The SESAr research group aims to foster research community around

  • Improving the maturity model-driven Software Engineering processes with particular interests on
    • evolving distributed heterogeneous systems with a focus on the Internet of Things (IoT), and
    • safety critical real-time systems (e.g. vehicular automation).
  • Separating software architecture and application design in order to facilitate
    • the ability to have functional & non-functional requirements (FRs & NFRs) evolve and be addressed independently
    • being able to develop suitable Reference Architectures & Platforms to address the NFRs for different application domains.

One of the aims of the research group is to foster cross-disciplinary research projects within the vision of the University's School for Data Science and Computational Thinking. In particular we envisage cross disciplinary research around

  • system analysis and design across systems with hardware and software elements
  • applying dynamic, heterogeneous distributed/IoT systems across disciplines like Health Care, Robotics, Cyber-Security, Machine Learning and others.
