Overview of projects at VSR
Research in the CRC 1410 Hybrid Societies pertains to the interaction with Embodied Digital Technologies (EDTs) as artificial bodies moving in real or virtual environments, but also to wearable EDTs extending and enhancing the human body as well as to those that provide evolutionary novel experiences to the human mind.
The National Action Plan 2.0 for the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities of June 2016 as well as several legislative proposals are targeted a way to an inclusive society. Our Vision of the Junior Research Group DYNAMIK (Dynamic Navigation and Orientation System for Physical impaired people in complex buildings) it is at this point, solutions to explore for a comprehensive and equal social participation of people with disabilities and the results in the Saxon industry.
The aim of the WIR! start-up project is to develop a smart, multimodal and networked mobility concept for a mobility area in the Chemnitz-Erzgebirge region to be defined in the course of the project. The concept is to strengthen the public transport system in the mentioned region, making best use of locally available infrastructures and, where necessary, complementing them in a meaningful way, and at the same time improving the ecological and economic sustainability of the mobility there by means of a more comprehensive use of public and collaborative mobility services.
Establishing a research information infrastructure at TUC
The aim of the project is to establish a holistic research information infrastructure at Chemnitz University of Technology as well as the associated processes and governance structures in order to enable the organization, access, processing and transfer of research information and results for different stakeholder groups.
This measure is co-financed with tax revenue on the basis of the budget adopted by the Saxon Landtag.
The innovative growth core project Linked Enterprise Data Services (LEDS) is aiming at developing, establishing and merchandising the next generation of semantic, interlinked data driven applications and services based on the Linked Data paradigm. In order to achieve this goal, LEDS develops a technology platform, which will include competences, methods and concrete technological building blocks. The project is directly in line with the development of Web 3.0 and with the 2020 strategy for eGovernment.
The mission of the eHealth Research Lab project is to research and develop software and quality approaches for eHealth software solutions in today's ICT environments
MockupDD project intends to combine the high degree of end-user involvement provided by agile methodologies, with the productivity provided by MDWE (Model-Driven Web Engineering). MockupDD uses interface mockups (popular in code-based agile processes) to gather interaction and functional requirements, and then reuses them throughout the whole development process as valuable model specifications. These specifications provide also the foundation required to generate running web applications (even partially) by following an iterative enrichment process. MockupDD intends to be a hybrid agile and model-driven methodology to analyze, design and implement web applications. It promotes intensive end-user participation by incorporating user interface mockups as a common language between them and the development team. At the same time, MockupDD relies in the productivity provided by MDWE methodologies to quickly derive web applications from high-level models.
The WebComposition/DGS continues the research within the WebComposition field and constitutes the first component of the fourth generation of the WebComposition approach. The WebComposition/DGS addresses the increasing need to store, access, manage and to publish ultra large amounts of data over the World Wide Web using a RESTful approach. The developed component addresses both, complex business-related scenarios as well as requirements in the context of Web2.0. The formal description of system-transcending relations allows furthermore modeling the interaction of different system components.
The convergence of Telecom, IT and content services drives new emerging service markets based on an open Internet of Services. Mashups have gained big success in the so-called Web 2.0. The success of the Web 2.0 services has encouraged Telcos to expose their services as Telco Mashups, in order to provide third parties with facilities to build their business. Moreover, the exposure of network infrastructure as services is facilitating the entry of new API-driven telco agents that bring traditional telco services (telephony, messaging, IP location, etc.) to the Web. Yet, the technologies underlying each of the different mashup types are heterogeneous, which makes integration challenging. Also, mashups do not offer a universal composition model either, since mashup development is not vendor independent. A mashup developed within a specific technology has to be re-coded in order to be deployed in another engine. In this landscape, OMELETTE aims at researching on the development, management, governance, execution and conception of converged services with a specific focus on the telco domain. OMELETTE will create a sound model of mashups that follows the REST architectural style (also supported by standard widget technology), as well as a standard specification of a mashup-containing platform that may guarantee portability and interoperability among different vendors and versions. These concepts will be based on a solid theoretical model of mashup foundations and the specific requirements gained from the telco domain. OMELETTE will aim at breaking the barriers between the web, telecommunication and hybrid services, taking into account the convergence of IT/telecom/content systems. OMELETTE will foster as well the reuse of existing components and mashups, thanks to its automated service discovery functionalities. Project OMELETTE aims at developing an open platform for building convergent mashups for the telco domain to be used within several industry-driven use cases.
Research and Development for ARC Solutions
The project is concered with platform-independent access to and control of a product lifecycle management software (Siemens Teamcenter) by using a web service interface.
Research and Development for GIG-E-Vision / BGAPI
The project focuses research and development of drivers and platform-independent applications for the GIG-E-Vision standard. GIG-E-Vision allows the connection of cameras and computers via Gigabit-Ethernet.
The research project Web-based Federation Technologies for Science (codename "Hanoi") is concerned with the practical application of federated Web technology in real-life scenarios. This covers e.g. single-sign on access across Web sites, inter-organizational use of Web services, or federation management with the help of architecture registries.
The BMS project deals with the conception, development and operation of an education information system in the form of a Web portal. The mission of this portal is to provide unified access to educational offers within the Free State Saxony. Project activities also involve the creation of interfaces for the exchange of data between multiple institutions and enterprises.
