TROUT GmbH

Welcome

TROUT GmbH is a business enterprise specializing in information technology and systems engineering. TROUT has amassed a comprehensive fund of know-how and expertise during many years of project work in the areas of aerospace, automotive technology and medical technology.

TROUT GmbH’s business model is based on R&D contracting in the aforementioned areas and on establishing our product range. We specialise in technical/scientific software and systems engineering according to specified methods and standards. Our interdisciplinary solutions require expert system understanding and extensive technical knowledge, as a matter of course.

You will find entries about our current activities on the social network platforms Facebook (German) und Google+ (English).

Since 2012, the Digital Congress (formerly: Future Internet Congress) has been dealing with innovative and challenging topics of digital transformation. This year’s focus was on Artificial Intelligence. Exciting digital projects and success stories from Hesse were introduced in the slot “7 x Digital Hessen”. TROUT was invited to present the developmental progress in the computer-aided classification of cognitive states of a person via the processing of their vital data using machine learning methods: VitaB 

     

Sensor + Test

 

Sensors, measuring and testing systems play a key role in the digitization and networking of vehicles and machines. They transfer real states of the analog world into the digital data of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. Their intelligence and communication skills are growing continuously. TROUT focuses on the evaluation of telemetric sensor systems for vital monitoring. Our booth is in hall 5 and has the number 106. Get a free visitor ticket here: Ticket

To agree on the further approach concerning the development and to conduct a first experiment to test the preliminary version of our 'Intelligent Driver's Seat', the majority of the project participants met in TROUT's premises. This project, initiated by TROUT, (HA project no. 545/17-27) is funded in the framework of Hessen ModellProjekte, financed with funds of LOEWE – Landes-Offensive zur Entwicklung Wissenschaftlich-ökonomischer Exzellenz, Förderlinie 3: KMU-Verbundvorhaben (State Offensive for the Development of Scientific and Economic Excellence).

Academia meets Industry IV – Bridge the gap

By: Nicoline Kersten

The 4 d's "Diagnosis, Drug, Device, Data" are the  motto of the 4th "Academia meets Industry IV - Bridge the gap" event, organised by the IGH, in Frankfurt 17th November 2017. Representatives from industry, IT, science and politics discuss these topics in technical lectures with the objective of promoting networking across sectors. TROUT participates in the accompanying poster exhibition presenting the latest developments regarding the classification of vitality paramters.

      

CNN model for retinal image processing

The medical technology company, Aurteen Inc. from Calgary, Canada, with specialty in development of software for CAD of preterm retinal disorders and assessment of signs of severe diabetic retinopathy has engaged TROUT in a new project. Similar to other activities from TROUT, we again follow a non-invasive approach applying machine learning tools.

 

Building on past projects featuring ANN (artificial neural networks) and decision trees such as NIVAB and VITAB, TROUT will now generate a CNN (convolutional neural network) model for the recognition of blood vessels and the optic nerve head in retinal images. The next step will be the detection of suspicious and possibly pathological signs of the disease.

R & D Project Vitality Data Analysis

By: Nicoline Kersten

TROUT's innovative concepts and experience particularly in the area of machine learning convinced the decision-making committee of the Hessian research funding program LOEWE so that we will receive funds to further develop our VITAsystem in a new R & D project. 

In cooperation the project partners TROUT GmbH, the University of Kassel and an industry partner will develop a prototype of an intelligent driver's seat processing the driver's vitality parameters and evaluating the cognitive states, among others, in the dimensions fatigue, focus and stress level. This project connects the objectives to increase the safety as well as the comfort of the driver. Further developments, also beyond the automobile field, are planned, 

MedTech Summit 2017 – MT Connect

By: Nicoline Kersten

TROUT takes the opportunity and visits the MT-Connect (21.-22.06.2017) congress, which is combined with the MedTech Summit 2017 congress. Both trade fairs feature current trends and developments; especially Mobile Health, Strategic Partnerships, Technologies and Diagnostics. Every area of the produt cycle is represented. Thus, TROUT is looking forward to discussing amongst other things possible applications of VITAB within the Partnering Event.  

     

3rd Hessisches Kooperationsforum

By: Nicoline Kersten

TROUT is participating as exhibitor in the 3rd Nordhessisches Kooperationsforum, which is a great opportunity for company representatives to establish contacts across sectors. This year the organisers i.e. the Regionalmanagement Nordhessen, lay the focus upon the foundation of startup companies. Brigitte Zypries, the current Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, is the keynote speaker.
