Digital Life: More than Connecting Devices

Smart Living in the Digital Society – Intelligent living and working environments for digitalized citizens

We offer solutions for intelligent living & working environments for digitalized citizens in four spaces:

  • Safer living spaces
  • Healthy and comfortable living spaces (e.g. quality monitoring of food and drinking water, audio systems in consumer electronics, generation of holographic images, mobility and urbanization - quality of life in urban areas)
  • Self-anticipating living spaces (e.g. fragrance dosing, smart home, smart living - living and working in the knowledge society)
  • Securing sustainable living spaces (e.g. environmental monitoring/control, sensor networks and middleware, platforms)
