Development of the digital pacifier

The University of Applied Sciences of Eastern Switzerland (OST) is the university of applied sciences for the six cantons of Eastern Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein. Currently, around 1’000 current research projects are analyzed, planned and implemented with the support of professors and students with the OST.

The more than 170-year tradition of education and research has also convinced the
Still makers. The OST organization is strong in implementation, solution-oriented and, above all, very practical. The digital pacifier is being developed in close cooperation between the Institute for Product Design, Development and Engineering (IPEK) and the Institute for Microelectronics and Embedded Systems (IMES). Both areas are located at OST in Rapperswil. While IPEK is mainly strong in planning and development, IMES mainly offers design and prototyping services.
