Boundless 5G

In the project Grenzenlos5G@BYBW concrete use cases for 5G in logistics under real conditions in the Swabian region are tested.

5G applications for the digitization of construction processes

In the project  Smart Construction, 5G applications for the digitization of construction processes are being tested on a real construction site.

5G: Saving lives

In the project 5G: Stadt.Land.Leben retten. together with partners, we are developing and testing positioning and networking technologies for three fields of application: emergency calls, first aid and emergency services.  


RIS4NGWB deals with the promotion of test infrastructures and studies in the 5G/6G backbone area. The aim is to demonstrate the enhancement of security and resilience in wireless backhaul. 


RedFIR® stands for an innovative radio-based location technology that locates people and objects in real time with high accuracy.

IndLoc® for material detection

The intelligent object and fill-level monitoring functionality can detect various metallic objects, accurately telling them apart without the need for visual contact. In addition, it can display the fill level of individual containers and distinguish electronic components from one another.   

IndLoc® – GoalRef goal-line technology

GoalRef goal-line technology detects exactly when a soccer ball completely crosses the goal line and the goal is valid. In this use case, the soccer ball is equipped with a passive coil that enables precise localization of the ball. The data is evaluated in fractions of a second and sent to the referee’s watch.

IndLoc® for 3D positioning

Inductive near-field positioning enables the precise position of various objects to be determined in three dimensions. For this purpose, objects or people are equipped with passive coils (e.g. in the form of bracelets – known as wearables) to track their movements.

IndLoc® for area monitoring

Area monitoring makes it possible to selectively detect the crossing of boundaries. By establishing a geofence, specific areas can thus be demarcated and controlled, providing effective protection for employees and objects.

Museum and Fairs

Multimedia guides with awiloc® positioning give museum visits a new quality. They offer visitors additional content exactly where they want it - in the right location, multi-layered and convenient.


Testing of new strategies and technologies for linking the transportation system and energy supply as well as for navigation in buildings.

Positioning in Car Parks

For conventional navigation systems, it's usually over by the time they enter the parking garage. The GPS signals cannot penetrate the concrete ceilings or scatter too much. 


Precise positioning for IoT-networks.


ways4me combines indoor and outdoor navigation with real-time traffic information retrieval and communication with public transport.

Mobile Walk

GPS-independent localization in the cities of Erlangen, Nuremberg and Fürth. 


In the future, online functions could be integrated into "NaviScout" to provide information about currently starting or postponed panel discussions and forum contributions, for example.

Route Train Navigation

awiloc® as a basis for the routing of route trains.

Indoor positioning
