  • Automatic documentation generation for model-based languages (Bachelor)
    Develop an automatic SCCharts documentation & comment system
  • Merging SCCharts and KLOTS (Bachelor)
    Implement KLOTS as demonstrator extension of the KIELER SCCharts implementation
  • On the usability of the KIELER SCCharts compiler (Bachelor)
    Evaluate the actual implementation of the KIELER SCCharts compiler and provide suggestions for improvements, i.e. the usability as standalone (commandline) compiler

  • Validation Manager for Models (Bachelor/Master)
    Develop an integrated, flexible and generic syntactic validation framework for models (e.g. Esterel or SyncCharts).
  • SCCharts compiler validation with Esterel (Bachelor/Master)
    Automate the validation of the SCCharts compiler using the Esterel simulation.
  • Transformation from SCCharts to Esterel (Bachelor/Master)
    Develop a transformation in Xtend2 to generate Esterel code for SCCharts.
  • Hardware Synthesis from SCCharts to FPGA (Bachelor/Master)
    Use the circuit-based code generation approach to produce code for FPGAs
  • Optimization of the SCCharts compiler (Bachelor/Master)
    Profile the actual SCCharts compiler and apply optimizations; also evaluate the possibility to use multiple cores for compilation
  • Optimization of the SCCharts transformations (Bachelor/Master)
    Profile the actual SCCharts transformations and apply optimizationsSCCharts Andriod backend for Mini Drones (Bachelor/Master)  [work in progress, Bachelor/Master project summer term 2015]
    Develop a new code generation backend for SCCharts for Andriod applications with Mini Drones as demonstrator
  • On the pragmatics of modelling large models in SCCharts (Bachelor/Master)
    Evaluate the possibilities to create and maintain large models in model-based languages (i.e. SCCharts) and provide suggestions for improvements
  • Extend the SC MoC to handle priority-based variable accesses (Bachelor/Master)
    Add priorities to variable accesses to extend the SC MoC and therefore the number of valid sequentially constructive synchronous programs.

  • Detecting tick boundaries in SCCharts (Master/Bachelor)
    Implement an algorithm that detects tick boundaries (in concurrent) threads and therefore improves the scheduling
  • Efficient data dependency analyses in SCCharts (Master/Bachelor)
    Implement data dependency analyses for SCCharts to improve static scheduling of the compiler
  • KIELER evaluation environment for synchronous languages (Master/Bachelor)
    Develop a reliable evaluation environment to compare common synchronous languages (i.e. Esterel/SyncCharts & SCCharts)
  • Raceyard evaluation (Master/Bachelor)
    Evaluate the possibility for the use of SCCharts in the Raceyard context and pave the way for future experiments

  • Quartz (Master)
    Integrate the synchronous Quartz language into KIELER for validation purposes and teaching.
  • Implementation of a priority-based compilation approach (Master) [work in progress, Caroline Butschek]
    Implement the SyncCharts priority-based compilation approach into the SCCharts compiler chain.
  • From Esterel to SCL (Master) [work in progress, Karsten Rathlev]
    Implement transformations that translate Esterel programs to SCL 
  • Curing Schizophrenia in SCCharts (Master)
    Develop new synchronizer to handle schizophrenia properly (e.g. depth join).
    Railway 4.0 (Master) [work in progress, Nis Wechselberg]
    Design a new and modern hardware controlling (Version 4) for the railway installation.

    Add dataflow to SCCharts
    Multithreaded/Multicore execution of SCCharts (Master/Bachelor)  [work in progress, Tibor Weiß]
    Evaluate possibilities to preserve parallelism in SCCharts, implement mapping for (fine grained) multithreading and multicore 
    based on the FlexPRET processor.
