Board of Directors

Dr. Reik Winkel | Executive Officer
Reik founded indurad in 2008, after 5 years of applied R&D work in open cast lignite and underground coal mining, e.g. at Peabody Energy Australia and Weatherford Norway. Reik questioned why operators in the mining industry are left controlling machines worth millions of dollars unaided, whereas the driver of a mid-class car has plenty of assistance. With the compiled knowledge of the maritime industry and automotive radar technology he and his team developed a 360° radar solution for the mining industry.
