Fraunhofer FEP: Modular AR service platform for industrial production

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.

Fraunhofer FEP: Thin-film technologies for the energy transition

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.

Fraunhofer FEP: World´s first organic photovoltaic cell on recycled material made by EU-consortium FlexFunction2Sustain

The partners of the EU project FlexFunction2Sustain have committed themselves to create a network for innovative solutions for sustainable and smart products powered by nano-functionalised paper and plastic in order to support SMEs, start-ups and industries in the development and market launch of pioneering products. After the first two years, a number of promising results and prototypes have emerged and have been presented at the Conference for Industrial Technologies IndTech 2022 in Grenoble, France, 27-29 June 2022. Among them, a recently finalised highlight: the first working organic photovoltaic cell on recycled plastics.
