What drives us#
Why we made cognitive sensor technologies a guiding topic for our institute:
For a successful economy: In the context of digital transformation, cognitive sensor technologies are an important foundation for a successful, powerful economy in Germany. We see it as our duty at Fraunhofer IIS to contribute the skills and expertise of our team to the building of these foundations.
Effective combination of know-how and resources: By pooling our expertise and resources, we possess the skills and know-how to bring cognitive sensor technologies to the next level. Pure electronics is no longer enough for companies looking to become world leaders. Our USP lies in how we combine our hardware and software and enrich them with machine learning techniques in such a way that sensors become cognitive and processes are not only connected, but smart.
Environment for innovations: We are convinced that future innovations will be driven by artificial intelligence. With our research and development in the field of cognitive sensors, we are creating the technological environment to make this possible.
Strategic development: We build on our longstanding experience with electronics and sensor systems, which is needed when working on cognitive sensor technologies. On this basis, we are strategically further developing ourselves and our portfolio and helping business along this path.
Lighthouse in Bavaria: Through our research work and collaborations with universities and institutes of technology, we create unique AI expertise in Bavaria.
