From September 3rd (10.00 a.m.) to 7th (3.00 p.m.)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the megatrends of our time. But what exactly can you actually do with it? Find out at our MIOTY Summer School!
MIOTY, the IoT sensor network developed here at the Fraunhofer IIS, sets new standards for wireless data transmission in terms of range, transmission security, battery life and cost efficiency.
True to the spirit of Joseph von Fraunhofer, the researcher, developer and entrepreneur after whom our institute is named, the week will be spent investigating wireless transmission technologies, developing application ideas and implementing them in prototypes.
MIOTY opens the door to a variety of applications. For example, the technology allows monitoring of large-scale technological systems or poorly accessible locations. Uses include transmission of switch states, communication between machines (M2M communication) or wireless remote readings and user control for smart metering applications (Industrial IoT). Fields such as sport or security also rely on transmission of data from a range of sensors. For instance, the Fraunhofer IIS wireless data transmission technology can be used to reliably transmit the vital signs of athletes or emergency personnel such as firefighters or first responders. Sensors to detect humidity, movement, light, temperature or pressure can all be integrated into MIOTY according to the requirements of the application at hand.
