In 2015, the companies Johnson Electric, Liebherr Machines Bulle and Meggitt joined forces with the HEIA-FR to form a center under the acronym ROSAS - Robust and Safe Systems. Globally the role of ROSAS is to ensure the reliability of the interaction between mechanical components, electronic hardware and software in functional systems. This requires concepts and methods to assess robustness and safety, especially under harsh physical conditions. Such functional systems are increasingly integrated into complex global systems such as aircrafts, automobiles, trucks, construction machines and many others. For companies this represents a strategic challenge, which can only be achieved by a multi-disciplinary team of researchers and skilled engineers
ROSAS, through its affiliation with the HEIA-FR, is actively involved in research and innovation in collaboration with numerous academic institutes. In this context, ROSAS ensures high quality expertise and the constant introduction of new technical, managerial, theoretical and social skills within the team.
Located on the blueFACTORY site, ROSAS evolves in a dynamic environment: we benefit frequently from social, cultural, professional and promotional events organised on the site. Our offices are located in the Halle Bleue, a low-energy building with solar panels. We share the building with many other entities working for sustainable development, construction, health at work, medical, etc. This diversity creates a rich and unusual working and after-work environment.
ROSAS intends to :
We have adopted a flat hierarchical structure in order to maximise the achievement of our vision. The implementation of this structure allows employees to interact with the organisation and their responsibilities and tasks according to their professional interests and perspectives. This structure also allows for collaboration and communication between each area of ROSAS and enables the effective use of internal expertise.
At ROSAS, we support companies in the industrialisation of their products and services. To do this, we use applied university research and innovative technologies and collaborate with numerous Swiss and international academic institutes.
