10 years of Fraunhofer IOSB - A young institute with a long history

Since its foundation in 2010, the Fraunhofer IOSB undertakes applied research that drives economic development and serves the wider benefit of society. Despite being a young institute, we can nonetheless look back on a long and successful history. This is because Fraunhofer IOSB is the product of a merger between two previously existing institutes: Fraunhofer IITB and FGAN-FOM.

As the largest European research institution in the field of image acquisition, processing and analysis, Fraunhofer IOSB today plays a central role in the innovation process in Germany and Europe.
