IMMS con­ducts rese­arch to make pio­nee­ring results from sci­ence acces­si­ble to indus­try through appli­ca­tion-ori­en­ted deve­lo­p­ments in order to streng­then their com­pe­ti­ti­ve­ness with inno­va­tions. Deve­lo­p­ments with indus­try in turn reveal needs and chal­lenges for new approa­ches, which IMMS works on in its rese­arch fields.

For all of this, IMMS works in inter­di­sci­pli­nary teams and with rese­arch part­ners such as the TU Ilmenau as well as regio­nal and natio­nal rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons and tech­no­logy providers.

On the basis of its rese­arch work, IMMS is deve­lo­ping sen­sor sys­tems for in-vitro dia­gno­stics, for exam­ple, which enable indi­vi­dual, decen­tra­li­zed health moni­to­ring for ever­yone with elec­tro­nic rapid tests. Energy-effi­ci­ent solu­ti­ons for RFID sen­sors and IoT sys­tems are being rese­ar­ched in order to open up new appli­ca­ti­ons for coope­ra­tive envi­ron­men­tal moni­to­ring and make indus­trial pro­ces­ses more resource-effi­ci­ent. IMMS is rese­ar­ching solu­ti­ons for adap­tive edge AI sys­tems to enable AI on low-con­sump­tion embedded sys­tems in indus­try and to net­work them in real time. In order to be able to manu­fac­ture the ever-incre­asing com­ple­xity of these inte­gra­ted sys­tems on ever-smal­ler semi­con­duc­tor sur­faces, IMMS is rese­ar­ching ever more pre­cise dri­ves for nano­me­ter mea­su­re­ment and struc­tu­ring of objects.

IMMS sup­ports you throug­hout your entire rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment pro­cess, from the initial idea to the design of com­pon­ents and assem­blies to the embedded sys­tem, inclu­ding sys­tem inte­gra­tion, pro­to­type con­s­truc­tion and trans­fer to series pro­duc­tion as well as pro­duc­tion transition.
