The research and teaching activities of the Embedded Computing Systems group at the Institute of Computer Engineering focus on networked embedded systems in critical applications.

Research is primarily devoted to fault-tolerant distributed algorithms, distributed real-time systems, dependable systems-on-chip and asynchronous digital design. The spectrum of methods applied to these problems ranges from formal mathematical analysis up to experimental evaluation of prototype implementations.

With respect to teaching, the ECS group is primarily responsible for courses on fault-tolerant distributed algorithms and digital design in the Master and Bachelor studies Computer Engineering" ("Technische Informatik").
