Combining empirical research and technology development, a strategic technology expertise in the field has been with the Heliosity concept light built in the LightFusionLab implemented of the Fraunhofer IAO and thus achieved a unique position in this area. The third place was awarded twice: Janina Baker and Matthias Peissner for the ergonomic and intuitive design of a user interface awarded, representing at the same time a uniform solution for the entire process chain of filling and packaging equipment of KHS GmbH. The human machine interface (HMI) also has already received the speech design dot best of the best for highest design quality, as well as the iF communication design award 2011 The jury was out, that the developed method the aspects of the user experience successfully implemented in the industrial environment. This shows that the design of the user interface could contribute significantly to the unique feature of a product. Dr. Heiko Ross nail and Jan Zibuschka were awarded for their research on the integration of mobile services for the support of major events. The scientists have developed a concept and implemented, that the increasing spread of Internet-enabled smartphones taking advantage of.

As an example of the Rhine Fireworks”Kolner Lichter, as well as for Bundesliga games of the 1st FC Cologne the project team has designed numerous mobile services, realized and tested, which can enhance the event experience and be helpful in critical situations. The central component of the concept is a service platform that allows a simple composition of value added, basic and emergency services. In addition to these award-winning research, the other six projects reflect both the diverse Range of activities of the Institute as the high practical relevance of the research at the Fraunhofer IAO reflected: CE-coach is a learning application for CE marking of machinery and equipment; It supports manufacturers in implementing the new machinery directive and basics regarding organization, liability, conversion and control. The ILO scientists have developed an interaction concept in the project”SAFE RIDER for motorcycle assistance systems on basis of new interaction elements, which have been tested in the laboratory, in the motorbike Simulator, as well as on the road. The topic master data management represents the basis for efficient business processes; the Fraunhofer IAO has developed a completely new approach in this area and thus newly entered the market of master data management. The development City Explorer offers airplane passengers the opportunity to meet their goal via a mobile service platform during the trip.

A novelty in the relatively young field of business model research is the development of moby Methodology for business agility dar. The methodology aims to increase the dynamics of service-based business processes in accordance with the business model by means of a methodical approach. The Fraunhofer IAO with one has in the area of language interaction quality offensive the acceptance and usability of voice applications in Germany on the basis of numerous research publications and standardization activities substantially promoted. For more information about the excellent and submitted research are on the Internet pages of the Fraunhofer IAO or available on request. Tobias Hug, Fraunhofer IAO
