ComTec, we empower the mobile user

The Chair for Communication Technology – ComTec was founded in March 2000 by Prof. Dr. Klaus David. Currently, more than 10 assistants and more than 20 students are working to accomplish the ComTec vision: Empower mobile the user! We are concentrating on new, innovative and mobile applications for digitization of mobility (traffic light control, protection of pedestriains and bicyclists), innovative smart city applications, consulting, training and process optimisation using AI algorithms for industry and trade. The basic technologies we use are: context sensitive applications, virtual/augmented reality and AI algorithms. Context sensity means processing of information (AI). Virtual/augmented reality and AI algorithms are playing an essential and deciding role for the future.

The education and teaching, which include internet technologies and applications, mobile networks, machine learning and artificial intelligence as well as software technologies like C#, Swift or Java , is strengthened by a research-oriented approach. That way we are preparing the students in our chair at best for their future jobs in research or industry.

ComTec works together with numerous national and international partners in research and industry and is an active member at WWRF, IEEE (VTS, Communications and Computer Society) and EnOcean.

Members of ComTec are participating actively at different conferences (IEEE VTC, IEEE PerCom, ACM UbiComp, NetSys) as authors or organizers. We founded the successful start-up PhoneTec which develops mobile applications, to support our vision. ComTec is one founding partner of the institute ITeG.
