Logistics and information systems

Logistics and information systems Research Cluster

By linking the disciplines of "logistics" and "information systems" in a research cluster, we conduct applied research to identify, evaluate and realise potential for logistics and related areas. For example, we are bringing together the areas of digitalisation and maritime processes.


Media & Systems Engineering

The Institute Media & Systems Engineering (IMSE) conducts applied research and development on constructive and analytical methods to increase the quality of software systems and multimedia applications. The institute's work is carried out in close cooperation with bachelor and master projects as well as theses in the fields of application-oriented computer science, business informatics and digital media production.

Smart Mobility Institute

The Research Institute conducts research and development at the regional, national and international level within the research framework of Smart Mobility.

Artificial Intelligence Methods and Information Mining

As a highly innovative research institution, the Institute of Artificial Intelligence Methods and Information Mining (AIM) offers excellent conditions for investigating the opportunities, challenges and risks of artificial intelligence. For decades, intelligent solutions for complex problems have been developed there.

Research projects

Software Testing

Since 2011, the survey "Software Testing in Practice and Research" has been conducted repeatedly in cooperation with the universities of Bremerhaven, Cologne and Bremen and the German, Austrian and Swiss Testing Boards. Thus, more than 10 years of data are available, which provide insights into trends and challenges around the quality assurance of software in the German-speaking region.


The aim of the KuPoB project is the conceptual design of the conversion of a police vehicle to a fuel cell vehicle under taking into account the multifunctional operational requirements. Furthermore the operating and investment costs and the savings potential of resources, energy and emissions are examined.


The core object of the NaCl project is the development and piloted application of an novel, socially, ecologically and economically sustainable last mile logistics system based on a crowd approach, in which studentical drivers are allocated on-demand to transport orders during peak loads with electric bicycles.


The aim of H2BPMM is to develop the necessary infrastructure for the H2-drive technology through a standardized description of the processes in the form of models and to make the processes more transparent. A exemplary process is the approval of stationary and mobile H2 filling stations.


H2Cool is researching how H2- and fuel cell technology can be used in temperature-controlled logistics. The aim is to develop a technical, ecological, economic, legal and safety-relevant concepts for H2 technology in temperature-controlled transport and to prepare the prototypical implementation of an H2 refrigerated trailer.


The main subject of the R3 project is the conception and software-technical design of a regional retail platform for the Northwest Metropolitan Region. The goal is to strengthen the competitiveness of the regional retail trade and the regional cooperation of retailers and logistics service providers.
