DIAMANT – Dependability for Sensitive Persistant Complex Distributed Applications”

A Cooperation between University, IHP and Research Partners from Brandenburg


Short Description of the Project:
In the research project, DIAMANT, funded by the BMBF, studies on the improvement  of dependability, energy efficiency and maintability of complex distributed systems at all system levels are carried out, among them techniques applied on hardware and software in distributed systems as well as protocol development for communication. Thereby, project focus are wireless sensor and actuator networks.

Complex distributed systems can be used in a range of applications, e.g. traffic telematics, industry automation or smart home.

The DIAMANT project itself bases on the outcome of the InnoProfile project “TANDEM” for young academic researchers, whereby configuralable sensor nodes for different application areas were developed. Now, in DIAMANT, standardized interfaces for these sensor nodes should accelerate and improve software development.

In this project the BMBF funds five young academic researchers, who are guided by Prof. Dr. rer. nat. habil Mario Schölzel. For the leadership a professorship at the chair for “Dependable and Energy Efficient Sensor Networks Research Group” is associated to the institute for computer science at the university of Potsdam.
