Model-based Systems Analysis and Simulation

The Model-based Systems Analysis and Simulation group has been established and lead by apl.Prof.Dr. Matthias Reuter. The key research areas of group are categorized under two titles: Theory and Application of Neural Networks, and Simulation Engineering.

The division has long been working on Theory and Application of Neural Networks. Some of the application areas that have been worked on are as follows:

  • Predictive process control
  • Analysis of ground penetrating radar, sonar data
  • Diabetes management
  • Image analysis with neural nets

The division has been awarded in 2007 with the German Defense Industry Innovation Prize for their research on detection and identification of anti-personal landmines. Their research on detecting underground utility lines and their automatic entry into existing cadastral maps is nominated for Innovation Award from bauma in 2010. In the same year, the project received the award "Germany - Land of Ideas" from the President of Germany

The recent studies in this direction is mainly focused on automated analysis of sonar data for detection and identification of recessed material in North and Baltic Seas to ensure the safe establishment and operation of offshore wind turbines.

The research in Simulation Engineering is being carried out in close co-operation with German Aerospace Center (DLR) Institute of Flight Systems (FT). Since 2014, Dr.Umut Durak from DLR-FT is participating in the division as an adjunct lecturer. In addition to teaching, he is also supporting the research efforts basically on model-based simulation engineering and flight systems simulation.

Division has been offering various modeling and simulation and cognitive science courses and seminars. These include undergraduate level Theory of Modeling and Simulation, and graduate level Introduction to Cognitive Science, Simulation Engineering and Graph Models and Simulation Seminar.
