Our company is committed to the development of advanced optical sensor technologies. It is the home of the AAOI project: Advanced aerosol online identification

About us

Founded in 2016 as a spin-off of Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, swisens develops advanced sensing technologies to monitor environmental threats in our surrounding air. Our focus is currently on detecting and identifying Pollen accurately and in real-time, as such allergies affect 15 to 20% of the Swiss population. We may not be able to make Pollen disappear, but real-time measurements help people avoid the problematic areas or take countermeasures in time.

The Master's Thesis of Philipp Burch concerning this topic was recently awarded the Preis der Hochschule Luzern. This was worth an article in the popular newspaper Obwaldner Zeitung of central Switzerland (in german): Jungingenieur jagt mit Laser Pollen
