Reflex over Reaction

Over the last two years, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS and the semiconductor manufacturer GLOBALFOUNDRIES have worked together in the project »MARS« to advance the development of highly reliable 22 nm FDSOI components. These components should pave the way for »tactile intelligent systems« made in Dresden. Areas such as autonomous driving and applications in intelligent production will benefit enormously from such wirelessly networked systems capable of communicating with each other in real time.

    Erlangen, Germany: Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in Germany, with an approximated annual mortality rate of 26,000 people. About 90 percent of these cancer cases feature adenomas in form of polyps – making their detection a key issue in order to preventing colon cancer. Within the scope of the “KoloPol” project, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has developed software that automatically detects and visualizes hypothesis of polyps, making screening for colorectal cancer potentially more efficient and effective. Fraunhofer IIS will present the real-time polyp detection solution at the Medica exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany from November 14th to 17th, 2016.
