Barkhausen Institut

Trustworthiness for the Tactile Internet of Things

Our research institute was founded in 2017 in Dresden, Saxony. It brings together researchers from a variety of backgrounds from all over the world. We develop break-through technology with the aim of increasing the dependability of IoT systems (Internet of Things), that includes ensuring availability, integrity and confidentiality. Doing so, we create a foundation of a trustworthy IoT which is one basis of a future "digital democracy". Therefore, besides such scientific research, science communication plays an important role in everyday’s work of the Barkhausen Institut.

Dresden Science Night 2021: Visit us online!

6 to 7:30PM: "A convoy of vehicles without a driver?!"
On that live event you will experience our demonstrator for connected driving and learn about the influence of mobile communications on the behavior of vehicles in a convoy. Watch our vehicles in the livestream, examine our web interface and talk to our developers!

7:30 to 9:30PM: Pitchs: Connected fridges, cars, homes ... with security?
Not only people, but more and more devices communicate via the internet, exchange data, take information from the environment, analyze it and react independently. Our engineers research on solutions, that will make the "Internet of Things" reliable and protect our privacy. They will present their work to all interested parties in a digital open pitch room.

Security and Privacy

One of the requirements for a trustworthy IoT is a secure and privacy-respecting data processing. Why, despite all the efforts, has it not yet been possible to get to grips with the security problems in the IoT sector? Where do we currently stand in the area of research and development?
