Campus of the Senses

Senses go digital - join us from the beginning!

The trend toward digitalization, until now mostly associated with industry, is increasingly spreading to all other areas of life, including people’s everyday activities. The Campus of the Senses in Erlangen intends to digitally recreate human senses such as sight and hearing, and especially the chemical senses of taste and smell. For instance, machines could be designed to help people who have lost their sense of taste and smell due to an infection determine whether food has gone bad.

 

On September 15th the kick off of the Campus of the Senses took place at Fraunhofer IIS. The campus will combine interdisciplinary basic research and application-oriented research on the subject of digital sensory transition and will help you staying competitive by recording and processing individual sensory impressions digitally.
