About us


The Institute of Telematics (ITM) develops new technological solutions that address the challenges of a world increasingly interconnected by physical devices and virtual software components. The institute’s objectives and methods are based on the guiding principle that technology should always serve the needs of people within their environment. Members of the ITM work in interdisciplinary project teams that develop innovative components, systems, processes, and applications in cooperation with partners from research and industry.

The ITM provides a quality education that gives students the capabilities to master the complex and novel computer science challenges in both academic and industrial settings with qualified methods and social competency.

The institute sees itself as an engine of technological progress and as a respected partner in international research and development.


The ITM supports enhanced socio-technical processes by creating solutions that balance the interplay between user autonomy and ambient intelligence during communications between people and machines. Towards this end, the ITM develops context-aware services, protocols and applications by creating novel approaches that span the fields of sensor networks, distributed systems, mobile computing, and ubiquitous computing.

ITM team members develop innovative systems, evaluate them in prototypical application scenarios and actively provide knowledge transfer in both academic and industrial settings. In coperation with national and international academic and industrial partners, the ITM extends the state-of-the-art in terms of knowledge and technology by combining sound theoretical foundations with practical implementations.

These contributions are made available in a variety of ways to the scientific community and to the general public, and are continuously integrated into the courses offered by the institute.
