Central aim of organisation
advance the state-of-the-art in software construction; current focus on embedded (control) systems
Briefly describe your organisation
The concrete implementation of systems and prototypes, with which concepts and methods are studied, is our foundation of research. The long-term goal is to contribute to something that might be called a handbook for software construction. Let us illustrate this by means of a classical engineering discipline. An engineer who constructs a bridge considers all the relevant parameters according to explicitly documented knowledge about bridge building. This narrows down the number of choices, but helps to ensure that the bridge wont collapse.
In an analogous way a software construction handbook should describe the relevant context and solutions for typical problems at hand. This includes all aspects of software construction, in particular
* software design and implementation
* software reuse and composition
* programming methodology
A pragmatic research approach requires a focus on certain domain areas. Currently we have chosen socalled embedded (control) systems and autonomous driving.
