Project Partners and involved Staff

This initiative Bridge-US consists of three German and three US partners. The initiative is coordinated by the University of Siegen.

The chair Embedded Systems of Prof. Dr. Obermaisser in the University of Siegen focuses on system architectures and platforms for reliable and distributed real-time systems. Research focuses on fault tolerance techniques, networks, diagnostic techniques based on machine learning, model-based design methods and software architectures for embedded systems. A central part of our research is the development of system models, design principles and platform services for the component-based realization of embedded systems. The resulting systems can be realized cost-effectively and exhibit non-functional key properties such as robustness and adaptivity.

Petanux GmbH (PTNX) is a German data science and business analytics company based in Bonn, Germany. PTNX’s core competencies lie in the areas of research and development of smart solutions and software systems as well as project management. The main goal of PTNX is to support the industrialization of scientific results and to close the gaps between science and industry. To this end, PTNX applies scientific methods and algorithms, in particular machine learning and artificial intelligence for the digitization of business processes and the provision of novel smart services.

Leibniz Information Center for Science and Technology, University Library (TIB) is the national information centre for all areas of engineering, technology and natural sciences and is headed byProf. Dr. Sören Auer. In addition to acquiring scientific literature, the TIB conducts applied research in areas such as archiving non-textual materials, data visualisation, semantic technologies, big data and services in the future Internet. With more than 9 million holdings in 2017, the TIB is the largest science and technology library in the world and operates (in cooperation with international partners) a variety of digital services for its user groups.
