Project B ZERO: CML develops the watchfree bridge

In our new research project "B ZERO", the CML designs the concept of the watchfree bridge. Under the leadership of the CML, funded by the program "Maritime Technologien der nächsten Generation" (Next Generation of Maritime Technologies), sensor technologies and decision support systems are being developed to enable a temporary watchfree bridge on merchant ships.

 

New TOS-Study 2021

Targeted data analysis enables almost infinite possibilities for gaining specific information and optimizing processes, and the evolution of AI use is far from complete. Learn more in our study on Terminal Operating Systems (TOS) on the implications of AI on the way terminals are managed today and in the near future.

10 Years of Innovative Research - Fraunhofer CML celebrates its Anniversary

On October 7, 2020, the Fraunhofer CML celebrated its 10th anniversary with a senate reception in the Hamburg City Hall. Read more about this and our first ten years in our press release and in our brochure "Auf Kurs"!

 

Web Service Layer - Next Generation

The Web Service Layer provided by Fraunhofer CML is designed to deal with complex robotic systems. Even when there are multiple operators simultaneously controlling multiple robotic systems remotely, the integrity and traceability of data are guaranteed through the authentication and access control mechanism. 

Biomimetic Solutions - Nature Inspired Technological Advancement

Evolution over the past three billion years has generated a diversity of biological solutions. Biomimetics can function as a strategic concept to create highly innovative and sustainable biomimetic solutions throughout all industries. FInd out more in our product sheet.
