INNOVENT is a private, non-profit research association working on the areas of physical and chemical surface engineering and material and system development with a strong emphasis on biomaterials, magnetic materials and optical systems. INNOVENT, which was founded 1994, supports with its 140 employees, small, medium-sized and even large enterprises in their research and development activities. For this purpose, the development projects at INNOVENT are performed in close connection with our partners from industry to transfer scientific and technical know-how in a fast and direct way to new products and technologies.
What motivates us
INNOVENT works in various fields of science and engineering. One of our areas of expertise is magnetic field generation, measurement and simulation of complex magnetic systems. Navigation is a pressing problem for autonomous robot systems. To us, ECHORD represents a very good platform in which to establish an ambient magnetic field based navigation system. The degree of specialization for robotic system development based on the multiplicity of innovative firms is very high and represents a good base for innovative solutions and systems.
