Voices from industry and academia

Reinhard Jurisch, microsensys

”In my role as a member of the industrial advisory council to the GreenSense research group, I have actively accompanied the research work done by IMMS over the last three years on the subject of smart energy-efficient sensor systems. The project scientists' aims were to develop microelectronic multi-sensors with an RFID interface and also to develop new ways of creating micromechatronic energy harvesters. My team members and I gave support to the working party in the form of detailed advisory sessions sharing technical know-how on RFID sensors and how they may be applied industrially. Very promising technology has emerged from the research work.

In order to build on the results, IMMS has already become involved in new joint R&D projects which will, in collaboration with ourselves and other sensor companies, advance the field of networked industrial sensors. IMMS, being the sole research institute in Thüringen for microelectronic applications, has a central role for enterprises like ours in the region, acting as technology partner and coordinator for joint industrial research with public funding.“
