Ideas drive us - we drive ideas.

Research and development

Sensodrive has been developing for globally recognized research institutes, universities and companies for over twenty years.
In that time it has accumulated some incredible success stories. Most of these small and big stories are subject to secrecy, which of course we strictly adhere to.

But what would research be without a quick peek or two behind the scenes?
Here we tell of interesting research projects that have been kindly released by our customers, our latest developments and our passion for innovation.
Discover progress here and now.
