45930: Student Computer Science - Design and implementation of graphic representations of live data

German Aerospace Center (DLR)

Braunschweig, Germany

Work group:

Institute of Transportation Systems



Area of research:

Diploma & Master Thesis



Job description:


At the DLR Institute of Transportation Systems (TS), Dominion is the basis middleware for numerous testing facilities, such as automotive laboratories, test vehicles, AIM and a number of railway laboratories. Dominion enables the fast data-exchange between applications and services in real time, both locally on a computer and distributed within a network. One application focus lies in vehicle automation and simulation, where data from sensors/actuators (e.g. steering angle, accelerator-pedal position, etc.) through environment detection and traffic simulation and on to driver-condition recognition (ECG, EEG, facial recognition) are exchanged with high proficiency. Through automatic code generation in Dominion, the application developer is provided with an application framework for differing development environments and operating systems (Windows, Linux, Raspbian), in which all the necessary input and output data are already available.


Within the scope of your master/bachelor thesis/internship, you will be involved in the further development of our Dominion middleware. Through your investigative spirit and your sound knowledge of software development in C++ and Qt, you will provide a valuable contribution towards the improvement of this software framework for current and future research questions in this field.


Dominion includes a graphical tool which can display live data transmitted via the middleware. Within the scope of this work, new possibilities for the graphical processing and representation of live data are to be developed.


Your tasks can include:


elicitation of the requirements for the representation of live data designing of graphic display options which meet the requirements implementation of the new representation possibilities in C++ with Qt

Please apply via recruiter’s website.
