In the “Smart and Healthy Living” business unit, scientists within the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics do research into all the ways that technology can support our lives and our work in a modern world. Which new technologies create smart living and working environments for us? Where can microelectronics be used to give us perfect work-life balance? How can electronic applications support people with disabilities as well as the elderly?
The “Smart and Healthy Living” thus combines two previously separate R&D areas within the group – “Ambient Assisted Living, Health and Well-being” and “Smart Living” – and focuses on all electronic assistance as a symbiotic cooperation between humans and technology.
