Smart, networked, intelligent: With our forward-looking research, we are paving the way for innovative products - for machine building and microelectronics, the automobile industry, medical technology and analytics, air and climate technology and other industries that rely on microsystem technology. This means, for example, that we have developed a medical dispensing system that "anticipates" so that the patient doesn't need to worry about correct active ingredient intake. Or the water meter that takes its own readings. There are many other examples of this. Look around you.
