Our R&D engineers develop breakthrough technologies that change the way the world works and industries do business. We concentrate on two areas: short-term evolutionary innovations to existing products and services and long-term disruptive innovations crucial to maintaining and strengthening our position as a leader in innovation as well as supporting future growth. In our research and development center, we focus on the six areas that match CHIST’s core technologies: medical engineering, computer vision, artificial intelligence, agriculture, robotics, and mechatronics. Experts in our labs work on specific projects with technologists in the business units, concentrating on applying research findings. Where successful, product or technology development continues in the business units.
