Flat Force Sensors Offer New Possibilities for Data Acquisition
Whether in the industrial environment, in mobility or at home: Smart Services require data that is processed and evaluated. Altosens GmbH/DE, a Fraunhofer LBF/DE spin-off from Osnabrück founded in April 2022, offers novel cloud-based force sensors that measure forces where this was previously not easily possible. This allows unexpected service operations to be reduced and therefore systems that are difficult to access to be operated more economically. The digital transformation, Industry 4.0 and Smart Services pose major challenges for industry. Machine learning and artificial intelligence methods are opening up new opportunities for value creation via data-driven business models. Common to all applications and business models is the use of multi-physical sensor data. In order to obtain relevant data with little additional effort, economically feasible, robust and easily integrable sensors are required.
