Institute of Transportation Systems
Area of research:
Scientific / postdoctoral posts
Around 170 scientists – engineers, psychologists and computer scientists – work at the Institute of Transportation Systems in Braunschweig and Berlin. They carry out research and development for automotive and railway systems and for traffic management. Join us in shaping the future of connected mobility in traffic 5.0 by helping to master the complexity of traffic systems and their increasing interconnection. As a result of increasing digitalization, new and fully integrated traffic systems and system networks are emerging between infrastructure, vehicle and passenger, which up to now have operated in isolation and independently of each other. The DLR is working to close this gap, to make traffic better and, above all, safer. To achieve this, efficient methods and considerations of technical systems at a higher level of abstraction are required.
The main objectives of you mission are:
evaluation of existing technical reference architectures for traffic (e.g. IP-KOM-ÖV, AutoSARAdaptive, etc.) scientific examination of methods relevant to architecture such as system modelling, architecture evaluation and the determination of migration paths (architecture refactoring) investigation of possible evaluation metrics for software / system architectures for their qualitative assessment (e.g. SAAM, ATAM, ALMA)
Depending on inclination and interest, local public transport, rail, automotive and urban traffic management can be utilized as transport applications. For your research, the DLR has an integrated tool chain with numerous laboratories, (connectable) simulators, automated test vehicles and research infrastructure in the field, such as the Intelligent Mobility (AIM) application platform or the Lower Saxony test field. To achieve your goals, you will work in an interdisciplinary team with computer scientists and engineers. We offer you a stimulating research environment, space for your own ideas and international visibility. You have the opportunity to do your doctorate.
