    Fraunhofer Singapore founded

    Today, we are celebrating the creation of Fraunhofer Singapore, twenty years after Fraunhofer IGD initially stepped foot in Singapore for the first time.

    In 2010, the Fraunhofer Project Center for Interactive Digital Media IDM was established as a result of a project group set up in 1997 based on a cooperative partnership with Nanyang Technological University. This has now led to the formation of the legally independent company Fraunhofer Singapore.

    AR hype 2017: What happens next?

    As of today the Fraunhofer IGD is demonstrating at the Augmented World Expo in Santa Clara that AR does not have to stay a hype. For many years the Fraunhofer researchers have been developing AR solutions for industrial applications. With VisionLib they are presenting an AR tracking library, specifically designed for companies, from May 31 to June 2.

  • Production will become increasingly more flexible in the future. For employees, this means that work processes will be constantly changing. An intelligent workshop trolley now optimally guides workers through their tasks with the aid of AR glasses. Researchers will be showcasing this newly developed solution at the Hannover Messe (Booth D11, Hall 7) between April 24 and 28, 2017.

  • Revolutions are accompanied by changes due to their very nature – the same applies to the fourth industrial revolution, known as Industrie 4.0. But how can companies handle the big data that this revolution is producing? The Plant@Hand3D system offers a solution: it displays all key information at a glance, making decision processes easier. Fraunhofer IGD researchers will be presenting their newly developed Plant@Hand3D system at Hannover Messe 2017.

  • The individualized mass production up to the individual item is a promise of the future delivered by Industrie 4.0. It can only be implemented if there are suitable test methods for the feasibility of individual designs. At the Hannover Messe 2017 from April 24 to 28, 2017, Fraunhofer researchers will present a simulation solution that automatically determines whether the customer‘s desired design can be realized (hall 7, booth D11).

  • Physicians need to make decisions to provide their patients with the best possible treatment. Researchers of Fraunhofer IGD are working on a procedure connecting the physician’s empirical data, image data, and general patient data for decision making. Up-to-date results can be seen at this year’s RSNA in Chicago.
