NEXT HORIZON is the Digital Acceleration Incubator of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group.

 At NEXT HORIZON, Pioneers are exploring new technologies and methods in three areas and developing trailblazing service innovations based on that research.


The world is undergoing rapid digital transformation. As the industry moves more toward individualized solutions, partnerships with robots are becoming increasingly closer. Lot size 1 is no longer a utopia.

The headline for this is known: "Industry 4.0".


"Automated Driving" is also a topic everyone is talking about. Technology is taking over the wheel, the driver has time for other activities.


On the other hand, “Internet of Things” (IoT) will be responsible for many everyday activities.


The common denominator of all these trends is the new emerging challenges for safety and security: human saftey andthe security of data and information flow.

The concept of safety changes from a static state to a highly dynamic and continuous process. In an increasingly digitalized world, security becomes a competitive advantage.


In the NEXT HORIZON incubator of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group, new disruptive models are being developed for the areas of "Industry 4.0", "Automated Driving" and the "Internet of Things" and tested on the market. User-centric design is the major focus.
