From prototype to application
The fortiss Labs act as an important link between science and practice. They provide a broad and interested audience with an application-oriented, interactive platform to exchange ideas on the diverse topics of digital transformation and to engage with novel software systems and innovations. Within this framework, fortiss provides a transfer offer for products and services as well as for the further development of business models.
In addition, the fortiss Labs are a valuable research driver, as they access the concentrated expertise in the fortiss competence fields and an outstanding industry-specific hardware infrastructure. They offer the very best conditions for applying current research results, identifying necessary improvements through testing, and initiating new research directions.
The premises are located on the 15th floor of the Highlight Towers Munich and feature a test site in the application domains Industrial IoT (IloT), Mobility, Robotics, Energy and Neuromorphic Computing. Here, fortiss scientists identify and analyze central, industry-relevant issues. They develop and combine state-of-the-art research methods from the various disciplines, test technologies under realistic conditions and prepare the results as prototypes for practical application.
In order to successfully implement research projects, fortiss researchers not only need a deep understanding of technology, but also a profound knowledge of market requirements. The fortiss Labs offer an experimental and testing ground for future topics, such as the IIoT, intuitive programming of robots, intelligent control of energy systems, autonomous driving, or neuromorphic computing as a new generation of AI.
The fortiss Labs offer tailored support and specific opportunities for companies, scientists and students.
Especially for medium-sized companies, which often do not have research and development departments and thus do not have extensive validation and testing tools, fortiss creates a modern experimentation and training environment with a state-of-the-art lab infrastructure. In this context, relevant issues can be jointly researched and viable solutions for business challenges can be developed.
