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 signs a long-term development agreement with European space market leader Airbus Safran Launchers to utilize TTEthernet as avionics backbone in the Ariane 6 family of launchers.


Renesas Electronics Corporation and TTTech announce their agreement on collaborating on the development of a new automotive platform solution for driver assistance systems (ADAS). The automotive platform solution will integrate Renesas' automotive control microcontroller (MCU), the RH850/P1x, and high-performance R-Car system-on-chips (SoCs) with TTTech's MotionWise, a software platform to enable highly complex automotive solutions including highly automated driving.


TTTech complets the acquisition of Finnish chip IP specialist Flexibilis. The deal further strengthens TTTech’s comprehensive offering in reliable real-time communication solutions for its industrial customers.


This year, NI announces a collaboration with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and industry leaders Bosch Rexroth, Cisco, Intel, KUKA, Schneider Electric and TTTech to develop the world's first Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) testbed. The testbed has turned out to be a huge success, proving TSN's value. The same year, leading automation and information technology suppliers announce that they will support OPC UA TSN for unified Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) communication to the controller Level.
