Fraunhofer Transport Alliance

The Fraunhofer Transport Alliance was formed in March 2003, and currently represents the combined traffic-engineering expertise of fifteen Fraunhofer Institutes.

The Fraunhofer Transport Alliance develops adequate technical and conceptual solutions for the public and industry partners and puts these solutions into practice by means of transport-related research.

It creates a new choice in R&D in transport through the bundling of the existing potential and a broad system competency.

Due to their participation in international research programs member institutes have worldwide contacts with companies and research organizations involved in the fields of transportation engineering and management.

The Alliance’s office will help you to find the right partners.

»Fraunhofer Aviation Conference« at ILA

The Aviation Working Group of the Fraunhofer Transportation Alliance is pleased to invite you to a conference on »Digital Reality for Production and MRO Innovations«. The conference will address the chances and risks of the unfolding digitalisation in the field of aircraft production and MRO. The conference will provide an opportunity for participants to discuss future concepts and possible directions of innovation. Industry experts from the Fraunhofer Institute, Airbus, MTU and IATA will present their assessments of how the aviation industry may change as it innovates for comprehensive digitalisation. Artificial Intelligent systems will continuously develop and adapt their capabilities for reducing the workloads in production as well as MRO. People in the industry will be able to concentrate on system control functions and strategic decisions. Man-Machine collaboration will become part of new 'digital realities'.
