Fraunhofer FEP and partners jointly develop solution for the integration of radar sensors into the front headlights of a vehicle

As a result of modern advanced driver assistance systems, the use of radar technology has become indispensable for the automotive sector. A wide range of systems for adaptive speed control, lane-change support, collision avoidance, and pedestrian and cyclist detection has paved the way for autonomous driving. With the installation of a large and growing number of sensors together with the limited availability of suitably exposed space for them on the vehicle body, there is almost no space left for the installation of sensors.

Fraunhofer FEP: H2020 grant for perovskite-based lighting, wearables and fabric devices

The EC is now boosting the impressive research activities in the field of perovskites by the PeroCUBE project, which is funded under Horizon 2020. On 1 April 2020, 14 European partners from industry and science in ten countries launched the joint project to develop new applications in the fields of lighting, photovoltaics and telecommunications. Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP in Dresden, Germany, are involved in the project and will contribute their expertise over the next 3,5 years.

Fraunhofer FEP: Use of low-energy electrons for innovative biotechnology processes

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP (Dresden, Germany) has been utilising electron-beam technology for decades in the development of cleaning, sterilisation, and surface-modification processes and systems. Fraunhofer researchers from the Medical and Biotechnological Applications division (MBA) now intend to develop a methodology that combines biotechnology processes with low-energy electron-beam technology. Moreover, this hybrid methodology will be combined with existing FEP expertise in the area of sensor technology. The anticipated research programme will be presented at the MedtecLIVE trade show in Nuremberg, Hall 10, Booth No. 10.0.513, taking place from 31 March – 2 April 2020.
