Automated Design of interoperable Room Automation Systems

We proudly present AUTERAS, the innovative design tool for room automation system. AUTERAS is capable of automating labor-intensive tasks during planning and design of vendor-independent, interoperable room automation systems, starting at the creation of VDI 3813-2 compliant room control schematics and followed by the selection of appropriate devices and the logical interconnections between them.

  • Builders and Architects

    In addition to the AUTERAS® design tool, the AUTERAS® LITE tool is available for you to get started. It queries the functional customer requirements and determines the necessary standard functions, sensors, etc., which must be covered by the room automation devices to be used. At the moment AUTERAS® LITE ist just available in German.

  • Consultation

    Every 1st Tuesday of the month we offer an introduction to the AUTERAS® tool in the form of a telco. Please send an e-mail to

    A screencast of the tool can be found here.

50 years of computer science in Dresden

Matthias Lehmann at the exhibitionWith Darmstadt, Karlsruhe, Munich and Saarbrücken, Dresden is one of the locations where the first university computer science study courses were established in Germany in 1969. This date marks the 50th anniversary of 2019, because at the TU Dresden the information processing section was founded on 1 January 1969. On September 1 of the same year, the first year began his studies. Informatics education is the foundation for a successful future - digitizing the opportunity for regional growth. With five decades of research and teaching experience, the TU Dresden is shaping IT specialists for the growing demand for skilled workers in Saxony.


eCl@ass function descriptions

On 07.02.2019 about 80 interested people from business and science came to the eCl@ass Information Day in Dresden to shed light on the topic of eCl@ss and functional descriptions in the light of digitization, automation and standardization.


13th Silicon Saxony Day

Silicon Saxony DayOn 29 May 2018 the 13th Silicon Saxony Day took place. This Silicon Saxony Day was all about "Smart System Hubs".

The topic was HARDWARE.SOFTWARE.CONNECTIVITY. A key topic was the interoperability of networked sensors, controllers and actuators. The professorship for Technical Information Systems is a member of the Silicon Saxony Network and has actively helped shape the 13th Silicon Saxony Day.



Representatives of th IHK ChemnitzTo take advantage of the digital design possibilities and succeed in the fast-paced competition for innovative developments and their added value, the Dresdner Smart Systems Hub relies on a closely networked cooperation of all involved actors. One of the actors of the first hour is the professorship for Technical Information Systems. She is involved in the Smart Systems Hub in order to talk to external stakeholders.


Standard VDI 3812 "Automation functions for residential buildings"

In the new VDI 3812 workgroup, the industry is developing a modular system of automation functions, from which thousands of frequently built living space types can be compiled in planning. This means that complete equipment concepts can be generated from simple checklists in just a few minutes.
