Embedded Systems


Embedded systems are computer systems which are integrated into other products. Integrated treatment of the required hardware and its programming and networking under numerous constraints is of central concern. Several chairs of the Department of Computer Science at Erlangen are involved in this research area. Embedded Systems are part of the more general research area “Mechatronics and Embedded Systems” at the School of Engineering.

The “ESI – Embedded Systems Institute” was founded at the School of Engineering to further support this research area and integrate it with activities of large-scale enterprises as well as medium-sized businesses.
