Topics for Theses

In our research we are concerned with the longevity of smart homes. When several devices are updated, it is possible that certain services or automations no longer function. This can happen, if the public interface, that smart homes use to communicate with each other, is changed through software updates. Speficially, we are looking into how devices and services in a smart home can be standardized, to achieve clarity what for example a light bulb is and what functions it can offer. Furthermore, we explore options how to plan the update process through such a standardization, to find the best suited update configuration in the big update space. If you are interested in any of these problems, write me a mail and we can think of a topic that fits into my research area and your skills/interests.

Topics for theses that don’t regard my research

There are some topics i am generally interested in, but that don’t fit my general research direction of “Smart Homes”. If one of these topics interests you, feel free to write me.
