Data@Hand – optimizing processes in the most various applications with AI

At Booth A30 in Hall 6 at the 2019 Hanover Trade Fair the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD will be presenting Data@Hand, a basic automated data analysis technology for a variety of application scenarios. Data@Hand detects deviations from the normal operation of a machine, a component or a production installation - and can also be used in medicine. It optimiz-es processes on the basis of artificial intelligence using principles of machine learning.

Sophisticated 3D measurement technology permits gesture-based human-machine interaction in real time

Humans and machines will increasingly support each other in the workplace. For processes to be efficient, the machine must respond to the human worker without any time delay. Thanks to sophisticated high-speed 3D measurement and sensor technology, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF are making this real-time interaction possible. They will be demonstrating how this works in practice at the Hannover Messe trade show from April 1 to 5, 2019 using the example of an interactive wall of spheres that reacts immediately, contact-free and in three dimensions to every movement of a person standing in front of it (Hall 2, Booth C22).

A smart soft orthosis for a stronger back

When workers in Germany call in sick, back pain is often to blame. It frequently affects employees in logistics, manufacturing and services where physically strenuous patterns of movement are part of the daily job routine. In a bid to prevent back problems, Fraunhofer researchers have come up with ErgoJack to offer a smart soft orthosis that supports workers with real-time motion detection. A prototype of this smart vest will be presented live at Hannover Messe from April 1 through 5, 2019, at Booth C24 in Hall 17.

Go-anywhere cleanroom

CAPE® is a transportable, tent-like cleanroom facility developed by researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA. It can be installed both indoors and in unexposed outdoor locations, and takes less than an hour to set up. The inspiration for this innovative new development came from a project with OHB System AG, one of the key players in the European space industry. CAPE® helps to protect delicate parts during the manufacturing process as well as to avoid any cross-contamination. It also provides a controlled environment in which to sterilize equipment and components. Serving as a “cleanroom on demand”, CAPE® is the ideal solution for any industry needing to keep the production process free of contamination and yet not requiring any permanent sterilized cleanroom facility. Fraunhofer IPA will be showcasing the system at this year’s Hannover Messe, April 1 to 5, 2019 (Hall 17, Booth C83).
