About us

We develop vision for machines and robots

As an owner-managed company, we have been developing and manufacturing optical measuring and inspection technologies for industrial production since 2011. Our automated quality assurance systems are used every day in a wide range of industries. Our inspection solutions not only measure and inspect products, but also reduce costs and ensure product traceability. The return on investment (ROI) is significantly high. In addition, our solutions are instrumental in the early detection of production rejects, thereby reducing resource consumption.

Guarantors of Success

Innovative ideas, precise planning and implementation as well as many years of experience are our guarantors for success.

With our solutions, we make industrial production even more precise, economical and sustainable. We are paving the way for the future of quality assurance. We develop high-performance optical image processing systems for complex measuring and inspection tasks in production.

Biography of Rainer Obergrussberger

Biography of Rainer Obergrussberger

senswork co-founder and managing director Rainer Obergrussberger is primarily responsible for the company's business development and sales management. With over 25 years of experience in machine vision, he continues to develop industrial projects, drive new technological approaches and deliver concepts that inspire customers. This customer-oriented approach is a key factor in senswork's success.

As an expert in the field of computer science, image processing and quality assurance, the computer science graduate has played a major role in this success. His focus on camera technology and image processing at the Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences as well as his practical experience as a student assistant in the laboratory for image processing systems paved the way for his professional career.

His many years of professional experience, including as a project manager and technical director in an integration house for industrial image processing, have enabled him to gain in-depth knowledge of a wide range of camera technologies. During his extra-occupational master studies in Queensland/Australia he gained valuable experience abroad.

This expertise formed the basis for the foundation of senswork GmbH with Roman Rieger in 2011 in a start-up center in Rosenheim. Just two years later, the company was relocated to Burghausen due to its growing success. Today, about 30 employees work in Burghausen, Munich, Bad Honnef and Johnson City/Tennessee.

One of Rainer's greatest successes is the development of the ZScan® automatic 3D measurement system and other innovative measurement and inspection systems that are used daily by Tier 1 and Tier 2 automotive industry customers. His goal is always to solve complex tasks to ensure a zero defect rate.
Roman Rieger CEO

Given the rapid pace of technological development in the automation industry, it is essential to stay at the forefront of innovation."

Biography of Roman Rieger

Biography of Roman Rieger

Together with Rainer Obergrussberger, Roman Rieger founded senswork GmbH in January 2011. The main tasks of the Managing Director of senswork GmbH and senswork Inc. in the USA include the planning and implementation of design and production. In addition, he is responsible for business development and the establishment of senswork Inc. in Tennessee, USA.

System integration, production engineering and automation are among his strengths. As an engineer, precision mechanic and production technician, Roman always strives to find the best solutions for complex inspection tasks and implement them to simplify the production process. For senswork's customers, this means high reliability, high ROI, and cost and time savings. This has been proven in many projects with Tier 1 and Tier 2 automotive suppliers. The electronics industry is also part of his area of expertise. Thus, he developed numerous optical measurement and inspection systems for electric motors, wafers, batteries and circuit boards.

His goal is that of his customers: To find solutions that reduce costs and ensure product quality by detecting and minimizing rejects early in the manufacturing process. His enthusiasm, expertise and commitment to machine vision has contributed significantly to senswork's success. With approximately 30 employees and four locations worldwide, Roman is driving the international proliferation of senswork products and services, making it possible to guarantee product quality in manufacturing globally.

He works daily to continue to develop innovative turnkey solutions and new products that are missing from the market. In doing so, he is paving the way for the future of quality assurance.
Markus Schatzl Director Innovation Lab

Industrial image processing as a cross-sectional discipline between computer science, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering draws its potential from the knowledge of many. Our strength lies in the contribution of each individual."

Biography of Markus Schatzl

Biography of Markus Schatzl

Markus Schatzl founded senswork's Innovation Lab as a research and development location in Munich in 2019. Apart from managing this business unit, he is in charge of the development of senswork's AI products.

Markus is a computer scientist and has been focusing on computer vision already during university. He then worked for over 12 years as a development engineer at one of the largest European technology providers for machine vision. He is an expert in camera technologies and the design and implementation of systems for analyzing optical data, particularly in the field of 3D imaging.

He is particularly enthusiastic about solving problems at the limits of feasibility. His multidisciplinary and sometimes unconventional approach, his many years of experience in optical technologies and software development as well as his wide-ranging expertise in related technical disciplines have been proven useful on the way.

A central concern for him within the Innovation Lab and beyond is to cultivate the joy of creative anticipation and forward thinking as a natural part of engineering culture, as well as the ethical responsibility associated with technology development.
