Launch of the Machine Automation Lab
July 11, 2019
The new Machine Automation Lab of the Fraunhofer IVI was launched last Thursday with the signing of a cooperation agreement and the ceremonial unveiling of the logo. This working group is a joint project of the institute and its long-standing research partner Sensor-Technk Wiedemann GmbH (STW) with the objective of bundling infrastructure and know-how to develop new technologies and products for autonomous working machines and commercial vehicles.
With the strategic cooperation of this working group, the Fraunhofer IVI is granted early access to R&D topics that are relevant to the market. Furthermore, the institute is introduced to potential clients for new technology developments. In return, STW will benefit from the scientific expertise and infrastructure of the Fraunhofer IVI for their pre-development of highly automated products.
