  • 5G campus networks are being used more in industry because they offer greater flexibility in production and logistics. To guarantee reliable quality of service and uninterrupted network availability, they require a constant supply of energy. But CO2 reduction targets and high energy prices are presenting operators with some major challenges: How can the network’s energy consumption be reduced without compromising the quality of service required? The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has teamed up with four partners in the 5G-ECONET project to find out.

    The new JPEG XS codec is a revolutionary milestone in bringing professional high-quality video transfer to an all-IP workflow without limiting image resolution or latency. The Fraunhofer JPEG XS SDK offers a free Application Support Package to guide and assist system integrators and developers with the fast and convenient implementation of JPEG XS applications into professional workflows and devices. Professionals can now speedup the process, profiting from subframe-latency, high error resilience and high-speed video transfer from standard to high-resolution displays.

  • How can autonomous driving be made more reliable? Yesterday, the “KI-FLEX” project, which was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and led by Fraunhofer IIS, presented its research results. The initiative was built around a high-performance, energy-efficient, and yet flexible hardware platform with the corresponding software framework, which uses AI technology to process and fuse data from various sensors. This allows vehicles to perceive and localize environmental stimuli in a manner that is fast, efficient, and reliable.
