Our groups current research activities are focused on the following three directions:
- Real-Time Systems, including formal timing analyses, scheduling algorithm design, real-time operating systems, etc.
- Embedded Systems, including system software development, design and optimization for emerging architectures, etc.
- Resource-constrained Data Analyses, including error tolerant neural networks, architecture-aware data analyses, etc.
If you are interested in writing your thesis in any of the above mentioned research directions please refer to the corresponding people directly for further topic discussions or see the list of available thesis topics below.
Please see the list of completed theses to get an impression of topics provided by our group.
In case you cannot find a suitable one but you are still interested in ES/CPS designs, please refer to the aforementioned LS12 staff.
