Research


Basic Technologies

Motivation

Information and Communication Technologies are increasingly used in our society for solving problems and challenges in domains ranging from energy, health and security to transport and telecommunications. As a result of this trend, new technologies emerge with very short innovation cycles, and face with several critical limitations such as scalability, performance, efficiency, reliability, availability and usability. These diverse and complex problems require cutting-edge multi-disciplinary research supported by strong engineering skills.

The application areas of the GT ARC are tailored to design and develop ICT-based solutions towards addressing today's society challenges.

Research Focus

GT ARC focuses on the research and development of enabling ICT platforms, mechanisms, and tools for contemporary solutions that address the grand challenges and needs of our society, such as mobility, energy, and health. Based on this goal, GT ARC focuses on following basic research topics:

AI MIDDLEWARE

Aims at a holistic approach to support the streamlined development and deployment of data-driven applications towards realizing distributed autonomous systems, focusing on making device data available for AI/ML applications.
In this context, we have been developing an "AI middleware" and associated tools, which support both the extraction and semantic abstraction of device data as well as the development, deployment and monitoring of AI solutions on the ingested data.

DATA ANALYTICS

Provides the necessary run-time and testing environment for AI models, libraries of trained AI models and data sets, as well as the supporting tools for general planning, perception and prediction functions.
A particular research focus of GT-ARC is on the design and development of the algorithms and tools that support more automated ML model selection and hyper-parameter optimization. We are also increasingly more involved in enhancing the explainability of AI models in our research, improving their applicability in critical domains such as automated mobility and health.

CYBERSECURITY

Focus is on the design and development of novel algorithms and tools to support network vulnerability monitoring and analysis as well as AI-based attack prediction, detection and response for connected systems.
In this direction, we have been developing both a real test environment and a simulation framework for monitoring and visualizing the network vulnerability state, attack modeling, and possible countermeasures. These are then utilized for game-theoretical modeling of attacker-defender interactions and the identification of countermeasure tasks, algorithms for automated response selection, and metrics for countermeasure effectiveness.

AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS

Diversity and complexity of problems require solutions with inherent intelligence such as monitoring its environment, processing the information, collaborating with others and autonomously making decisions.
GT ARC focuses on basic research activities for developing algorithms and approaches with self-* properties such as self-organization, self-healing and self-stabilization. The focal points of autonomous solutions are reliability, availability and adaptability.

Beneath personalized TV, communication and information services which allow an interactive media experience, semantic methods customize the content of the services and information for the user and her needs.

 

Vacuum cleaning robot

In the project “AutoPnP” (Plug & Play for automation systems) software for robot system has been developed which is easy and cost-saving adaptable to different needs. Exemplified this will be demonstrated on our vacuum cleaning robot. The robot is localized and regulated through sensors and is used by planning and executing different actions – in this case its vacuum cleaning.

 

Health room

 

Smart Bike + CLOG

Stay fit through exercise: on the screen appears for any city a route for a virtual bicycle tour in 3D that is visualized over “Google Earth”; additional information about places of interest along the tour create the training entertaining. Special functions as for example the information about the speed, pulse, collected activity points and burned calories motivate.

 

agnes²

agnes² is a mobile electronic patient folder for tablet PCs which arranges the patient care much more organized and easy. The app is used by patient visits of the “agneszwei”-specialists and was developed in the “KoPrA”-project in cooperation with the AOK.

 

NutriMe

NutriMe is an application for Android devices, aiming to improve the foodiness. The app analysis and evaluates eaten meals, food habits and physical condition of the user. Thus the app creates an overview about the in a specific time partaken calories, compares them to the target supply and evaluates the food qualitative by dint of the nutrition pyramid.

 

Kitchen

 

Smart Nutrition Assistant

What do you cook, if you are not sure, what is in your fridge? You do not need to remember any more if you need a special ingredient for a recipe or the milk expires soon. The Smart Nutrition Assistant knows the food at home and the matching recipes. By cooking he leads step by step through the cooking agenda and knows the nutrition content as well.
