ISE - Institute for Systems Engineering – Real Time Systems Group (RTS)

The Institute of Systems Engineering (ISE) is part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and deals with the modelling, simulation, analysis and realisation of hardware and software architectures of complex technical systems.

Real Time Systems Group (RTS) is part of the Institute of Systems Engineering (ISE). Head of the department is Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bernardo Wagner. RTS cooperates with the Hannover Centre for Mechatronics of the Leibniz Universität Hannover in joint research initiatives, projects and via technology exchange.

RTS focuses its work on two key areas: distributed automation systems and mobile service robots. Such systems have to interact with real surroundings in a correct, reliable and secure way and furthermore with deterministic time response, that is in real time.

Examples for research fields at the RTS are event-discrete modelling, real time programming of embedded controlling devices, networked industrial automation systems, remote handling and control of technical facilities and measuring devices over large distances or real time compatible operating systems.
