About us

Our values and our company

Company

LTS AG specialises in the development of complex technological solutions in the fields of transport and energy management and brings together the fields of electronics, hardware and software development, physics and mathematics in a marketable way. We develop to the highest industrial standards, ensure readiness for series production right up to pilot series and supervise key projects in processing and after sales support. Therefore, the entire software architecture is carried out in-house. With this approach, the bundled competences, the proven industrial proximity and decades of market experience, we are unique in Switzerland and in the German-speaking neighbouring countries.

 

Our outstanding team combines unique expert knowledge in machine-to-machine communication at the interface and data transmission to a central control centre. This piece of the puzzle in the linking of objects to control sensors and systems in a network, the “Interface-of-Things” transmits and analyses accruing data volumes highly automated and with the highest precision. This bundled know-how across the entire chain of digital and analogue engineering enables us to provide our customers with additional valuable interdisciplinary knowledge and to generate maximum added value for all partners involved.

 

Whether it is a system concept for the integration of machines and sensors via algorithms into a network or selective support in the selection of suitable hardware, state-of-the-art technologies or the selection and integration of new storage technologies – as an independent company we are a forward-looking development partner for our customers for complete solutions in the software and hardware sector.

On the basis of the highest technological competence and a deep understanding of the requirements of urban society, LTS AG is solving an acute market problem with its modular complete solutions - the wireless ground detection sensor for roads and car parks (TAPS) - and is consistently leading the transport sector into the digital future.
