Silicon Valley had just hit the DOTCOM bust, but we thought embedded systems would bloom in the heart of Industrial Germany. We were enthusiastic about the possibilities that embedded software has to offer and we still are – now with an added focus on reliable realtime Edge Solutions connecting to the cloud for valuable business outcomes. That is why we founded aicas.

Our Origin

The best is yet to come.

The idea for aicas was born in Karlsruhe, Germany, in 2001, when four graduates of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) joined forces to found the company with the vision of becoming a realtime embedded systems development company. The founders could hardly imagine that twenty years later, their software technology would become an integral part of the IoT evolution and the digital transformation in the automotive industry. From the small beginnings in modest office spaces in the town of Karlsruhe their entrepreneurial energy put aicas on a journey of success across the globe – continuously supported by hard work, deep software engineering know-how in creating edge solutions, innovation, and curiosity, and full confidence that the best is yet to come.
