Fraunhofer Center for Sensor Intelligence ZSI

Motivation

Modern data value chains need intelligent sensors. There has been a massive rise in the complexity of processes and products, which is difficult to handle with conventional solutions. Intelligent, networked sensor approaches are required. Sensor data is processed into relevant information, which is used as the basis for making decisions. In the future, artificial intelligence will be used to do this in real time, using sensor-intelligence-devices (SID). First and foremost, the Center for Sensor-Intelligence is looking into applications for the materials, production, medical engineering, and healthcare sectors.

Mission

With its core competencies and excellence portfolio in sensor-intelligence-devices, Fraunhofer ZSI contributes an essential building block for the digital transformation of industry and society in the Saarland region.

BioSensoLab - Biological laboratory to go

Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT have developed the “BioSensoLab“, a mobile biological laboratory with which they can demonstrate new developments to customers and test them together – on site at their companies. These new technologies rely in particular on intelligent sensors combined with artificial intelligence to perform analyses. The lab will be presented at the joint Fraunhofer booth at the MEDICA 2022 trade fair in Düsseldorf from November 14 to 17.

GLADIATOR - New technologies for cancer monitoring and therapy: A transdisciplinary, paradigm-shifting, approach with bio-nanodevice interfaces

Proof-of-concept for ultrasound-based energy transfer and passive communication: When it comes to the sensor technology, the proof-of-concept for ultrasound-based energy transfer and passive communication was established by the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT. For this purpose, an implantable hybrid sensor was successfully developed. After a proof-of-concept in phantom experiments, present work is focusing on the sensor encapsulation in view of a first in vivo use in small animal models.

New Fraunhofer Center for Sensor Intelligence in Saarland

Saarland’s Minister President Tobias Hans and the President of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Prof. Reimund Neugebauer, signed an agreement today to establish the Fraunhofer Center for Sensor Intelligence ZSI. It will address the entire innovation chain in the pioneering field of intelligent sensor technology, bring together core areas of expertise from the regional research landscape and develop them further. The center will be housed in a new building on the campus of Saarland University as part of a joint project between the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT and the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP.
