The increasing complexity of modern software-intensive systems is reaching the limits of traditional analysis and evaluation methods. In this project, it is evaluated whether simulation and virtual reality may push these boundaries.
This project is about programming industrial robots. Today, industrial robots are almost exclusively used in large batch series production. Small and medium enterprises hardly use robots, because programming the robots is very time-consuming and expensive.
Information technology allows for new planning methods in urban development. The project otto-motion focuses on urban planning and development of sporting activities. In this project, researchers and experts from sports, data mining and systems engineering together develop tools and methods to boost the time that citizens of Magdeburg spent on physical exercise.
Within a national competition, the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg was successful in setting up a prestigious research campus medical devices. Special congratulations go to Georg Rose on Oliver Speck as spokesman of this strategic project.
More and more functions in complex technical systems are realized in software. This leads to the term of "software-intensive systems". However, many of these systems require highest dependability standards as system failure might cause injuries or even deaths. Traditional techniques for safety analysis and methods for software design are no longer sufficient. In academia, and particularly in our research group, several new model-based methods to solve this problem have been developed in the last decade.
