Are you looking for a final year project? Would you like to discover the work real-time software for flying platforms? Then apply now! We look forward to you joining us.
Start: March 2021
The department is responsible for the requirements, design, implementation, and test of embedded real-time software for flying platforms. In addition to this, the department is driving new technologies for the integration into the products.
For time synchronization on different levels of a network hierarchy, e.g. between aircraft, within an aircraft, and within onboard computers specific protocols are necessary to meet the timing requirements in the avionics domain. There are standards (IEEE1588) and services (e.g. GPS), which are well established but seem to lack required properties, e.g. concerning fault tolerance. Therefore, modifications and/or new protocols have been developed, which need to be evaluated. The development of a dedicated simulation framework using a regular programming language will clearly provide the most flexibility. Besides the effort for the implementation of the protocols and their test beds, the correctness of the simulation results must be validated. Further effort is needed for an ergonomic (graphical) representation of the results.
