  • 1996

    Lifting and moving of the Kaisersaal at the Grand Hotel Esplanade in Berlin’s Potsdamer Platz to the Sony Center using RM metrology.

    Company decides to focus on the development of wired and wireless communication devices using bidirectional data exchange – enabling machines, vehicles, and end-users to “talk” to each other.

  • 1997

    First interface with LCD display to connect PCs to mobile or stationary CAN-Bus-Systems: RM CANview® Display.
