Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, founded 1970, is a technical oriented University comprising nine departments with about 150 professors. Approximately 8000 students are currently registered. The University has a high reputation: 2 Frauenhofer Institutes, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, a Max-Planck Institute for Software Systems and several other institutes are embedded in the University.

The Chair of Real-Time Systems has been involved in a number of international and national projects, including the EU Networks-of-Excellence ARTIST in FP6 and FP7. It has particular expertise in scheduling methods for the integration of time triggered and event triggered activities of mixed criticality demands, such as predictability or flexibility, individually for system activities, instead of system wide paradigms. The expertise has been reflected in a number of related EU IST projects managed by the embedded systems unit, including FIRST (coordinator) and DREAMS. Research of the chair has laid the base to resource management on mixed criticality networked systems and in a number of collaborative projects.

Another focus has been providing timeliness guarantees and virtualization on networked multi core platforms explicitly considering resource dependencies. The group is well established within the real-time systems and embedded system community, as underlined by continuous publications and leadership in relevant conferences and journals.
