E/E & Software
The Area Electrics/Electronics (E/E) & Software at the VIRTUAL VEHICLE explores and develops new methods and tools to support efforts in the vehicle, rail and aircraft industries to address a variety of challenges. For example, the area deals with the model-based design of embedded systems, active and functional safety, real-time modeling and real-time coupling, multi-core systems, modern control strategies, "residual vehicle simulation" and component models with improved prediction capability.
Each individual theme of the research landscape contributes significantly to a long-term target - namely, representing the functions and properties of the cyber-physical, mechatronic and electrochemical systems, as well as their interactions in the electrified, hybrid and electric vehicle through various levels of abstraction.
The following main themes can be found in Area E/E and Software:
- Embedded Systems and Functional Safety
- Battery Simulation, Testing and Modeling of Aging Processes
- Electrification of Components
- Multi-Domain Simulation - Coupled Simulation
- Model Predictive Control
- Real-time Systems
- Multi-core Systems and Wireless Technologies
- (Embedded) Software Development and Software Variability
