Current topics

Press releases

All press releases from the field of localization and networking can be found under Press from Fraunhofer IIS.

 

Fraunhofer IIS at electronica

The Fraunhofer Institute IIS will present technologies for cognitive sensors and electronic components in the Internet of Things (IoT) at the electronica from 13th to 16th November 2018. With live demonstrations, visitors can learn how processes and applications with localization, communication and power supply technologies can be made more effective in order to maintain competitive advantages.

 

EnABLES

The European Union H2020 «EnABLES» research infrastructure project has just launched its Transnational Access program, which offers free-of-charge access to equipment, tools and expertise related to «powering the Internet of Things (IoT)». The vision of EnABLES is to develop Energy Harvesting solutions and finding ways to reduce the power consumption of devices to eliminate the need for battery replacement.

 

Fraunhofer IIS at the Sensor + Test 2018

At the Sensor + Test 2018 from 26 to 28 June 2018 in Nuremberg, Fraunhofer IIS showed how production, logistics and transport processes can be optimized with the correct use of data. The tracking of goods was so far only with great effort, without digital proof and usually not completely possible. With the energy self-sufficient tracking system ENTRAS of Fraunhofer IIS, a low-installation, application-oriented and consistent localization is possible

 

Cyber Security for IoT applications

Meanwhile almost every area of daily life needs modern communication systems. Reliable communication systems are essential for a functioning economy and our closely networked society.

Our goal: To increase the safety awareness of all involved

 

Thermoelectric power supply for industrial applications

Digital networking of sensors is required in industrial companies. Not only communication but also energy supply challenges the industry in such environments. Fraunhofer IIS offers an attractive solution compared to batteries and wired power supply with Energy Harvesting technologies. The BlueTEG Pipe is a regenerative, maintenance-free and easy-to-install power supply for any wireless sensor in production.

 

Energy self-sufficient tracking

Together with the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Fraunhofer IIS developed a tracking system that monitors selected sensor data with energy self-sufficiency. With previous solutions, it is only possible to reliably locate rescue workers in hazardous environments or track containers in the industry with little effort. The results of the project were presented at the Hannover Messe 2017.

 

Edge Computing Platform OGEMA

Digital Industry 4.0 processes generate a multitude of data. Frequently, cloud communication is not quick and effective enough. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS introduced OGEMA, an Edge Computing platform, at the Hannover Messe, which provides economical and secure data collection and processing of information directly in the application.

Fairs and Events

 

electronica 2018

Visit us from the 13th to the 16th of November 2018 in Munich at the electronica. Find out more about new products of Energy Harvesting at our Fraunhofer booth in Hall C5 / 426. We are looking forward to interesting discussions.
