With our research results we support the economy and society.

#WeKnowHow - Online Lecture Series »Radar in Action«

Experts from Fraunhofer are at the forefront of the fight against the COVID 19 pandemic - and support industry and society in coping with its direct effects and subsequent consequences. We at Fraunhofer FHR are developing new radar applications to support the economy and society in these difficult times.

With the presentation of our research results we would like to show what is possible with radar and how you can use the possibilities. Unfortunately, this is hardly possible in personal form at the moment. That is why we have started the public online lecture series "Radar in Action" on the institute's various radar applications: from contactless life sign detection and space observation to autonomous driving and much more. The lectures are aimed at customers, partners and interested parties from industry, politics, science and society.

The half-hourly events take place on Tuesdays every two weeks at 2 pm CET. They include live presentations on a radar application - partly including live demonstrations using experimental systems as well as opportunities for questions and exchange. Participation is free of charge, only a registration is necessary.
