At the international trade fair for geodesy, geoinformation and land management we present laser scanning technologies for the measurement of infrastructure and concepts for the automated interpretation of 3D data.
We develop and manufacture measurement systems for gas and liquid analysis which feature high precision and reliability even under extreme conditions. The scope ranges from laser spectrometers for exhaust gas analysis to energy-efficient gas sensor for food quality monitoring.
Software from Fraunhofer IPM supports optimized route planning for fiber-optic networks
Deutsche Telekom AG will optimize the planning for new fiber-optic cables in the future using infrastructure data it collects itself. To achieve this, the company is investing in optical measurement technology with automated data analysis. Fraunhofer IPM has developed software for the telecommunications group that automatically recognizes physical objects in measurement data and uses these results to relay reliable planning data for civil engineering works, one of the major risks implicit in the expansion of fiber-optic networks.
QUILT Autumn School »Quantum-Enhanced Imaging and Spectroscopy«
Within the Fraunhofer Lighthouse Project QUILT (Quantum Methods for Advanced Imaging Solutions), the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF from Jena, Germany, together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques IPM from Freiburg, Germany, will organize an Autumn School on Quantum-Enhanced Imaging & Spectroscopy at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, from September 9-12, 2018.
In a comprehensive study, the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute VTI conducted a comparison of road surface measurement systems. The study documented the performance of the Pavement Profile Scanner PPS from Fraunhofer IPM.
