IMMS serves small and medium-sized industrial enterprises through preliminary research. It acts as their strategic partner in the development of microelectronic and mechatronic products and of systems technology. With its solutions, the institute connects information technology to the real world. For its partners, IMMS is the cutting edge, slicing through the barriers between research results and manufacturing. The institute is thus a veritable bridge between science and industry.

Our activities are driven by the need for technological contributions to help meet societal challenges like the protection of the environment, the efficient use of energy and resources, and the preservation of health and safety in public, private and industrial spheres.

As cyber-physical systems as the basis of the ”Internet of Things and Services“ will contain a huge number of components and will be massively distributed, energy- and resource-efficiency of those systems are of great significance. Our research therefore focuses on the development of highly energy-efficient microelectronic and embedded systems for the acquisition, processing and communication of measurement and control data. For this purpose, we investigate and create hardware and software solutions for wired and wireless sensor and actuator networks, particularly regarding aspects such as communication protocols, real-time capability, and energy-autonomous operation.

Furthermore, we focus our research activities on technology for the development and the integration of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), sensor systems for biological analysis and medical technology, and electromagnetic direct drives with nanometer precision.
