SDG 9: industry, innovation and infrastructure

How it guides our research

We want our technology to be a driver towards Industry 4.0 and even 5.0. Some examples:

  • By developing sensors and wireless technologies for the Internet of Things, we help shape the digital transformation of our society.
  • Through deterministic networking, we prepare mobile networks for the reliability and latency needs of flexible industrial environments.
  • Our hyperspectral imaging cameras and sensors pave the way for novel applications in domains such as machine vision and remote sensing.
  • Our AI roadmap focuses on edge AI – a key enabler for advanced IoT applications.
