The TTTech Story

It all started with technology, basic research.

TTTech, which stands for Time-Triggered Technology, was established in 1998 as a spin-off of the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) by Professor Hermann Kopetz, his son Georg Kopetz, and his former student Stefan Poledna. Back then, spin-offs with a focus on technology were unheard of in Europe. Our core mission from the outset: to provide reliable computer systems. The basic idea revolved around dependability and real-time safety. How can an overall system keep up safe operation when singular components fail? How can we make safety-critical systems that we use every day in different machines, such as cars, planes, or industrial machinery as dependable and as safe as possible? That was the problem we were trying to solve.

Today, TTTech Group unites technology companies tailoring our core technologies to different markets.  There are roughly 2 million cars on the street with automated driving systems based on our technology. Our solutions are installed in more than 10,000 wind turbines that provide millions of  households with clean, sustainable energy. Our networking solutions have allowed airplanes to safely cover more than one billion flight hours while two million kilometres were covered by spacecraft in deep space. Trains, trucks, snow groomers, and many other machines clock in billions of operating hours with our solutions on board. For now, we have made good on our promise to make computer systems worldwide as safe and dependable as possible. But the journey is never over. We are excited to find out where it will take us next.


Milestones of innovation


TTTech Aerospace is selected by Maxar and Northrop Grumman to supply network and computing platforms for two separate elemets of NASA's Gateway, which will enable the next Moon landing.


TTech Auto  raises USD 285 million (EUR 250 million) from Aptiv PLC (NYSE: APTV) and Audi. TTTech Auto, now valuated at more than 1 billion USD, thus confirms its strong position amid a growing number of auto tech unicorns.


TTTech wins the prestigious Living Standards Award 2021 in the category “IEEE Standards”. 
The award honors TTTech’s standardization efforts in the IEEE, most notably in the area of Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), which guarantees safe and reliable information transmission within a network and thus enables novel functionalities in many application areas, like in the automotive domain and in industrial automation.


TTTech Industrial acquires pioneering technology and strategic customers from Nebbiolo Technologies and a TTTech Industrial North America subsidiary is founded in Silicon Valley. The deal will result in the world’s most advanced industrial edge computing platform.


TTControl celebrates its 20th anniversary. In 2001, TTControl was founded with a small team and a local customer base in Austria and Northern Italy. Within a couple of years, the company became a leading electronic solutions provider.
