Dependable Connected Systems

Fraunhofer IKS develops connected systems that are safe and dependable.

Connected systems make it possible to create intelligent and flexible control functions for industrial and automotive applications. In this area the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS designs complex systems to ensure they are capable of real-time, continuous and safe operation by utilizing the following strategies:

  • Dependable end-to-end architectures
  • Integrated design, simulation, prototyping and evaluation of connected applications
  • Dynamic outsourcing of safety-critical functions to edge, fog or cloud networks
  • Predictive adaptation during fluctuating connectivity quality
