Appliance Technology Applications

Even for such everyday applications as household appliances, Fraunhofer IIS scientists have developed various innovative solutions. The electronic systems designed for these machines were conceived with the aim of making them more energy-efficient and optimizing the consumption of water and other resources.

A typical example is the smart 3D magnetic field sensor, a non-contact device that helps to determine the weight of laundry in the drum and distribute it evenly to avoid excessive vibrations.

In addition to novel operating functions, this technology can also be used to implement pressure sensors of unprecedented reliability and accuracy.
