Sensor and Data Systems for Safety, Sustainability and Efficiency

Sensor and Data Systems for Safety, Sustainability and Efficiency

Fraunhofer IZFP is an internationally renowned research and development institute for applied, industry-oriented research with headquarters in Saarbrücken. The institute's activities focus on the development of intelligent sensor and data systems for safety, sustainability and efficiency. The results of its R&D work are used in business and industry. The scientific-technological solutions support science and industry and at the same time contribute to shaping our society and our future.

In addition to customized sensor systems, sensor data management, data analysis and data value creation with AI and machine learning techniques, the R&D portfolio also includes extensive consulting activities in the field of standardization, among others. The understanding of technical testing and sensor physics is also complemented by technologies and concepts from AI research. The decades-long understanding of applications and processes for materials and the products made from them continues to form a solid basis and provides the impetus for Fraunhofer IZFP's expanded research mission in the future: By adding aspects of digital signal and information processing, novel applications in domains such as critical infrastructure, the food industry, the sustainable circular economy, and resource protection and conservation become possible.
