About Fraunhofer Vision
Fraunhofer Vision Alliance
The Fraunhofer Vision Alliance pools the expertise of the Fraunhofer Institutes in the fields of machine vision, image processing, optical testing and measurement techniques. The cooperation within this network enables the early detection of requirements of the market and allows the Fraunhofer Vision Institutes to tackle technological challenges. Having a clear focus on applied research, the network pursues the objective of making new developments accessible under industrial conditions. Standard and specially designed cameras, as well as infrared or X-ray sensors are used for imaging. On request, we will provide complete solutions including automated handling systems. The Vision Partners, a network of related companies and universities with which Fraunhofer Vision works, further compliments these abilities.
As a contact point, the Central Office of the Fraunhofer Vision Alliance in Erlangen offers competent advice to interested parties and potential customers, as well as answers to all questions relating to image processing.
From here, we will connect you with the best available experts.
In addition, Fraunhofer Vision conceives and organizes conferences and training workshops on current issues, as well as marketing and PR activities, trade fair presentations and technical publications.
The management of the Central Office supports and coordinates the exchange of information and knowledge between the members of the network and initiates projects.
