Topics of the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS

Cognitive Systems

Cognitive systems have the ability to adapt to their environment and as a result, solve complex tasks on their own. Fraunhofer IKS conducts research into safe and dependable cognitive systems.

Autonomous Driving

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.

Artificial Intelligence

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.

Industry 4.0

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.

Safety Engineering

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

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.
