The origins of ThingOS lie at the University of Stuttgart. Here, a four-year European project with the title meSch was initiated in January 2013 and established the foundations of the ThingOS platform. During the project, it quickly became clear that ThingOS would be able to holistically solve the interoperability problem for a broad range of applications.
At the University of Stuttgart, TTI – meSchup was launched in March 2017 with a focus on initial projects in smart home and smart object applications. Soon, smart industry projects joined. The project’s fast growth soon lead to the founding of ThingOS GmbH in February 2018.
