KSG GfS

Due to the Atomic Energy Act and their own sense of responsibility, utilities operating nuclear power plants are obligated to ensure effective, appropriate and practical initial and refresher training for all operators. They share the conviction that the nuclear power plant simulators necessary for this should be run centrally and jointly. This thus ensures that the sum of all skill and experience is available for all nuclear power plants and that the simulator courses are run to common-determined, high standards. The significant synergies the centre brings allow very economical operation.
Furthermore, all experience gleaned from training as well as the construction and operation of simulators can be centrally collected and used.For this purpose, the consortium partners founded the Simulator Centre in Essen-Kupferdreh, which is run by the companies KSG and GfS.

Our vision began as a dream that awoke our curiosity. When we researched its premise, how eyes could help technology understand human behaviour, we saw the future of eye tracking. In 1999, we set out to make it a reality.

Smart Eye was founded to bridge the gap between man and machine for a better, sustainable tomorrow. We do it by developing groundbreaking eye tracking technology that understands, assists and predicts human intentions and actions. Through combining deep, technical knowledge with playful creativity. And with the persistence needed to push forward despite realizing that perfect, seamless integration is an unattainable concept.
