The Chair of Computer Science 11 is part of the new Collaborative Research Center / Transregio (SFB/TRR) 339 of the German Research Foundation (DFG). The Collaborative Research Project investigates the “Road of the Future” and is named: »Digital Twin of the Road System - Physical-Informational Representation of Future Road System«.
Research groups from TU Dresden and RWTH Aachen University are researching in a collaboration of civil engineering, computer science and mechanical engineering. The goal of the research area is the creation and exploration of a digital twin of the road system and thus laying the foundation for the analysis and optimization of the future road system. The main focus of this research is the intelligent, gentle and sustainable use of the road infrastructure.
Our task as the Chair of Embedded Software is primarily a sensor data fusion that combines data from different sources. We particularly focus on the inclusion of data from a sensitive road surface layer.
The proposal was submitted by Prof. Kowalewski (chair holder) and Dr. Alrifaee (head of the Cyber-Physical Mobility Group). At the chair the research assistant Mr. Schäfer (member of the Cyber-Physical Mobility Group) is working on the project.

As part of the university's anniversary celebrations for “150 Years RWTH Aachen”, an exhibition is being held at the Centre Charlemagne. Among other things, the PV1000 pandemic respirator, which was co-developed at the Chair Informatik 11, will be exhibited as an initiative from RWTH. Ten prototypes of the PV1000 are currently being built for further testing during development.
In the AutoMock project, a prolongation of the funding by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research has been approved. The results already developed for the extracorporeal (i.e. isolated) treatment of kidneys should be continued and finalised. This should, for example, enable a better transport of kidneys or also answer scientific questions outside of devoted animal experiments. In the upcoming part of the project, the user interface is to be enhanced and dynamic configuration during start-up as well as during operation is to be made possible. In order to achieve this, not only the communication bus used will be revised, but also a stronger integration of the entire interconnection hardware will be sought.
