper entitled with "Coupled Traffic Simulation by Detached Translation Federates: An HLA-Based Approach" was presented at the Winter Simulation Conference 2019 in Washington D.C. by our research assistant Moritz Gütlein. Besides describing the concept for reusable submodel translation in theor...

Our former research assistant Ibrahim Alagöz has successfully concluded his PhD. He defended his dissertation titled "Development of a Methodology for the Efficient Validation of Safety-Critical Systems Using Machine Learning Optimization Techniques" last Friday. After publishing his work, he will b...

Research assistant Lorenz Ammon presented our paper "N-Ray Ground Interference: Extending the Two-Ray Interference Model for 3D Terrain Shapes" at this year's IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC). The conference, which is one of the main events of the vehicular networking community, took place...
