Cognitive Sensor Systems – Efficient Processes

Fraunhofer IZFP is an internationally networked research and development institute in the field of applied research. Its activities are focused on the development of "cognitive sensor systems" for the nondestructive monitoring of industrial processes and value chains. The Institute's technical understanding of inspection and sensor physics is supplemented by technologies and concepts from AI research, which are used to develop sensor systems for the NDT of tomorrow. In addition to pure production processes, the activities cover equally processes from materials and product development, maintenance, repair, and recycling of materials.

The current research focus relates to the development of sensors that are suited to capture production-related microstructural patterns and to merge them in the sense of an individual fingerprint, a so-called "product DNA". In the future, these "digital product files" will open up completely new approaches for the optimization of the individual sectors of a material and product lifecycle.
