Course description

In this course you develop a mobile application in the context of a larger system architecture. Depending on the project, you work with application servers, machine learning algorithms, smart sensors, intelligent clothing, wearables like the Apple Watch or micro-controllers.

You get to know the workflows, activities and tools of state-of-the-art agile software engineering, in particular agile hardware/software co-development, from requirements engineering to system delivery. In particular, you learn Apple’s programming language Swift, UI frameworks like UIKit and SwiftUI, and Server-Side Swift. In addition, you will gain hands-on knowledge in the fields of system modeling, usability engineering and continuous integration and delivery.

For this course, industry partners provide real problem statements. You get real team and project experience while working tightly together with a real client towards a real deadline.

The chart shows the project-based organization of the course. All projects are shown as columns, including information about the customer, project management, and student team. A team of twelve student coaches dealt with the project management of the teams. Furthermore, cross-project teams with one member of each team (horizontal bars) dealt with different aspects during the project. The release management team was in charge of the right usage of version control, continuous integration, continuous delivery, and feedback management. The Usability Engineering team kept an eye on usability aspects and metrics of the mobile applications. The modeling team was responsible for the modeling activities, including the creation of informal models, i.e., trailer, mockups, and UML diagrams, to improve the communication of difficult aspects within the team.


Project: Deutsches Herzzentrum

The Heart Risk Manager is an App that helps users better understand and improve their cardiovascular health. Different scientific risk-scores based on the users health data are calculated and presented. The accumulated data can then be donated to researchers and only after giving permission, the users personal data will leave the device.

Project: Equinux

FlurFunk is an enterprise app that coordinates the sync- and asynchronous communication between colleagues in Home Office. From the app you could set up quizzes to ask your colleagues questions, schedule meetings and share your status with everyone. By integrating gamification features such as streaks in these routine tasks, the FlurFunk app makes remote work more connected and efficient. The FlurFunk uses EventKit and OpenID to keep your schedule up to date and to provide direct access with your companies account.

Project: Gemeinde Kirchheim

Kirchheim is subject to big change as the population is projected to increase by over 30%. Several public buildings like a new school, kindergarten and city hall will be build by 2030. Accompanying, the municipality wants to use various data sources like historical data sets and real-time air and traffic sensors to minimize uncertainty and forecast changes. TransparenCity supports Kirchheim along the way by turning unstructured data into simple graphs for easily understandable insights into ISO indicators as performance measures and calculating and visualizing relationships between indicators and overarching categories.

Project: Interactive Wear

Respirastic is an app that helps people to monitor and understand their current health status. By collecting and analyzing respiration and body temperature data collected via a wearable sensor strap to identify symptoms (like cough attacks), Respirastic allows its users to detect respiratory diseases at an early stage. Using a segment detection algorithm combined with Machine Learning helps to reliably identify cough attacks based on the collected sensor data by taking into account the specificities of each user’s physical condition.

Project: MSG

MyScore is an app that helps people track their produced carbon footprint caused by their transportation behaviors. By tracking movements using Apple’s motion coprocessor and GPS locations and calculating produced carbon footprint, myScore raises its users’ environmental awareness. Also, by providing ranking information between colleagues and presenting achievements, myScore motivates users to change their transportation habits.

Project: PINO

The PINO TheraMe iOS application provides a solution for physiotherapists and their patients to conduct physiotherapy remotely. This is made possible by providing distinct features for both the therapist and the patient and can be beneficial especially throughout the Corona pandemic. In addition, it can support patients from rural areas to get fast access to physiotherapy and tackles the shortage of therapists in general and especially outside cities. Therapists have the ability to configure individualized exercise programs for their patients. Patients can then conduct their program and leave ratings for single exercises or the whole workout plan. The exercise execution can be supported by augmented reality features which allow patients to check for the correct range of motions within their exercises.

Project: Quartett Mobile

RentX is a mobile app for convenient booking of electric vehicles. It shows the location of rentable cars in the neighbourhood as well as other car-specific information like battery status, engine performance, and extra features. Once a car is booked, RentX allows planning the route including charging stops along the way. Moreover, it presents a digital key for remote car control. It offers features like car locking and unlocking, climate adjustment, and sending the planned route to the car, all via a touch of a button.

SoftRack is an app that helps speed up testing of autonomous parking by simulating the parking process. In reality there are multiple issues like test subject safety that slow the testing, while injecting an event in the app is a matter of seconds. The changed car trace can then be visualised and streamed to an external device. The application is extensible to other events of test interest.

Project: Siemens

In the world of Internet of Things, a lot of data is collected, evaluated and typically stored and provided by a central instance. SiCollect gives people access to these central data pools, that they can search or request information from to get the desired knowledge. Like humans, who build and share their local and private knowledge, we also treat digital data as distributed knowledge of loosely coupled systems. SiCollect enables users to share this knowledge with others, who are interested in it in a fast and uncomplicated way.
