The FZI Research Center for Information Technology, based in Karlsruhe, was founded 39 years ago with the aim of paving the way for technology transfer from research to business and industry and triggering innovation impulses. The main focus is on future-proof and sustainable digital change. At HANNOVER MESSE 2024, the institute will provide an up-to-date insight into its diverse research work.

The mobility of the future is connected and automated

CoCar NextGen is the FZI's latest research vehicle in the field of connected and automated driving. With its state-of-the-art sensor technology and computing power, the vehicle can be used for complex research requirements on the entire German road network. The modular design also allows the test vehicle to be optimally adapted to a wide range of research requirements.

Fighting manipulation with media expertise

Fake news is becoming more diverse, linguistically more sophisticated and more difficult to identify, particularly thanks to generative AI. Sustainability processes are also disrupted by opinion manipulation. With the LLMM (Large Language Media Manipulator) demonstrator, the FZI aims to raise awareness of how texts can be changed in nuances with the help of current language model technologies, thereby exerting a strong influence on the reader's point of view.

Robotics and AI working together for efficient recycling

Returning valuable resources to the production cycle is complicated in the case of electronic waste due to the complex steps involved. With the demonstrator "Robot-based recycling of e-waste", the FZI is presenting a smart robotic arm that can sort components according to their recyclability and separate harmful substances.

Data protection-compliant research

Future mobility solutions will be data-driven and strongly oriented towards the needs of users. With regard to data protection, sensitive handling of data is essential. The competence cluster ANYMOS - Anonymization for Mobility - is investigating the practical use of anonymization techniques in order to preserve the usefulness of the data. To this end, a process model is to be established that guides companies in identifying needs and opportunities for anonymization, selecting suitable state-of-the-art methods, applying them correctly and also identifying and evaluating systemic re-identification risks.

Options for action in the transformation to climate neutrality

At HANNOVER MESSE 2024, climate coaches from the SME Digital Center Climate.Neutral.Digital will advise small and medium-sized enterprises on their options for action in the transformation to climate neutrality and the development of sustainability strategies. As a basis for discussion, the topics are determined at random via the "Wheel of Sustainability" and offer a low-threshold introduction to the comprehensive range of sustainability topics.
