The main goal of my research activities is to ensure lifetime fault free operation of HW/SW-Systems in a formal way and using as less resources as possible.

Here the focus is on low-level software (e.g. firmware) used in embedded systems.

The corresponding research topics are:

  • Online-Detection, Online-Testing, Online-Checking etc.
  • Automated test pattern generation

Related research topics are:

  • Fault modelling

    • E.g. developing realistic hardware fault faults

  • Fault-Injection

    • E.g. injecting hardware faults into the processor

  • Fault-Analysis

    • E.g. analyse how hardware faults influence the program execution
