Medal at the iENA 2023 invention fair

The project „Anordnung und Verfahren zur Ermittlung von Parametern einer Fahrbahn vor einem Fahrzeug" received a bronze medal at the international invention fair iENA 2023.

Aleksanda Beliautsou was involved in the project for our group "System and Software Engineering".
We are proud that the project has already progressed to the point where a patent application has been filed.

The university recognized the achievement at the Thuringian awards event.
The medal and certificate were ceremonially handed over to the award winners in the Senate Hall. This was followed by a short presentation that introduced the invention to our guests from science, industry, the press and politics.


The System and Software Engineering group deals with methods, applications and tools for the design of complex technical systems and software.
Elements of these systems often come from the areas of mechatronics and electrical engineering, with an increasing proportion of software. In important industrial application fileds of embedded systems, such as automation and automotive systems, an interdisciplinary and holistic view is necessary.
From the point of view of information technology, software engineering plays a prominent role, but cannot be seen in isolation from the development process of the surrounding system. Training, methods and tools for successful engineering solutions must reflect this connection.

The main topic of the work is the model-based engineering of automation and embedded systems. Such technical applications in computer science contain hardware and software elements and cannot be designed with the tools of classic software engineering alone. The interface between computer science, electrical engineering and automation technology makes the subject area an important current challenge with high future potential for the graduates.
The central point of systematic system and software engineering are computer-internal models and the procedural methods that use them.
