Martin Benedikt

Martin Benedikt studied telematics at the Technical University in Graz with focus on control systems and system theory.

In 2008 he started his career at the VIRTUAL VEHICLE Research Center in the Area 'Electrics/Electronics and Software'. Motivated by industry and along several R&D activities there he invented an energy-preserving coupling approach for non-iterative co-simulation during his PhD, based on novel system-oriented system considerations. This approach served as solid basis for follow-up research activities on model-based schemes for extending co-simulation to the real-time domain.

Since 2014 he is leading the team 'Co-simulation and Software' at the VIRTUAL VEHICLE Research Center. The main work is dedicated to pursuing scientific work on co-simulation approaches and related methodologies, besides initiating national and European research initiatives, like the ACOSAR project for specifying a distributed co-simulation protocol, known as DCP MAP. He is a steering member of the DCP MAP and actively supporting FMI developments. His team is developing a co-simulation platform representing a central element of the neutral co-simulation platform Model.CONNECT with the basic aim of transferring recent research outcomes to industrial applications. Since the beginning of 2018 he is additionally responsible for the Area "Efficient Development" at the Research Center with a strong focus on modern, more agile and modular system development approaches.
