Mainz / Birmingham, November 4, 2015

Regional Sales Manager Burkhard Jour and Field Application Engineer Robert Pickles are strengthening SYSGO’s presence in the UK. One of the first initiatives of the new team is participation in the Advanced Engineering UK trade fair in Birmingham on the 4th and 5th of November. The focus will be on presenting a safe and secure automotive platform on the basis of PikeOS Hypervisor.

At Advanced Engineering UK, SYSGO will exhibit a demonstrator for the operation of mission-critical assistance systems and non-critical multimedia applications on a shared automotive platform. The new system is based on SYSGO’s PikeOS Hypervisor and Freescale’s LS1 Multicore hardware.

PikeOS Hypervisor is the software platform for complex applications related to the aerospace industry, the automotive industry, railway engineering, medical technology and industrial automation which have to be certified according to international standards for functional safety and/or security.

“Taking part in Advanced Engineering UK is one of a wide range of activities that we are planning in order to develop our presence in Great Britain. With the appointment of Burkhard Jour and Robert Pickles, we have gained two experienced colleagues who will be responsible for establishing SYSGO in the British market. We hope that we can thus secure an even better position for SYSGO worldwide”, says Norbert Kuhrt, VP Sales at SYSGO.
