Research Division ESS

The research division Embedded Systems and Sensors Engineering (ESS) deals with innovative technologies, design methods and applications for and of embedded systems. We design, develop and evaluate practical applications involving embedded systems – from model-based design methods and tools via technology-oriented research to application-oriented research and development projects.

Our division's variety of competences ranging from electronics, to software engineering, optics and optoelectronics, microsystem technology, and sensors, is unique. In particular, we focus on research projects and applications across disciplines and technologies in automotive electronics, industrial automation, health care, and the social sector.

Our research division ESS covers the full range of the development of embedded systems and cyber physical systems (CPS) with heterogeneous components from microelectronics, micro-optics, micromechanics and telematics.
