Efficient picking with JUNGHEINRICH’s easyPILOT Follow: Thanks to the precise positioning developed by Fraunhofer IIS, the picking vehicle automatically follows people and simplifies workflows during loading and unloading.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
