ASE maintains close relationships with the world’s leading research universities and supports the regular mutual exchange of knowledge with academics around the world. The university is not the only important recruiting channel for new talent at ASE, and it’s for this reason that we expand our circles through a presence at career job fairs. Scientists are also our valued customers, and ASE’s technologies and data sets have been used in a wide range of published scientific studies. In addition, ASE also conducts its own research and presents the results in scientific journals, at symposia or industry conferences.

ASE supplies measurement systems for the Federal Ministry’s CroMa project

The CroMa project is an initiative funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Through improved building regulations, appropriate crowd management, and cross-organisational implementation guidelines, it aims to achieve greater levels of safety, robustness, and performance in transport hubs for the 36 million passengers who use German public transport every day.

The project is led by prominent research figure Prof. Dr. Armin Seyfried and is based on the ASE technology used at Frankfurt Central Station.
