Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus Haid is an IoT and Blockchain expert who supports numerous companies in this field. With his approach #digital-steps-are-minimal-steps, companies quickly find in a so-called Digital Initial Stage the option to make their way into the Internet of Things, right through to the digital transformation, in manageable and practicable steps. His competencies in the field of sensors foster his expert status, as sensors are in principle drivers and accelerators of every digitalization process.
With his latest project insight, Prof. Haid seeks to build trust in cloud applications with a Blockchain solution.
Prof. Haid has been Professor of Sensor Technology and Measurement Data Processing at the Department of Electrical and Information Technology at the Technical College of Darmstadt since 2008. Since 2009, he has led the Competence Center for Applied Sensor Systems (CCASS www.ccass.h-da.de), which he founded. He is considered a sensor expert in the field of motion tracking, condition monitoring and localization. The CCASS acts as a research and cooperation partner for the industry in this field. Since November 2017, Prof. Haid belongs together with 18 Hessian professors to the doctoral center of Hessian universities.
In addition, Prof. Haid has built up a globally recognized expertise in the field of metrology and, in particular, measurement data processing and signal analysis in the LabVIEW area. As the only CLA-certified professor in Germany and as a globally recognized LabVIEW Champion for Adoption, Proficiency and Safety, Prof. Haid carries out numerous training courses, seminars and above all architectural workshops in companies.
In January 2015, Prof. Haid took over the leadership of the first worldwide LabVIEW Competence Center for High-Assurance Systems Development (LabVIEW CAS). The task of the CAS is to establish the LabVIEW graphical programming environment in the area of safety-critical applications and to develop an implementation standard for the areas of automation, medicine, automotive and avionics.
Prior to joining Technical Collage of Darmstadt, Prof. Haid worked as an employee at Robert BOSCH GmbH in the Automotive Electronics business unit in the occupant protection product area as a project manager for body sound sensing. In addition, he was responsible as the so-called technical and commercial counterpart of the entire business area for the then new automotive architecture standard AUTOSAR and the then new bus system FlexRay.
Before joining Robert BOSCH GmbH, he worked as an employee at Fraunhofer TEG (Fraunhofer Technology Development Group) in the field of inertial object tracking and was responsible for new innovative developments in the field of inertial object tracking in the indoor area as a project manager. His tasks included, in addition to the acquisition of industrial projects and funding, the project management and the external representation of the topic "Inertial Object Tracking". During his time at the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, he was also responsible for the development of medical equipment as a project manager.
Previously, Prof. Haid was employed by the automation manufacturer Moeller GmbH in Bonn as a software developer.
As a MiNT ambassador, Prof. Haid is on the way in kindergartens, elementary and secondary schools, and there for physics projects and panel discussion.
