Deggendorf, Germany, 04 September 2018 * * * congatec – a leading vendor of standardized and customized embedded computer boards and modules – announces its cooperation with the IoT Innovation Lab at the University of Applied Sciences (HAW) Landshut, which is supported by the Bavarian Center for Digitalization (Zentrum Digitalisierung.Bayern, ZD.B) and the State Ministry for Science and Art (StMWK). The purpose of the cooperation is to prepare students for the practical development and use of IoT technologies while also promoting the development of vendor-independent standards. The first successful completed joint project is the implementation of a modular software component for the UIC interface standard released by the SGET e.V. (Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies). Further projects will follow.

Prof. Dr. Abdelmajid Khelil emphasizes the importance of cooperating with industry partners such as congatec: “Students need practical industry challenges to enable them to develop digitization prototypes for real-world applications instead of working inside an academic ivory tower. Modular systems such as congatec’s embedded computer technology and SGET’s UIC standard, which defines a kind of universal modular IoT connector on the software side, are also excellent examples of scientifically recognized development methods. As a result, this cooperation brings theory and practice together in perfect harmony.”

The UIC project, which saw several students working in groups to develop a solution for exchanging data between a computer and a cloud using agile software and system development methods, was mentored by Carsten Rebmann, R&D Director at congatec. Together with lab coach Tobias Christian Piller, he coordinated the project work with the HAW Landshut IoT Innovation Lab, defined the requirements for the software component prototype and monitored project milestone compliance.

Rebmann is enthusiastic about the cooperation with the IoT Innovation Lab and students’ commitment: “I greatly enjoyed coordinating the project with Professor Khelil and the very dedicated coach of the Innovation Lab, Tobias Christian Piller, as well as supervising the group work. Next to developing a concrete component for SGET’s UIC standard, the goal was to explore the journey to get there by trying out solution ideas and creating proof-of-concepts with agile development methods such as Scrum. Thanks to the great commitment from the university and students, this has worked out extremely well and we are looking forward to implementing further projects.”

The results of the IoT project, which counts as a specialization module and during which the “UIC Communication Engine for Amazon Web Services (AWS)” was developed, will be incorporated into the SGET standards and made publicly available under MIT license on the online software development platform GitHub. The MIT license makes it possible to distribute reviews and larger projects without releasing the source code. The results of the students’ open-source IoT project are accessible to the entire community and described in detail at

The spokesman for the student development team, Sebastian Niksch, confirms that despite the great challenges, the project was highly enjoyable: “Actively developing components for digital transformation and knowing that they will be included in standards and probably used worldwide gives us a sense of pride. At the same time, we have gained deeper insight in concrete IoT challenges faced by industry, and learned through practical experience how to approach them methodically. Also, we now understand the challenge of connecting the IoT with hundreds of clouds and even more field devices much better. Uniform standards like the SGET seem to make great sense under those circumstances.”
