Prof. Dr. Oliver Bringmann is directing the Chair for Embedded Systems and is serving as deputy head of the department of computer science. He studied computer science at the University of Karlsruhe (KIT) and received the doctoral degree (PhD) in computer science from the University of T├╝bingen in 2001. Until April 2012 he was division manager of the research division Intelligent Systems and Production Engineering (ISPE) and member of the management board at FZI Karlsruhe.

The Chair for Embedded Systems addresses design, analysis, and verification of distributed embedded systems and systems-on-chip as well as their application in the automotive, avionics, internet of things (IoT) and the medical domain. The trend towards autonomous systems in various application domains accompanied with the increasing demand for safety and security enforces the need for efficient stress tests under varying environmental conditions in order to build robust application-specific hardware/software architectures especially in the case of implementing machine-learning applications on embedded devices.

The research activities are in the area of design electronic design automation (EDA), embedded system design, performance, power and thermal analysis, embedded many-core architectures, safety and security architectures, verification of embedded systems, as well as technology projection and architectural design ÔÇô from system-level to tape-out.
