AR for Industrie 4.0

A New Way of Seeing: Blending Virtual and Physical Worlds.

Mass produced?

But customized. From design to 3D printing. Simulation in the age of Industry 4.0.

Layer-by-layer: 3D printing enables flexible mass customization

Cuttlefish, a voxel-based printer driver developed by Fraunhofer IGD, enables streaming and is designed for multi-material 3D printers.

Data Driven Design

Researchers at Fraunhofer Austria are developing specialized and made-to-measure data-driven visualization systems that allow designs to be examined and tested in advance.

Visual Assistance Technologies

A new face, a new name: in July 2017, Dr. Mario Aehnelt was appointed Head of the Visual Assistance Technologies Center.

Visibility into the deep

Multiple research teams at Fraunhofer IGD are working on methods to significantly improve the quality of underwater images and make them easier to analyze. The underlying goal is to “remove the water.”

Visual Computing for personalized health

Visual computing has benefits for doctors and patients beyond conventional medical treatment. These technologies can be harnessed to better organize care facilities—enhancing efficiency and delivering a more personalized service.

AR navigation for lymph node biopsies

3D-ARILE helps surgeons to navigate accurately during lymph node biopsies.

Mobile devices controlled by facial expressions

Today’s mobile devices are generally operated via a touch screen. But there are many situations where this form of control is simply not feasible.

Citizen empowerment

Fraunhofer IGD’s smarticipate project aims to develop a platform that simplifies public participation in urban planning.

Fraunhofer Singapore

Singapore aims to become a “Smart Nation”, and Fraunhofer can contribute in a number of ways—with pioneering technologies in manufacturing, urban development, transportation and workplace design.

Award for Wiebke Mildes

Remote sensing has been Wiebke Mildes’s constant companion. It was the topic of her master’s thesis at Jade University of Applied Sciences in Oldenburg. We asked her three questions.

GeoRocket: Enhanced data storage for better forecasting

Rich, precise geoinformation can be put to good use in a variety of scenarios—for example, to assess the risk of natural disasters in vulnerable regions such as Liguria in northern Italy.
