Development of innovative cameras. Optimal use and networking of sensors. Processing and analyzing the resulting data streams according to the task at hand, leading to decision support systems for humans or intelligent control mechanisms for autonomous systems. This comprehensive process and exploitation chain is our domain. Our expertise in all these areas comes to use for applications as diverse as automation, inspection or civil security: Our technology assists drivers or doctors in critical situations, detects and analyses dangers in public spaces or revolutionises deep-sea research using underwater drones, to name just a few examples. With more than 500 employees - 350 of them in Karlsruhe and Ettlingen - the Fraunhofer IOSB is one of the larger Fraunhofer Institutes. Like the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft as a whole, we are committed to application-oriented research for the benefit of society and economy. We shape the future. Scientific and technological excellence are just as much a part of our DNA as customer orientation and reliability towards our clients from industry and public authorities. Our most important and valuable capital are our employees. That is why personal and professional development, individual freedom and the compatibility of career and family are so important to us.
