Barkhausen Institut is driving innovation in the SEMECO project, developing secure medical technologies, improving data transmission for computer tomographs, and bridging the gap between science and the public through science communication initiatives.
Writing programs that execute in parallel in a distributed system, i.e., across many computers, is challenging. Project MICRO COSMOS investigates an approach to automatically translate sequential into distributed programs.
The project HiCONNECTS aims to overcome two of the most important obstacles of the current state of the art: the transmission of Internet of Things data over the IT network and the sensing of objects to enable "Highly Automated Driving". Barkhausen Institut contributes by developing Radio Frequency Antennas for automotive radars and focusing on integration of the mmWave antennas into radar chipsets.
A step forward in digital component design must be made to increase the speed and to create highly energy-efficient computer systems. At the same time, trustworthiness of the systems must be ensured. The European research project COREnext aims to build a computing architecture and components for sustainable and trustworthy B5G and 6G processing.
The goal of KOMSENS-6G is to add another core functionality to the 6th generation (6G) mobile communications system: radio sensing. BI will develop radio frequency hardware for Joint Communication and Sensing and will also focus on security and privacy of such systems.
The novel sensory capabilities of next generation 6G mobile communications bring with them certain risks in the area of security and privacy. The Barkhausen Institut is researching a security concept that will enable a trustworthy implementation.
Modern medical devices increasingly contain microchips, often located in the immediate vicinity of or even inside the patient's body over a longer period of time. In the M/EDGE project, energy-saving and miniaturized computing technology will be developed for use in and on patients. It also aims at finding solutions to connect medical products to a medical cloud while being energy-efficient.
The aim of ICAS4Mobility is to combine communication and radar and integrate them into a common system for the future 6G mobile communications standard. Barkhausen Institut is investigating privacy aspects and options for securing captured sensor data against manipulations.
In the recent past, there has been important progress in the production-ready implementation of non-volatile memory. The FOSSIL project focuses on making the advantages of non-volatile memory also usable for applications.
6G is already the sixth generation of mobile communications. The Barkhausen Institut participates in the research and development of 6G by being part of the 6G Platform project. Within the project, the BI conducts research on trustworthiness issues and designs new formats of science communication.
The impacts of climate change can already be observed today and require proactive and determined action on the part of our society. Under the direction of the Staatliche Schlösser, Burgen und Gärten gGmbH, the Barkhausen Institut is working to support and relieve the gardeners in the Pillnitz Palace Garden, by developing a semi-autonomous robot to facilitate the watering of the plants.
Starting in October 2020, an international group of researchers will investigate how the Internet of Things can make supply chains more efficient and secure. In the iNGENIOUS project the Barkhausen Institut takes on the role of technical manager and brings its M3 operating system platform to the project.
