Quality assurance

Nuremberg: Together with the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Fraunhofer IIS developed a tracking system that monitors selected sensor data in an energy-efficient manner. With existing solutions, it is only possible to reliably locate rescue workers in hazardous environments or to track containers in the industry with little effort. The results of the project will be presented at the Hanover Fair 2017.
