The work processes in our society have become very complex and demanding; time is scarce and staff is expensive and hard to get. This is expected to increase further in the future. Electronic assistance systems can support by contributing to a user-friendly, time- and resource-efficient handling of complex tasks. Electronic assistance based on electronic systems with embedded software and artificial intelligence in vehicles is already a matter of course today. In other areas, however, this is not yet so widespread. In the field of nursing care, for example, demographic change in society and the shortage of nursing staff will inevitably lead to the use of automated, technical solutions in order to still be able to cope with the social task of nursing care. Similarly, in the area of industrial production (“Industry 4.0” or “Smart Factory”), electronic systems with embedded software and artificial intelligence can continuously monitor machines and plants by means of sensors, thus ensuring high productivity and quality. In addition to the actual technical functionality an important aspect of such complex system solutions is their operability by the user and the associated acceptance for their use. The use of smart sensor systems at the human interface is indispensable to meet these requirements from the various fields. Smart systems can only exist through the use of embedded software and artificial intelligence.
