    Erlangen/Nuremberg, March 18, 2015: Virtual reality (VR) makes it possible to immerse oneself in new and unfamiliar computer worlds. This technology features strengths that industrial companies, architects and city planners are finding increasingly important for their planning and training processes. To support such applications, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS are now offering high-performance positioning technology that can be integrated into these systems. Precision positioning allows multiple VR users unrestricted mobility in both indoor and outdoor environments.

    Erlangen/Barcelona, February 27, 2015 – Mobile World Congress, Hall 7, Exhibit Booth 7G31: At the Mobile World Congress MWC being held on March 2–5, 2015, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS will premier an intelligent sensor for carrying out anonymous video analyses. Referred to as AVARD (Anonymous Video Analytics for Retail and Digital Signage), the system does not transmit video sequences and instead sends only anonymous metadata. The system has been entered for certification with the European Privacy Seal (Euro- PriSe) for data protection in compliance with the European regulations on privacy and data security through an independent and transparent evaluation and validation process. AVARD is designed for analyzing customer behavior and can be used with digital advertising platforms or in retail stores.
