Research and Industrial Projects

A short and uncomplete desciption of research projects of IS-Bremen is following:

FIDES (Frühwarn- und Intrusion Detection System auf der Basis von kombinierten Methoden der KI)

VOGUE (Vertrauenswürdiger mObiler ZuGriff auf UnternehmensnetzE)
VOGUE concentrates on the development of an integrated security platform which allows mobile devices to access different IT systems in a trustworthy manner such as applications spanning whole supply chains and enterprise networks. Such a platform consists of soft- and hardware. The solutions to be implemented shall use the standards of Trusted Computing, which describe at their heart a trust anchor. VOGUE is based on the hardware properties of Trusted Computing and mobile devices and makes available a software architecture, which helps to achieve stronger trust in the devices by the service providers. The security mechanisms can be used on different mobile platforms. In particular, SMEs will have methods and tools at hand which sustainably increase trust of possible customers in novel sensitive applications by means of the results of the VOGUE project. With the help of the scenario "Mobile access of an external to an enterprise network", the increased security provided by the VOGUE solution will be proven.

SiWear (Sichere Wearable Systems)
The project aims at the economic breakthrough for mobile wearable information and communication technologies in manufacturing companies and their after-sales processes. Computer systems, worn on the body during use like a watch, offer possibilities for a deeper immersion of information technology in work processes and for seamless integration in existing infrastructure and support processes. "Wearable and mobile Computing follows the paradigm of information and business processes being available anywhere and anytime without the users primary attention being given to the computer system (analogy: vehicle navigation based on GPS signals contratry to stationary route planning). The lack of user acceptance of new wearable technology, among others based on security concerns, insufficient process integration and hardware technology not meeting the requirements of productive environments, are main obstacles to reach existing potentials. Application specific system integration using commercial-off-the-shelf componentes will be evaluated alongside usability studies on how to increase user acceptance and ensuring the actual usablity of wearable systems in industrial appliances. Test implementations of secure, organisationally efficient and practical wearable computing solutions will be realized for the selected fields of application in commissioning as well as diagnostics, service and repair.

EdiNet (E-learning in Distributed Data Network Laboratory)
11/2009 bis 10/2012
The Project aims to achieve the best and the most effective results of Data Network education and that require proper Laboratory equipment. Studying technology is very device oriented and costs of executing teaching could rise very high. Without the sufficient laboratory exercises students don't assimilate data network devices distinct and real operation. This fact also raises the need for new pedagogical approaches: how to make the students to learn in most effective way. Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences aims to establish a semi-virtual campus between European partners. The main aim of the project is to create an e-learning and e-research environment based of the ideas of a life-long learning for the students, experts and researchers in special focus of promoting data network management competences. The biggest difference if you compare to traditional e-learning environment is that the exercises can be done through Internet connection using real devices interactively. Configurations that are used for tasks can be saved for next time. The Laboratory network can be used also as a research and test base. Based our knowledge, this is a unique e-learning environment, which will revise and develop the Data Network laboratories as a platform for efficient e-learning. The aim is to realize remote distance learning and develop and test innovative pedagogical models in Distributed data network environment.

Dual Mode Degree Course in Computer Science B.Sc.
Dual Mode Degree Course in Computer Science B.Sc. The dual, inter-university degree course in Computer Science leads to a professional practice qualifying degree. The close cooperation of training in companies, in the vocational school and study at the Bremen University of Applied Sciences and/or the University of Bremen results in practically-oriented, solidly academic training. Students attend vocational school during the first three years of study at the SII Utbremen Educational Centre, the Bremen site for commerce school instruction for all IT occupations. Teaching is organised in block class. Knowledge that is both necessary to the profession of the IT Specialist and relevant to the examinations is taught here, including business and social studies, business processes, project management, IT systems and application development. This constitutes enhanced instruction before the intermediate and final degree examinations for IT specialists. Acquisition of mathematical and information technology foundations is emphasised during the first to third semester; from the fourth to the eighth semester of the degree course, students will specialise and deepen their knowledge of the field. Students who complete above-average Bachelor degrees will have the opportunity to acquire a consecutive Master degree. The intermediate examination is held after 1.5 years and the final IT Specialist degree examination after 3 years; the final examination is through the chamber of commerce. After approximately 4 years, the IT education culminates in the Bachelor degree. In comparison with traditional commerce training followed by university study, this degree course enables students to attain their degree up to two and a half years more quickly, internship periods being included in the total duration.
