GoalRef™ to Become First Goal-Line Technology to Be Used in European Soccer Tournament
May 17, 2013
Fraunhofer IIS’s GoalRef™ goal-line technology will be used at the Copa
Amsterdam soccer tournament from May 18 to May 20, 2013, to guarantee
correct goal-line decisions. GoalRef™ uses magnetic fields to reliably determine
whether the ball has completely crossed the goal line. To this end, the system
will be installed at Amsterdam’s Olympic Stadium and used for all 18 games.
The Copa Amsterdam will be contested by the world’s best under-19 club
teams, including Ajax Amsterdam and Borussia Moenchengladbach.
Racing car with electric drive
Apr 29, 2013
Drive technology has an electric future – of this Fraunhofer research scientists are in no doubt. At the Sensor + Test measurement fair in Nuremberg from May 14 -16, they will use an electric racing car to present novel solutions for battery management and electronic sensor systems together with an industry partner. The scientists are right on trend, as even FIA, the governing body for world motor sport, federation of the world’s leading motoring organizations and organizer of Formula 1, is planning a racing series for electric vehicles.
Blackmagic Design integrates Fraunhofer IIS easyDCP software in postproduction suite DaVinci Resolve 10
Apr 08, 2013

Fraunhofer IIS to Showcase Embedded Wireless Technologies at Hannover Messe 2013
Mar 21, 2013
Industry's need for process integration and hence for information about the current status of processes has led to an increase in the use of embedded wireless technologies. The exchange of data and information between plant and machinery, work pieces and components is becoming ever more important. This presents the manufacturing and supply chain sectors with new challenges,
which will be one of the themes of Hannover Messe 2013. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS will be showcasing relevant technologies in the Wireless Pavilion (Hall 8). Its exhibits will demonstrate solutions for object identification as well as for recording and transmitting sensor data.

embedded world 2013: special award for maintenancefree, self-powered wireless multi-hop sensor network
Feb 27, 2013
On February 26, 2013, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS was honored with the embedded world 2013 special award. The combination of two application-oriented technologies allowed the development of a unique, stateof-the-art innovation: a maintenance-free, self-powered wireless multi-hop sensor network.
One of the underlying technologies is the s-net® wireless protocol stack, which requires only a tiny amount of energy to initialize and operate a wireless multihop sensor network. The innovation however also relies on highly-efficient Fraunhofer IIS power management circuits for harvesting energy, thus
eliminating batteries and thereby the need to charge and replace them. Together, these two developments enable the implementation of large-scale, distributed and maintenance-free sensor networks, paving the way for costeffective
Internet of Things applications.
More reliable and accurate localization
Feb 25, 2013
A new algorithm from Fraunhofer IIS detects motion reliably and accurately. It can significantly improve existing localization solutions, is easy to implement, and is independent of external infrastructure. Suppliers of localization technology can test the algorithm in a live demonstration at embedded world in Nuremberg from February 26 to 28, 2013. The demonstration will take place in Hall 4 at Booth 4-128.
