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.
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.
Harald Böttner, former head of department at the Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques IPM, was awarded the European Thermoelectric Society’s (ETS) award of honor for his long-standing research activities in the field of thermoelectrics and his commitment to the ETS. The award ceremony took place on the occasion of the ETS annual conference in Padua in September.
Impurities adhering to the surface of components can cause problems in later stages of the production process – or even make the entire component useless. A new fluorescence scanner developed by the Fraunhofer IPM allows specialists to inspect metallic parts for residues of grease, machining chips and cleaning agents – for every single item in production cycle. The inline-measuring system will be presented at the Parts2Clean trade show from October 24 to 26, 2017.
Fraunhofer IPM presents the »Deep Learning Framework« for the automatic interpretation of 3D data
Using cameras or laser scanners to detect large structures generates vast amounts of data. For the first time, a newly developed deep learning framework is able to analyze this 3D and image data automatically. Fraunhofer IPM will be presenting the method at the INTERGEO 2017 trade fair from September 26–28 in Berlin.
