Im Folgenden zeigen wir Ihnen einige Beispiellösungen aus unserer erfolgreichen Projektarbeit. Sind die genutzten Technologien auch für Ihr Unternehmen interessant? — Zögern Sie bitte nicht uns zu kontaktieren. Wir erläutern Ihnen die Möglichkeiten gerne.

  • The potential of digital tools in product development is far from exhausted. With the resulting possibilities, it becomes easier to implement increasing demands on a new product, from mechanical properties such as durability via environmental sustainability all the way to recycling capability.

  • Increasing automation in manufacturing within the context of the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) also results in an even higher level of digitization in production planning in addition to the networking of production components.

  • For manufacturing processes to be effective, the use of resources, as well as any deviations from production planning, must be monitored continuously. There are already various systems for this purpose, such as solutions for production data acquisition (BDE) or production control (MES).

  • The mounting complexity of production processes triggers the need for advanced assistance for humans in manufacturing and maintenance processes. The spectrum of solutions ranges from cognitive information assistance (i.e. situation- and needs-oriented proactive or on-demand provision of required information) to physical assistance by cooperative robots.

  • The entire flow of infrastructure projects is marked by complex interactions. The requests and concerns of the affected parties and of the decision-makers require systematic, continuous communication by the project owner. The technical support based on integrated data makes it easier to make transparent, sound decisions in favor of the best scenario. Moreover, this approach also makes more effective use of the inhabitants' constructive co-design potential.

  • Citizens are increasingly involved in urban planning processes. To be able to make a democratic decision, citizens must be aware of the current planning situation and alternatives must be available. With the help of the easy-to-understand visual information provided by 3D city models, citizens can express their ideas before the planning reaches a stage at which it can no longer be optimized. Collaborative solutions enable the visualization of various application fields. In this way, citizens are effectively involved in the conversion and transformation of their city or community.

  • In daily hospital routines, a great number of different data is collected on each individual patient. It is hardly possible to record and analyze these data without software that works as automatically as possible. Visual computing solutions by Fraunhofer IGD allow for the automated combination (registration) of medical image data and their annotation/segmentation, as well as the extraction of image-based biomarkers (radiomics).

  • One of the applications of visual computing is to assist clinicians in the best possible way when it comes to selecting, planning, and implementing any therapy. Based on patient-specific image data and statistical models, the individual anatomy of the patient is automatically captured and conveyed to a geometric model. With this model, highly precise access paths may then be planned, for instance.

  • The objective of the 3D Printing department of Fraunhofer IGD is to enable any 3D objects to be printed along with their visual properties. However, even state-of-the-art 3D printers are not capable of reproducing all desired visual properties, mainly due to the different print technologies or the materials used.

  • Images taken by underwater cameras are frequently of a comparatively low quality: falsified colors, distortions, and significantly lower contrasts characterize these images. The reasons are special properties of water, resulting particularly in the dampening, diffusion, and refraction of light.

    The researchers of Fraunhofer IGD are intensively pursuing this demanding subdomain of image processing. They have developed a comprehensive solution kit, providing highly efficient processing in customer projects. Some of the procedures are real-time-capable and can assist the operator in controlling remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), for instance. These algorithms were also successfully ported to an embedded system. Image enhancement can thus be integrated directly in underwater cameras.
