    The treatment of people who have Parkinson's disease can be improved significantly by using digital techniques. The DIGIPD project explores how artificial intelligence can contribute to a better individualized treatment of the disease, for example, by analysis of sensor data or automatically detected changes in speech, facial expressions, or movements.

  • Fraunhofer SCAI has greatly improved its successfully marketed AutoPanelSizer software. The new version now optimizes plans for cutting rectangular parts much faster. New features and the utilization of multiple processor cores ensure even more efficient cutting plans. As a pure optimization kernel, the software can be integrated into existing plant control systems or ERP/MES systems.

  • Open Access and Innovation Portal SAIRA® / 2020

    Share and browse technologies, research and best practices on COVID-19

    Press Release FIT / August 04, 2020

    New technologies and research to fight COVID-19 can only help if knowledge is rapidly shared and deployed. The novel Open Access Hub area on SAIRA®, deve-loped by Fraunhofer, enables fast and easy sharing and publishing on the latest research findings on COVID-19. To secure the authentication, ownership and integrity of information the platform will be integrated with Blockchain technology.

    Electricity from renewable energy sources contributes to combat climate change. One of the challenges is to develop technologies for storing excesses in energy supplies quickly and without loss. Organic redox flow batteries (RFBs) promise a viable route to this end: operated where needed, they rely on matter-bound storage – just in analogy to nature's example.

  • AI enhancement for printed circuit boards

    Press release / May 04, 2020

    Without the printed circuit board (PCB), there would never have been the electronic revolution that has so transformed our lives and jobs. A PCB is the platform upon which minuscule electronic components interact with one another. Today, PCBs are found in an ever-greater number of increasingly complex applications. This in turn has led to more and more stringent require-ments with regard to design and quality assurance. It is vital, for example, to avoid any electrical interference and ensure electromagnetic compatibility. The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT has developed a modular AI platform to optimize the design and testing of PCBs, thereby reducing the requisite outlay by as much as 20 percent.

  • The Telecom Infra Project (TIP) is an industry association for the development of Open Solutions, in which all well-known players of the worldwide telecommunications industry are represented. The aim is to give everyone in the world access to the Internet. Fraunhofer FIT's "Wireless Backhaul" (WiBACK) radio relay technology will be a key component of TIP’s OpenCellular project for bringing the Internet to remote, sparsely populated regions.
