Welcome to the website of the Intelligent Embedded Systems (IES) Group at the University of Kassel, Germany.
We develop and apply innovative techniques that increase the "machine intelligence" of embedded computer systems.
A computer system can be characterized as being "intelligent" if it is aware of its own skills and needs and if it is able to use this knowledge to maintain or even to improve its abilities in a dynamic environment. Moreover, if such a system interacts with other, similar systems or humans, it must be aware of their skills and needs in order to communicate efficiently, to collaborate with them, or to behave pro-actively. Thus, machine learning is a key issue in our work. Further important topics are soft computing, pattern recognition, data mining, specification techniques for embedded systems, and real-time systems.
If you are interested in our work, do not hesitate to drop us a line. We will be happy to answer your questions.
