Core competence System Technologies

System Technologies ensure a holistic approach: we develop not only components and algorithms, but also complex hardware and software architectures. The resulting information technology systems support humans on the basis of sensor data, automate certain tasks and/or open new ways in human-machine interaction. In doing so, we set the highest standards in terms of interoperability, IT security and data protection/privacy.
