Princeton is home to Siemens Corporate Technology North American Headquarters, the R&D hub where employees shape Siemens technology and innovation strategy. The company’s commitment to advance and secure its technology, including investing $1 billion in U.S. R&D annually, has resulted in 15,000 total U.S. patents, equating to five inventions per day. Siemens has nearly 2,100 employees in the state of New Jersey and over 250 in Princeton, where it has longstanding partnerships with Rutgers University and Princeton University.
A Resilient, Carbon-Neutral Campus

Defining the Future of Energy

Living lab provides leading-edge microgrid research environment for customers and partners.

The Siemens Advanced Microgrid Research and Demonstration Lab has been created at our Princeton campus to push the innovation envelope, to show what is possible in the realm of microgrids, and to research and demonstrate how various energy-related generation, storage and building management products behave and work together in a dynamic real-life microgrid environment. In addition, the facilities that support the living lab provide a co-creation space for public and private organizations looking to deploy highly integrated, sustainable and resilient microgrid solutions.

Future-Oriented Research

Shaping the Future for Nearly 50 Years

The smartphone technology enables operators and field technicians to use their cell phone to monitor their machines and see their status in real time.

Ram Kuruganty, Dr. Tao Cui and Dr. Heiko Claussen, the Siemens Corporate Technology and Factory Automation team in Princeton, New Jersey, are behind Expert in Your Pocket, which enables users to listen to their machines and receive critical information on their current condition.

Tackling Food Challenges

Producing Food More Efficiently With Fewer Resources

At Siemens Corporate Technology’s Food Living Lab, researchers explore how Autonomous Agricultural Pods (AgPods) can grow a more nourishing food supply that is safe and secure for future generations.

The goal of the robotic AgPod is to enable farmers to control and monitor the growth of any crop from anywhere, at any time, as well as to autonomously perform all farming operations, from seeding to harvesting to integrating food processing and packaging.
