  • The most important components in the Internet of Things (IoT) are tiny sensor nodes that collect information from their environment and pass it on – and the applications are becoming ever more numerous and sophisticated. The problem is that the energy consumption of the nodes when projecting a “Trillion Sensor” future is enormous. Fraunhofer’s lighthouse project, ZEPOWEL, sees nine institutes working on futuristic solutions for an energy-efficient IoT.

  • They are only a few millimeters in size and the perfect fit for headphones, hearables, and hearing aids: the world’s first integrated MEMS-based miniature loudspeakers. The loudspeakers are not only compact; they also offer impressive playback fidelity and low energy consumption. They were developed by Fraunhofer IDMT in Ilmenau and Fraunhofer ISIT in Itzehoe.
