Resarch programs at Fraunhofer IKS

Cognitive systems are the foundation of future technologies such as autonomous driving and Industry 4.0. Before visions such as road-worthy  self-driving vehicles can be become a reality, and to ensure the creation of market-ready products, the quality of such systems, based on  artificial intelligence (AI) and adaptive technologies for instance, must be verified and guaranteed.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS bundles its expertise into three research programs in order to address these complex challenges. Within these programs, the institute develops innovative solutions that offer significant value-add to society through extensive testing and analyses.

By carrying out extensive and systematic testing and analyses, the institute develops innovative solutions within these programs that offer significant value-add to society.
