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 Context-Sensitive Systems, HCI, Sensor/Actor Networks, Distributed Collaborative Systems, and Mobile Computing as current research foci.
TECO is associated with the Pervasive Computing Systems group of the Institute of Telematics at the KIT but 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.
