Ingolf Krueger / Car Software / San Diego Union Tribune

Ingolf Krueger, a computer science and engineering professor at the Jacobs School, is quoted in a story today about the runaway Prius in the San Diego Union Tribune. Read the full story by Mike Lee here.

Krueger directs the "Service-Oriented Software and Systems Engineering Laboratory" (S3EL) in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. He also directs the "Software & Systems Architecture & Integration" (SAINT) functional area within the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2).

KPBS recently tapped Krueger's expertise in automotive software, for a piece called "Are Car Electronics Too Complex?"

Some links to Krueger's work with car software is below:

This past fall, Krueger co-organized the Symposium on Automotive/Avionics
Systems Engineering (SAASE) 2009

In 2008, Krueger co-organized the Automotive Systems Track at the
International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE):

Krueger also co-organized the 2004 and 2006 Automotive Software Workshops.

Two of Krueger's grad students are presenting research on improving the diagnostic systems of cars at Research Expo 2010, the graduate student research showcase of the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.

Calit2 researchers at UC San Diego honored for innovations in networking

Researchers from the University of California, San Diego participated in two of the four groundbreaking projects that today were named recipients of the 2010 Innovations in Networking Awards. The awards are given annually by the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) for the innovative use and expansion of high-performance networking.

For the third year in a row, the award for Experimental/Developmental Applications went to researchers affiliated with the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2). UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering electrical and computer engineering professor George Papen picked up the award on behalf of his colleagues on the Scalable Energy Efficient Datacenters (SEED) project.

In 2009, Calit2's GreenLight project – which also focuses on energy efficiency in computing -- picked up the same award, and in 2008, the award in the same category went to CineGrid, the digital cinema consortium incubated in the UCSD division of Calit2.

Calit2 was also honored indirectly in the High Performance Networking Applications category, for its joint project with Australia's Monash University. Monash professor David Abramson accepted the award on behalf of the two institutions.
