In the area of mechanical engineering / robotics Fraunhofer ENAS addresses topics of automation and digitalization of manufacturing. The focus is on the provision of technologies for the individualization of products and the sensor-based monitoring of production. The necessary smart production environments are supported by own sensor solutions. These include, in particular, sensor solutions that ensure machine condition and process monitoring within production. For example, in addition to the implementation of plug-and-play functionality for the replacement of sensors in production environments, the development of new sensor systems for harsh environments or the monitoring of production aids such as greases and oils or the control of air quality is also involved.
