Servizio Comunitario di Informazione in materia di Ricerca e Sviluppo - CORDIS


With the IPCIM project Precitec Optronik GmbH as a SME was able to start the costly investigations on implementing the new semiconductor technology CMOS into sensor systems, which have to work under extreme environmental conditions. The excellent composition of the consortium on the one hand increased the knowledge in soft-computing and generated new ways of thinking as regards to intelligent control strategies, on the other hand was helpful to directly test the different levels of development.

The acquired knowledge led into two different applications, sensors for on-line process monitoring and sensors for process control (seam tracking), both on the same hardware basis generated in IPCIM. The typical applications of the results are mainly laser beam welding application in heavy industry. With the results out of IPCIM project Precitec Optronik GmbH is able to launch two products on the market and broaden the product spectra in the near future.
