After two years of development, the European Commission-funded project INNO4COV-19 (FKZ 101016203), which supported the commercialisation of new products to combat COVID-19 in Europe, has come to an end. The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP (Dresden, Germany) developed, among other things, a prototype of a portable thermal camera system with integrated, low-power microdisplays for early and contactless detection of infected persons. This system will be presented at CES 2023 in Las Vegas, USA, 5-8 January, at the Fraunhofer FEP booth, No. 55822-3, German Pavilion, in the Venetian Expo Center.


Within the project secureAR (funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research), a cross-industry and open cloud-based service platform with open industry interfaces is being developed. Within secureAR, the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP (Dresden, Germany) is researching a novel hardware platform that is used in an innovative AR assistance system for the location- and situation-specific provision and visualisation of data in different industrial scenarios. This hardware platform will be presented at electronica 2022, from 15-18 November 2022, in Munich, Germany, at the Fraunhofer joint booth B4.258, in Hall B4.


Glass facades characterise modern architecture. While solar radiation serves to support heating in winter, the building interior heats up in summer and requires active cooling. Smart windows can regulate the solar radiation according to the weather situation – a forward-looking solution in times of energy saving. Fraunhofer FEP (Dresden, Germany) has now succeeded in producing the world's first thermochromic layer on ultra-thin glass in a roll-to-roll process. These results will make mechanical blinds superfluous in the future and at the same time reduce the cooling and heating energy requirements of a building.
