  • The digitization of cultural-historical objects cannot replace the original. Nevertheless, there are many reasons to use state-of-the-art technology to create three-dimensional models of historically significant objects. At the Fraunhofer Development Center X-ray Technology EZRT at Fraunhofer IIS, bronze reliefs from West Africa were translated into digital data sets using industrial X-ray computed tomography in collaboration with the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. The digitization of the first museum pieces demonstrated the feasibility of the project.

    Grenoble: The electron synchrotron facility in Grenoble has put into operation a globally unique synchrotron-based computed tomography system for the non-destructive testing of large components. Mario Brandenburg (FDP), The Parliamentary State Secretary of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), opened the new beamline during an official ceremony. The system offers a resolution of 25 micrometers, which puts it well ahead of the previous standard resolution for large components. Through its Development Center X-ray Technology division (EZRT), Fraunhofer IIS is playing a leading role in the development of the measuring station. The project is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research with 6.3 million euros.

    At WindEnergy 2022 in Hamburg, institutes of the Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence for Cognitive Internet Technologies CCIT will demonstrate how sustainable energy can even be efficiently and sustainably monitored and maintained. With the Q-Bo® technology, Fraunhofer scientists show how bolted joints and screws, e.g. on the rotors or tower flanges of wind turbines, can be maintained without consuming large amounts of energy for installation, operation and transmission. This means that maintenance cycles for onshore and offshore wind turbines can be made many times more targeted and cost-efficient.

  • Fraunhofer IIS and Astrodesign Inc. announce their partnership at IBC 2022 to offer JPEG XS based solutions either as an FPGA IP core or as a software solution. Both parties are permitted under a cross licensing agreement to sublicense the other's party technology. They will demonstrate the JPEG XS encoding/decoding process and its interoperability by an encoder FPGA solution from Astrodesign together with a software decoder application based on Fraunhofer's SDK (Software Development Kit).

    The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS and the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNITM) have developed ParasiteWeb®, a web platform for training and quality assessment of parasite microscopy. With digital clinical samples, the platform makes it possible to train diagnostic skills online and run virtual external quality assessments (EQAs). In this way, ParasiteWeb® can reach a wider group of users and offer them access to rare parasites and direct expert feedback. With Nobit oHG as a partner, ParasiteWeb® is now live:
