IT-Award @ Ideenwettbewerb

Nov 12, 2014

The IT-Award  at the Ideenwettbewerb Schleswig-Holstein (Ideas Contest) was given to our group this year. Thorsten Ehlers and Philipp Sieweck have developed a tool to automatically detect race conditions in concurrent embedded code. Race conditions belong to a class of software errors that are particularly hard to detect by traditional methods of software quality assurance. Together with Julian Göller, a student of business administration, and the academic mentoring of Dirk Nowotka, they aim to spin-off the idea.
