Technology for Pervasive Computing

Analytics Sensors Interaction

The TECO research group was founded in 1993 at the University of Karlsruhe (now KIT – Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) for R&D in applied telematics in close collaboration with the industry.

Ubiquitous Computing is the cornerstone of work and competence, with Mobile Computing, HCI, Sensor/Actor Networks (especially Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Distributed Collaborative Systems (especially Internet of Things, IoT)), Sensor Big Data Analytics,  and Context-Sensitive Systems as current research foci.

We are heading Germany’s Big Data Centre, the Smart Data Innovation Lab (SDIL) and co-heading Baden-Württembergs Smart Data Solution Center (SDSC).

TECO is associated with the chair of Pervasive Computing Systems group of the Institute of Telematics at the KIT which covers the education activities.

TECO distinguishes itself in being close to industry both with respect to its funding model and its participation in “real-world projects” with a range of partners in the software and hardware industries and companies that apply pervasive computing technology (e.g. in the context of Industry 4.0).

Many of our projects results, software and documentation are Open Source and can be found at GitHub.
