The Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems (ICE) is jointly directed by Prof. Rainer Leupers (Chair for Software for Systems on Silicon, SSS) and Prof. Haris Gačanin (Chair for Distributed Signal Processing, DSP), who collaborate closely in research and complement each other with their expertise.

Key research areas at ICE:

  • Wireless signal processing and networking for wireless communication systems: from algorithm to implementation
  • Intelligent systems and short-range communication systems (e.g. AI-based RRM, D2D, Cyber Physical Systems, M2M, Wireless 2.0)
  • Design of sensors with convergence of signal processing and machine learning methodologies
  • Efficient hardware accelerators and processor architectures for embedded applications, in particular multiprocessor systems-on-chip (MPSoC)
  • Electronic system-level (ESL) design tools for application-specific HW/SW systems
  • Software development tools (e.g. compilers and fast simulators) for heterogeneous multicore architectures
  • Hardware security
