Services within the research area

Research and development at Fraunhofer IIS are directed toward creating and optimizing new products for industry and research. Together with our collaboration partners, we are active in the following areas.


Integrated Sensor Systems

Tomorrow’s world requires intelligent sensor systems with signal processing, self-monitoring, and digital system interfaces. We develop complete solutions for smart sensor systems with integrated signal processing in CMOS technology.


Sensor Systems in Automation

Sensors are used in industrial automation in conjunction with condition monitoring systems to obtain information allowing the early detection of wear in components such as motors and bearings. Fraunhofer IIS offers a predictive approach to condition monitoring. Another useful technology for automation solutions is wireless communication, which allows sensors to be integrated in a data network or additional sensors and actuators to be connected to an existing system.


Energy Harvesting

The Fraunhofer IIS is your expert in the field of autarc energy supply, e.g. wireless sensor systems. The offer contains single components like voltage transformers and complete Energy Harvesting systems.


Object and Status Classification

With the algorithms regarding object- and status classifiaction we offer the possibility to improve existing localization solutions, to classify different states of movement and to enable a quality monitoring.


Networking of Sensors

In addition to consultancy we offer customized radio systems according to customer requirements.
