LiDAR

LiDAR systems become increasingly important in advanced driver assistance systems and industrial robotics. For such applications Fraunhofer IMS develops highly sensitive CSPAD detectors and novel approaches for ambient light suppression on chip level. Together these guarantee best performance and reliable measurements.

Sensor-readout at the highest level

Fraunhofer IMS developed highly-precise sensor-readout-ASICs for robust application. High-precision, robust and secure – regarding sensors, these characteristics seem to contradict. Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS in Duisburg has again performed an important step for the secure implementing of industry 4.0 and developed two sensor-ASIC series for capacitive and inductive sensor readout that do combine these attributes.

Fraunhofer IMS develops AI platform for health, care and social participation

An AI platform should build an ecosystem for health economy. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is participating with the institutes IMS and IIS as consortium partners and wants to help SMEs with the integration of AI solutions. The VDE wins with the project “CareFul KI” in the AI innovation competition that was organized by the BMWi and thereby proving themselves against 130 other applicants.
