Reducing work-related accidents and production stops

Critical situations are occurring with greater frequency at industrial workplaces - situations that could lead to serious job-related accidents. With the "4Save" toolbox from Fraunhofer, these dangers do not arise at all.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau present the latest version of their "4Save" technologies at the Hannover Messe Digital Factory (Hall 7, Booth B10). The institute jointly developed this technology with Thüringen-based companies through the "BildRobo" collaborative project of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). It consists of the "Sim4Save" simulation tool, the "Link4Save" software platform and the new "Eye4Save" surveillance system, made by the Zentrum für Bild- und Signalverarbeitung e.V. Ilmenau (ZBS).

"The interaction between the individual components not only elevates safety, but also the efficiency of robot-supported workstations at the same time. This makes it possible to reduce work-related accidents and unnecessary production stops to a minimum", says Peter Pharow, Head of "Data Representation and Interfaces" at IDMT and co-developer of the "4Save" technology components, summarizing the advantages.
