“Making networked systems wireless and self-organizing.”

A worldwide trend with huge impact on our society is the increasing interconnectedness of embedded computers: The Internet of things is growing and cyber-physical systems are rising. Bettstetter and his team contribute to these emerging technologies by working on the design, modeling, and analysis of novel techniques for wireless communications and networking and self-organization in networked systems.

Major expertise encompasses distributed algorithms and protocols, stochastic modeling and analysis, network simulation and performance analysis, protocol engineering, prototyping on programmable hardware, and wireless measurements. Application domains include telecommunications (4G, 5G), sensor networks, and mobile robotics and minidrone systems. A list of all present and past research topics is available.
