Small children still use a form of the so-called dandy horse, balance bike or draisine, which the inventor Karl von Drais first tested on a longer route on 12 June 1817. Now, 200 years later, computer scientists at Saarland University are making the forerunner of the bicycle attractive for adults. Their prototype, still made of wood, contains an e-motor, battery, sensors and mini-computer.With their “Draisine 200.0” the computer scientists are testing the validity of mathematical proofs, among other things to improve the safety of e-bike software. Holger Hermanns is a professor of computer science at Saarland University. With his basic research, he wants to help the fast-growing e-bike industry avoid programming errors that have already affected other industries. “If we succeed in making automatic software verification an industry standard, we will no longer have to go through things like the diesel scandal,” says Hermanns.
