Sensors made in Bavaria

Intelligent sensor systems made in Bavaria

Future trends and technologies could not be realized with­out sensors as the »sensory organs« of technology. As a trailblazer and supporting pillar of digitalization, sensor technology is a key technology of the 21st century. Con­crete solution approaches in the field of (industrial) artifi­cial intelligence and for a smart extension of our living and working environments, from energy-efficient cities, au­tonomous mobility, and sustainable ecosystems to auto­mation and new collaborative systems, are based on data supplied by sensors and evaluated by measurement tech­nology. When they are equipped with the required artificial intelligence, sensors also enable approaches for entirely new, data-driven business models and services.

In this economically significant and rapidly growing indus­try sector, Bavaria has numerous outstanding technol­ogy partners driving the development of intelligent sensor systems. Bavaria assumes a leading role on the national stage. The pronounced sensor technology expertise of Bavarian universities and research institutions along with highly specialized trade fairs complete Bavaria’s profile as a leading sensor technology site. The mission of the sen­sor technology network is to continuously expand Bavar­ia’s technology and market leadership worldwide under the leading strategy of »Intelligent Sensor Systems Made in Bavaria«.

Strategische Partnerschaft Sensorik e.V. (SPS) and the Sensor Technology Cluster have been bundling Bavar­ia’s sensor technology expertise for more than 15 years. About 90 members and 250 partners include numerous internationally leading, highly innovative companies and in­stitutions. They support the sensor technology network with a comprehensive range of services for operational and strategic matters. All activities have always been based on the needs of the players themselves, commu­nicated to network management through close interaction with the members.
