Who are we?

fortiss is the research institute of the Free State of Bavaria for the development of software-intensive systems with headquarters in Munich. The scientists at the institute cooperate in research, development and transfer projects with universities and technology companies in Bavaria, Germany and Europe. The focus is on research into state-of-the-art methods, techniques and tools for the development of software- and AI-based technologies for dependable, secure cyber-physical systems such as the Internet of Things (IoT). fortiss is organized in the legal form of a non-profit limited liability company. Shareholders are the Free State of Bavaria (majority shareholder) and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V.

The IIoT competence center of fortiss focuses on the development of computational and networking architectures for advanced IoT applications and use-cases in sectors such as Mobility, Smart Cities, Manufacturing, etc. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: Edge computing, in particular decentralised edge architectures; deterministic wireless networking; dynamic container orchestration; information-centric networking; Edge AI.

M.Sc. dissertation – Multi-AP co-OFDMA Resource sharing in Deterministic IIoT (m/f/d)

In Industrial environments such as departmental shop-floors or factory plants, the communication of the different elements is often performed via wired networking systems. Wireless is starting to become introduced in these environments, and its introduction requires further tuning and performance analysis as well as ways to handle aspects such as time synchronization. In fortiss, we have developed a unique deterministic Wi-Fi6/wired simulation framework for the popular network simulator v3.0. The purpose of this dissertation is to support the development of a novel co-OFDMA resource sharing approach for deterministic IIoT scenarios.

Your tasks:

  • Get acquainted with the ns-3 DetNetWiFi framework. (
  • Support the analysis of current co-OFDMA approaches in terms of bounded latency and jitter, for multi-AP environments.
  • Support the development and implementation of a novel multi-AP, TSN-based co-OFDMA resource sharing approach.
  • Develop a performance evaluation for IIoT scenarios be agreed with the supervisor.

Your profile:

  • Completed Bachelor's degree and currently enrolled in a Master’s degree or in a PhD degree in computer science, information systems or similar.
  • Practical experience in programming languages such as Java, C, C++.
  • Practical experience with the wireless MAC Layer.
  • Knowledge of discrete event simulators, and in particular the network simulator v3.0 is preferential.

Our offer:

  • Mentorship and advisorship on the dissertation work development, in alignment with local universities.
  • Working within an exciting international research environment.
  • International work environment.
  • An international and dynamic work environment with highly qualified and motivated colleagues
  • Close cooperation and possible interaction with industrial leaders in the IoT domain.
