Embedded Systems

‘Embedded Systems’ are computer systems that are embedded in a technical context. The computer takes over the control, regulation and monitoring of a system.

Concrete examples of ’embedded systems’ developed by SCS are a base station for common-frequency broadcasting, industrial ‘smart cameras’ for quality control, an avionics device, cryptography hardware, network switches for cluster applications, smart grid components, as well as driver-assistance systems in the automotive sector.

SCS possesses the entire spectrum of expertise needed for the development of embedded systems:

  • Analysis of customer needs, system design, choice of technology
  • Development of electronics (incl. FPGA, DSP, uC technologies, measurement technology)
  • Software development from Assembler to C/C++/Java
  • Signal processing, algorithm development
  • Production support

  • AI at the Edge: How artificial intelligence moves from cloud to deviceAI at the Edge: How artificial intelligence moves from cloud to device
    (Unfortunately, this presentation is currently only available in German.) In naher Zukunft wird KI zu unserem Alltag gehören. So werden selbstoptimierende Maschinen, Spracherkennung sowie diagnostizierende Medizingeräte uns täglich unterstützen. Die zugrunde liegenden Algorithmen sind extrem leistungsfähig aber auch leistungshungrig. Was steckt wirklich hinter der KI? Wie kann diese «at the edge», also eingebettet im Endgerät laufen, ...

  • Functionality meets design: The rc_visard wins an iF DESIGN AWARD 2018Functionality meets design: The rc_visard wins an iF DESIGN AWARD 2018
    We are extremely proud to announce that the world-renowned design prize iF DESIGN AWARD has been awarded to the rc_visard of our customer Roboception! From the very beginning, it has been one of Roboception’s goals to not only optimize our sensors in terms of functionality, but to make them visually attractive as well. In the end, ...
  • Roboception Teaches Robots how to SeeRoboception Teaches Robots how to See
    Around 3 years after the first ideas, we were able to realize the rc_visard, a 3D-stereo camera for robots, on behalf of the project partners KUKA and Roboception within just 9 months. For this project SCS could rely on their extensive expertise in the electrical development and camera systems. This camera with the on board ...
