To be leading in high-tech product innovation, industry requires latest embedded system engineering capabilities and skills. It is here that ESI comes in, partnering in the development and deployment of strategic knowledge for design and engineering of complex high-tech systems and applications.

Innovation focus

The successful development of high-tech systems or applications relies on the ability to perform state-of-the art embedded systems engineering within a rapidly changing technology environment. This increasingly requires a multi-disciplinary approach with multi-objective trade-offs.

ESI focuses on the development of new methods and techniques for system design and engineering to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, quality and costs of product development.

We collaborate with a wide range of industrial and academic partners, combining the strengths of both worlds.

Programme lines

To address the multi-disciplinary design challenges, and incorporate the correct system-level qualities and extra-functional requirements in today’s high-tech products, ESI focuses on four key innovation areas:
• system performance
• system quality & reliability
• future-proof systems
• systems in context
