Central process control, by intelligent good carriers and cyber-physical systems (CPS) enables a complete transparency of the current production status in order to control production planning flexibly an efficiently.
Containers are equipped with sensors and s-net® technology, e.g. to detect and communicate filling levels. The smart containers form a cyber-physical system and provide the necessary data to automate Kanban processes.
ConTrack is a freight tracking system with localization and mobile or satellite communication. Both the containers and the freight are monitored on their transport routes. For example, to optimize logistics processes or initiate measures to protect the goods.
The FutureIOT joint research project develops IoT solutions for practical challenges in the “City.digital” and “Agriculture.digital” project domains. Robust radio transmission is provided by the mioty® LPWAN technology.
Components made of fiberglass composite are reliably checked for constant loads. Integrated sensors can record temperature and load data. These can be read out by means of wireless data and energy transmission.
