Will the automobiles of the future drive autonomously? This vision of the future will become reality only when autonomous driving is safe. With this in mind, Fraunhofer IKS works on adaptive automobile software architectures.
The goal of Fraunhofer IKS is to take advantage of machine learning technologies in order to design a future that is safe. AI technologies must be 100 percent dependable, especially when it comes to safety-critical applications.
In the future, digital medicine will accompany us as patients from prevention to aftercare. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a key technology here, because AI can combine and analyze large amounts of data in a very short time. Fraunhofer IKS conducts research on the validation of such digital applications.
The term Industry 4.0 refers to the digitalization of production and manufacturing. In order to safely exploit the corresponding advantages, connected and automated production systems must function first and foremost in a dependable manner.
The electronics inside vehicles and machinery are growing increasingly complex. It takes more advanced safety mechanisms to tame this complexity. This is why safety engineering is a focal point of research at Fraunhofer IKS.
Smart Farming makes it possible to simultaneously render agriculture more sustainable, efficient and resilient. Fraunhofer IKS supports manufacturers of agricultural machinery, technology or software in the development of solutions for smart farming.
Conference on Optimization and Machine Learning in Industry 2023
On 15 March, the ADA Lovelace Center for Analytics, Data and Applications invites to the "Conference on Optimization and Machinelearning in Industry". Fraunhofer IKS is participating in the conference and will present research results on resilience in autonomous systems.
Fraunhofer IKS is getting a new institute building at the Fraunhofer campus in Garching near Munich. The groundbreaking ceremony with Bavaria's Minister President Dr. Markus Söder and Economics Minister Hubert Aiwanger in October marked the official start of construction. On our new building page you will find all information about the construction progress in German.
How is it possible to develop safe software systems based on artificial intelligence? As simple as the question sounds, a comprehensive answer would be complex. Therefore, the white paper "Safe AI - How is it possible?" focuses on the technical design and the engineering principles of safe AI-based systems.
Resilience is the key ingredient for the next generation of cognitive cyber-physical systems. Many visions of the future can only become reality if the systems become aware of themselves, their goals and their context in order to be able to adapt to unknown and changing environments. In this article, part 2 of our series on resilience, we look at the character of complexity to better understand where to start engineering in order to manage this complexity.
The Operational Design Domain (ODD) precisely defines the area in which automated driving functions may be used. As such, they represent a fundamental prerequisite for safe automated driving. Part 1 of a three-part series on the importance of ODD.
