Optimal System Behavior by model-based Design

We support your product development from the first idea to prototypical and close to serial implementation.

Our portfolio comprises the support of all stages of the development process. We create design- and simulation models and identify the required parameters. For your systems we develop model-based controls and verify them in simulation studies or with prototypes. Transferring of algorithms into serial code completes this spectrum.
Our long-term experience in the area of HiL-testing (hardware-in-the-loop) makes us to the optimal partner in this domain as well for conception of test benches and automated test procedures.
