Research questions

Olaf Landsiedel does -- mainly data-driven -- systems research on Networked and Distributed Systems. He is particularly passionate about the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Autonomous Systems, Applied Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence, and Edge & Fog Computing. His work is driven by three trends:

  • sensors are everywhere and give near real-time insights in every aspect of the world,
  • AI is here to stay,
  • nearly everything gets programmable.

He and his group love to build systems and play with them. His group release its results as open source and evaluate its work on large-scale testbeds with hundreds of wireless nodes.
