Our vision

With increasing digitisation, the use of autonomous systems will revolutionise the areas of production, logistics and security, and many aspects of our daily life.

TITUS Research aims to actively help shape the change towards greater importance of autonomous systems. With a focus on user-friendliness and the holistic idea of “technology in harmony with society and the environment”, TITUS Research authentically and sustainably pursues the research and development of vehicle systems up to their marketability.

Our profile

At TITUS Research, we develop innovative ideas around the mobility of tomorrow. We conduct applied research & development on autonomous systems, their infrastructures and ecosystems, for the benefit of our partners and clients. This comprehensive approach requires a broad basis of understanding on the one hand and creative know-how from relevant disciplines on the other.

Whether by air, sea or land – we aim to create solutions that can be used efficiently in a wide variety of domains and vehicle classes through intelligent adaptation. To achieve this, we work with high-end technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, virtual or augmented reality.

Behind TITUS Research there is a highly qualified team from the most diverse worlds of experience: innovative, flexible and creative. Highly motivated to shape upcoming transformation processes with applied research.

What are Autonomous Systems?

During their missions, autonomous systems are capable of perceiving and recognising their environment without human intervention. An autonomous system can imitate typical human processing and control mechanisms. Unlike automated systems, which require pre-programmed sequences of actions for their operations and cannot change their sequences of actions independently, autonomous systems are able to achieve their specific goals without detailed programming and can adapt to situational contexts and unpredictable events. The enrichment of our lives by autonomous systems will make the accomplishment of our everyday tasks more precise, efficient, safe and faster. For example, vaccines can be transported to very remote locations in a very short time or large areas can be monitored without the need for human personnel.


What kind of autonomous systems are we dealing with?

We mainly deal with autonomous systems of three categories, each with indoor and outdoor applications: autonomous air vehicles, autonomous surface vehicles and autonomous water vehicles.

Autonomous surface vehicles

Autonomous or unmanned surface vehicles are, as their name says, vehicles that operate autonomously without needing constant human intervention on terrestrial surfaces, and that have the potential of achieving several missions, incrementing efficiency in processes while reducing risks and precious time back to humans. Among the category of autonomous ground vehicles are: road vehicles, railway vehicles, and mobile machines.

Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Autonomous aircraft (UAV: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or UAS: Unmanned Aerial Systems) are already being used in many areas of the economy. As a measuring device, an aid in rescue operations, a means of transporting vaccines or as a solution to the so-called “last mile problem”, the areas of application of drones are numerous and provide considerable advantages.
