    Find out from 21-23 April how visual computing and digital health complement each other in many ways.

    Health is one of the core topics of Fraunhofer research. At a joint booth, Fraunhofer IGD presents application-oriented solutions together with other institutes. This year, the focus will be on solutions for corporate health management. For example, a headband developed in collaboration with the University of Rostock measures stress factors at the workplace and thus helps to identify problem areas, while another new development is an intelligent chair that, like our other intelligent furniture, is equipped with capacitive sensors in the upholstery.

    Machine@Hand enables application and workplace-oriented training – even at workplaces that do not exist at the training location.

    Machine@Hand helps comprehend and perform industry 4.0 tasks that are becoming more and more complex. Workers are guided through maintenance or assembly tasks with visual instructions accurately displayed over a real camera image. Complex procedures become easy to grasp and immediately comprehensible. When training on a new machine, the system also provides support even remotely on a virtual model. On the Users’ Day, we wish to give all active and interested users the opportunity to meet and discuss the technology.
