The Networked Embedded Systems Lab is a research group in the Department of Computer Science at University of Freiburg led by Marco Zimmerling. We are also affiliated with the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden at TU Dresden. Our research interests lie at the intersection of embedded systems and wireless networking, with the overarching goal of making cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things more dependable and sustainable.
We currently have several PhD positions available in our group. Please check out the job ad.
We are active in multiple research areas, a subset of which include:
- Distributed battery-free systems: Bonito [NSDI’22], Find & Flync [NSDI’21], Shepherd [SenSys’19]
- Control over wireless networks: [TCPS’22], [PIEEE’21], [L-CSS’20], [TCPS’20], [ICCPS’19]
- End-to-end real-time guarantees: TTW [ECRTS’20], Blink [TCPS’17], DRP [RTSS’16]
- Synchronous transmissions: RSSISpy [EWSN’22], [CSUR’20], [Sci. Rep.’18], Glossy [IPSN’11]
- Low-power wireless networking: Butler [EWSN’22], Mixer [SenSys’18], BLEach [SenSys’17]
