The Fraunhofer Business Unit Vision pools the expertise of the Fraunhofer Institutes in the fields of machine vision, image processing and optical testing and measurement techniques.
Image processing systems can be applied in nearly all industrial fields and the Fraunhofer Business Unit Vision develops solutions for many different areas, with a clear focus on quality assurance in the industrial production floor. Besides that, the Fraunhofer Business Unit Vision covers fields like medical technology, safety and traffic engineering or art and archeology as well.

The main goal of the Fraunhofer Business Unit Vision is the development of new or improved devices for industrial inspection.  In finding solutions for each project our customers' options are expanded by the exchange of knowledge and experience between the institutes involved in the business unit. This is further complimented by an even wider network of related companies and universities with which Fraunhofer Business Unit Vision works.

As a contact point, the Central Office of the Fraunhofer Business Unit Vision offers competent advice to interested parties and potential customers, as well as answers to all questions relating to image processing.
