Digital Technologies Research Group
The research group „Digital Technologies“ focuses on applied research topics in the areas of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) with special competences in the fields Sense & Feedback, Interactive Environments & Workflows and Technology Assessment & Evaluation. Additionally, the research group is capable of rapidly creating hardware and software prototypes for a range of different real-world application scenarios. Currently, the two major application domains of the research group are Digital Healthcare and Digitalization in Industrial Production (“Industrie 4.0”).
We perform basic and applied research, carry out contract research and conduct consulting projects. Our network in academia and industry includes highly specialized regional SMEs as well as global industrial players and top-ranked international universities. In our R&D projects, we cover all aspects of design science research, a problem-driven approach characterized by the systematic analysis, design, creation, and evaluation of digital artefacts.
