Dr. Andreas Metzger represented the European Big Data lighthouse project "TransformingTransport" at this year's TRA. As technical coordinator, he gave a panel lecture on the project. The project partner also had a booth at the event.  »


On March 15 and 16, 2018, the steering group of the European lighthouse project TransformingTransport met at paluno in Essen. The project members presented their results from the individual subprojects and coordinated the next steps. Scientists from Prof. Dr. Klaus Pohl’s research group presented a prototype of the productivity cockpit they are developing together with the Port of Duisburg. The real-time data provided by the productivity cockpit makes it easier to monitor and control the processes in the terminal. »


To support our research activities, we are looking for two PhD candidates/associate researchers (salary classification TV-L 13) in the area of “Software Engineering for Smart Cyber-Physical Systems”. As part of our competent and motivated team, you will work in a fascinating, national and international research environment. You will prototypically implement and implement your research results in close cooperation with our industrial partners. Your tasks include, among others, participating in European and national research projects, publishing and disseminating research results at internationally renowned scientific conferences and journals, as well as supporting teaching activities. Each of the two positions also provides the opportunity to pursue further academic qualification (i.e., to earn a PhD degree).

The size of the Internet of Things (IoT) is steadily increasing. In addition to a broad range of opportunities, this also entails new challenges. These challenges include handling the heterogeneity and high number of connected IoT systems, as well as managing the highly dynamic environment of IoT systems. The recently started EU project ENACT develops solutions to address these challenges. In particular, ENACT address a central challenge, which is detecting and avoiding conflicts if more than one IoT system influences the same environmental variable. The EU is funding the Research & Innovation Action ENACT, which involves eleven partners, granting ca. 5 million EUR for three years. paluno’s ‘Software Systems Engineering’ group, headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl, will be funded with ca. 420,000 EUR. UDE leads the development of techniques for the agile operation and adaptation of IoT systems as part of an end-to-end DevOps framework.

Philipp Bohn of paluno’s Software Systems Engineering group (headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl), presented a full paper at ICSOC 2017 in Málaga. ICSOC is the International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing, which took place for the 15th time. The paper titled “Risk-based proactive process adaptation” is a scientific outcome of the European H2020 lighthouse project “TransformingTransport”, which develops and validates novel solutions for big data in transport and logistics.
