Architectures and Services for Critical Infrastructures

Software systems and the associated applications play a key role in the digital transformation, whether it involves self-driving vehicles or smart electricity grids. The growing complexity, such as in coupling the different sectors, places major demands on the software architectures and interfaces.

The volumes of data that have to be transmitted and processed are growing continuously. Different domains and sectors have to exchange information and interact with one another, especially when it involves public utility infrastructures (electricity, heat, mobility, water).

With this in mind, the activities of our Architectures and Services for Critical Infrastructures research division are focused on analyses and methods in order to create software architectures for distributed infrastructures.These infrastructures must be scalable, stable and robust. To examine these types of complex systems, we use simulation environments and other tools.

This allows us to not only model interactions and application logic, but also physical characteristics – or we can directly integrate real components. Using these tools, we can design different rules and control concepts, analyze to what extent system operation is optimized and implement data-based, connected services.
