The IRS brings together experts in laser technology and innovative measurement techniques in optronics as well as in state-of-the-art methods of control engineering in automation technology. Our vision is integrated automation systems in a continuous process chain with a perfect balance between autonomy and cooperation, with which we shape and advance the digital transformation of our society. The overriding guiding principle is always sustainable cooperation between people and technology.

In doing so, we pursue a seamless integration of methodologically oriented basic research with the transfer into innovation via the personnel connection with the Fraunhofer IOSB and the Forschungszentrum Informatik (FZI).
