3D sound made in Thuringia takes center stage

For the last ten years, the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT has cooperated with the world’s largest lake stage, in Bregenz. The vision of the Fraunhofer researchers is to bring the acoustics of a closed...[more]


LED color sensor with on-chip filters

LEDs are considered the lighting source of the future because they have a long service life, are energy efficient, and have a lot of possible uses. But they, too, have their weaknesses: over time, the luminosity of LEDs is partly...[more]


Happy birthday, microelectronics

Microelectronics and Fraunhofer – from today’s perspective, that’s a symbiosis that goes without saying. There are hardly any Fraunhofer institutes with no microelectronics in their portfolio. Currently with eleven member...[more]


Efficient inductive charging for electric cars

Toothbrushes and cell phones can now be charged contactlessly using electromagnetic induction. Electric cars could follow soon. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a promising new approach to make this a reality: instead of...[more]


Plethora – the universal prototyping platform for distributed wireless systems

From localization to process automation – a lot of applications require distributed data entry and processing. Often, however, it is not possible to evaluate different approaches to solutions with different sensors and radio...[more]


Smooth communication, even without wires

Radio systems are a flexible and cost-effective solution for networking industrial systems. Wireless communication networks, however, are susceptible to faults if they are not installed optimally. A new measuring and diagnosis...[more]


Smart energy savings

Smart energy use – we hear more and more about it, but we often don’t know how we can save energy and use it as efficiently as possible. We don’t have to follow our grandmothers’ advice to go back to candlelight. One modern...[more]
