Since last year, we’ve adapted to current circumstances by introducing a wide range of digital concepts and virtual events.
Here at the Positioning and Networks business unit, the highlights of 2021 included the awarding of the Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize in recognition of the mioty® miniaturized IoT sensor network. This year’s prize marks the ninth time that Fraunhofer IIS has been honored for outstanding scientific achievements in the course of solving practical problems. In the second quarter of the year, we participated in the Digital Edition of the Hannover Trade Fair, where we presented innovations from the area of 5G positioning and our 5G Bavaria Testbed on a daily basis. We also presented cognitive IoT solutions such as the “Smart Screw Connection,” “SmartTool.connect” for the optimization of machining processes, and the ultra-low-latency UWIN technology in collaboration with the IoT-COMMs Research Center. Moreover, at the virtual Fraunhofer Solution Days, we provided insights not only into quantum and trusted computing but also into solutions and challenges for the engineering of reliable AI systems.
We hope you enjoy reading this newsletter and that it provides you with lots of new ideas!
