IoT Positioning for Smart City and IIoT

The localization of people and objects is becoming increasingly relevant for current and future IoT applications. Communication technologies with the possibility of localization often offer the decisive added value. Especially for existing IoT networks, localization can be easily and cost-effectively integrated.

The combination of Fraunhofer localization expertise and LPWAN technology mioty® makes it possible to operate IoT localization solutions in the Smart City and IIoT areas.



mioty® - robust LPWAN technology for massive IoT

mioty® is a software-based connectivity solution for the set-up of safe and efficient Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWAN) as well as for big and commercial IoT applications. The mioty® technology is an implementation of the ETSI standard „TS 103357“.
