Practical and “live” experience

The highlight: All functions are already available in practice. Thus, the eHaus offers a look at current technology and what is possible in the immediate future. All the systems are available as a “live” experience all areas can be entered. The eHaus is designed to be as transparent as possible with glass shelves offering visitors a direct insight into the functioning of the systems and products used.
