Overview of the scope & capabilities of our labs

The Digital Service Innovation Lab showcases strategic innovations in the domains of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Robotics. The lab provides the space and infrastructure to develop and incubate novel digital services, which include data-driven, continuous and highly-automated Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) offerings.

An extension to the Innovation Lab is the Digital Service Innovation Makerspace which provides the space and tools to fabricate, prototype and integrate systems comprising hardware and software. This is instrumental to achieve a key strategic direction of reinventing TÜV SÜD’s TIC core business, which is the development of data-driven, continuous and highly-automated TIC offerings.
