My name is Dr. Frank Gut (former Doelitzscher). I have been a PhD student at the Centre for Security, Communications and Network Research at Plymouth University (GB) and the Cloud Research Lab at University of Applied Sciences Furtwangen, Germany. My research interests are in the area of autonomous driving, IT security and cloud computing. Please contact me if you are interested in our work! You can also find more information of our past and current projects on our Institute for Data Science, Cloud Computing and IT Security (IDACUS) website.

Currently, I work as a System Integration Architect for Autonomous Driving vehicles. Visit our web page for more information: Urban Automated Driving
