High Temperature Electronics
Smart sensors for use in extremely harsh environments

Based on our 0.35µm CMOS technology, Fraunhofer IMS offers development and manufacturing services for integrated circuits for ambient temperatures of up to 300°C. In addition, a technology platform for application-specific intelligent sensor systems for use in extremely harsh environments is currently being developed as part of the Fraunhofer eHarsh lead project. In addition to the high ambient temperatures mentioned, these include pressures of up to 200 bar, high shock and vibration loads as well as influences from dust, particles and aggressive media.

Hardware security for Industry 4.0 components

    Industrial espionage and sabotage attacks on manufacturing companies are not a new topic but the barriers for an attacker have dropped significantly in times of Industry 4.0 and the networking of many production facilities via Internet. Fraunhofer IMS has developed security architectures based on tamper-proof hardware elements which are combined with powerful processor cores.

Electronic Assistance Systems
Smart Sensors by embedded AI

    With a new demonstrator for complex gesture recognition, Fraunhofer IMS shows what is possible with the self-developed embedded AI library AIfES. The demonstrator detects digits written in the air using a 9-axis orientation sensor in combination with an STM32 Cortex M4 microcontroller. All calculations, such as the feature extraction and the neural network based on the AIfES library, are done on the microcontroller. The results of the gesture recognition are transmitted and displayed on a PC via UART . AIfES can easily be integrated into any development project as a library.

Furthermore, Fraunhofer IMS is a consortium partner in the project "CareFul KI", which is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, in the competition phase as part of the innovation contest "Artificial Intelligence as driver of economically relevant ecosystems". "CareFul KI" has been selected together with a 34 other applicants out of a total of over 130 applications. The project aims to create a AI platform for health, care and social inclusion as an ecosystem that will enable the application and use of AI by SMEs in the healthcare sector.
