Digital assistance aims at supporting the human being in all possible situations of everyday life via intelligent and adaptive technologies. Tasks in the professional as well as the private field can thus be fulfilled more easily and purposefully. Fraunhofer IGD applies technologies of visual information assistance in networked and mobile applications. Within this framework research activities focus on assistance in the field of production as well as the health sector in order to increase the ability to make reliable decisions during work processes.
The technologies developed in Fraunhofer IGD improve integration and communication of human being and machine, provide problem-specific and situation-related information, and allow quick and competent decisions.
