Sensor Solutions

We focus on the development of sensors as well as on provision of sensor solutions.

Sensor Solutions

As a full-service provider, we develop sensors and sensor system solutions. We implement artificial intelligence processes across the entire spectrum, from embedded systems to edge and cloud-based solutions. Together with our partners, we can offer our customers application-specific systems from a single source. Since we work independently of technology and manufacturer, we find the optimal solution for our customers.
Our focus is on solutions for optical, magnetic, chemical and body-hugging sensors. With our complex signal processing and intelligent evaluation algorithms we achieve very efficient, small and inexpensive sensors.
