Environmental Platform Ensiro®#

Ensiro – Wireless sensors for environmental stations

In the Ensiro® project, the Wireless Sensor Applications Center of the Fraunhofer IIS in Coburg is developing demonstrators and applications in the field of environmental sensors together with industrial partners. In doing so, various application scenarios are addressed in which environmental data is important, e.g. fine dust and air pollutants, indoor climate in offices and production facilities or personal weather information.

Furthermore, the goal is to create a system that is modular at hardware and software level, with the help of which different environmental measurement values can be collected and easily integrated into an IoT platform, so that they can be made available individually for each target group. For this purpose, state-of-the-art technologies such as Cloud and Edge Computing as well as energy and range-optimized radio technologies are used.




Especially in city centers, the recording of air quality parameters is becoming increasingly important. In addition to the concentration of particulate matter, nitrogen oxides also play a decisive role. It is desirable that the measured values ​​are recorded at many points in order to obtain a meaningful database. In order to build a large number of measuring devices in a city, they must be as compact and inexpensive as possible.



Especially in production plants and in the industrial environment, it is crucial that environmental conditions are kept within an optimal framework in order to keep product quality high and rejects low. This requires sensors that permanently monitor, for example, air temperature or humidity. For a perfect production environment, the environmental parameters must be right next to the process sequences.
