Fraunhofer establishes new research center in Portugal

Fraunhofer has joined forces with Portugal’s national funding agency for science, research and technology (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia FCT) to establish a new research center focusing on the topics of smart agriculture and water management. The Fraunhofer Center is set to commence its work in Portugal at the end of 2018. Both parties have put their name to a cooperation agreement, signed in Porto.

Cognitive sensors in production processes

As a direct result of Industrie 4.0, industrial production is becoming increasingly customized. And industry’s long-term goal is batch size one. In practice, however, digitalization still frequently means individual solutions that are only partially connected or not connected at all. As a consequence, neither subsequent processes nor advance planning can benefit from data recorded. To facilitate the linking up of production processes, the exchange of application-specific data and the optimization of procedures, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Nuremberg is working on developing identification, localization and communication technologies for cognitive sensors and systems. At the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6, and at the Hannover Messe itself from April 23 to 27, 2018, the researchers will be demonstrating various solutions and data-driven applications in an engine assembly process (Hall 2, Booth C22).

Fully exploiting the possibilities of Industrie 4.0

Researchers from three Aachen-based Fraunhofer Institutes are working together in the Fraunhofer High Performance Center for Networked, Adaptive Production to realize the complete connectivity of machines and sensors with the goal of evaluating all recorded production data with intelligent algorithms in real time and flexibly adapting processes accordingly. At the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018, they will demonstrate what diagnostic and forecasting possibilities this yields for the manufacture of demanding products for various sectors.
