—With the availability of the off-the-shelf quadro-copter platforms, the implementation of autonomous un-manned aerial vehicle (UAV) has substantially been simplified. Such UAVs can explore unaccessible terrain and provide information about the local situation in a specified target area. For the early development of an autonomous aerial vehicle, virtual… (More)
The introduction of low-cost renewable energy production, e.g., by photovoltaic, has turned classical grid nodes like homes and offices in prosumers, taking an active role in smart energy systems by merging home-automation and energy production functionality. However, to become a self-balancing element of a stable smart grid, supporting the energy-aware… (More)
One of the central issues of software engineering is compatibility. This topic may appear in organizational questions as well as in questions about the "fitting" of components. To allow for an early evaluation of compatibility by a model of the system under examination, the (Unified) Compatibility Modelling Language ((U)CML) has been developed at the… (More)
We recently generated an advanced mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) by targeted knock-in of single-copy mutated human amyloid precursor-protein (APP) and tau genes, crossed with a non-symptomatic presenilin (PS1A246E) over-expressing mouse line. These PLB1Triple mice presented with age-dependent and AD-relevant phenotypes. Homozygous PLB1Triple mice… (More)
Flexible, extensible and lightweight architectures are necessary to allow the participation of small energy producers in the smart grid. In addition to an intelligent energy management system on top of a home automation system these nodes exchange information with other smart grid nodes to enable services like energy trading or demand side management as… (More)
Reuse of high confidence subsystems depends on their appropriate modelling and documentation. This paper discusses the different aspects that have to be considered when modelling a system and its subsystems. We propose a concrete artefact model for integrated reuse from requirements to technical architecture, which satisfies documentation demands with… (More)

Electric/electronic architecture model driven FlexRay configurationrichter entwickeln, setzen wir verstärkt Akzente, die nach-haltig umwelt-und zukunftsfreundlich sind. Abstract: Architectural modeling is an integral part of modern software development. In particular, diverse systems benefit from precise architectural models since similar components can… (More)
