Intelligent signal analysis and assistance systems

Official opening of the High-Performance Center InSignA

News /

On Wednesday, June 29, 2022, the InSignA High-Performance center was officially opened at the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau. Due to Corona, the official opening could only take place one year after the actual project start. Five Thuringian Fraunhofer Institutes, the TU Ilmenau and the IMMS Institut für Mikroelektronik- und Mechatronik-Systeme gemeinnützige GmbH have already been working together in the performance center since March 2021. Together with businesses, the performance center aims to bring solution approaches in the field of sensor technology and signal analysis into application. IKTS with its Battery Innovation and Technology Center BITC in Arnstadt contributes, among other things, to the pre-processing and optimization of data sets.

The performance center wants to establish itself as a research and development partner for manufacturing companies as well as for energy suppliers and robotics companies. Through the close cooperation of the research institutions in the performance center with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the region, the companies are to receive direct support with regard to their product developments and innovations. The performance center InSignA - Intelligent Signal Analysis and Assistance Systems is the second Thuringian initiative of this kind - in Jena there is already the High-Performance Center Photonics.

The invitation to the opening event was accepted by more than 50 representatives of regional politics and business, as well as partners of the InSignA High-Performance Center and representatives of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the Technical University of Ilmenau. Among the guests were the Thuringian State Secretary for Research, Innovation and Economic Development, Dr. Katja Böhler, the Director of Research of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Prof. Dr. Raoul Klingner, the Mayor of the City of Ilmenau, Dr. Daniel Schultheiß, and the President of the TU Ilmenau, Prof. Dr. Kai-Uwe Sattler. Among the invited guests were also representatives of companies and industry associations based in the region.
