Cooperation Partners & Sponsors

We have been working in various research projects with following partners from industry and academia:

Airbus Group Innovations

Projects

Artificial Intelligence for Performance

AI4Performance covers the analysis, modeling and evaluation of software network solutions, by proposing a new methodology for performance analysis and an experimental platform for the data collection, model validation and deployment of new network architectures. The project focuses on different levels of the packet processing stack.

Decentralized Anomaly Detection

Today's IT systems used by corporations a caracterized by a steadily growing number of computers and other devices. Furthermore, virtually all devices are connected via networks. Lastly, the complexity of dependencies between computers and services is growing. The named reasons make it difficult to understand, protect and maintain the functionality of computer networks already today.

SEcure Networking for a DATa Center Cloud in Europe

Within the SENDATE-PLANETS project, all project partners together will design a network architecture and technologies for secure and flexible distributed data centers in close collaboration. The target is to develop security mechanisms for NFV/SDN networks as well as set up, develop, and optimize VNFs and their placement in distributed data centers.

AVL Software & Functions GmbH

Projects

Vertrauenswürdige IT für autonomes Fahren (Trustworthy IT for Autonomous Driving)

The vehicle of the future is a internally and externally highly networked computer system. Based on a plethora of sensor data, which are evaluated by complex algorithms, the car is able to temporarily take corrective actions or to drive autonomously for a longer period of time. The safety of an autonomous car now depends on the trustworthiness of the data collected by sensors. The protection of this sensor data is the aim of the VITAF project.
