“It’s all about connecting everyday things to the Internet.”
The FutureIOT platform uses the mioty® technology developed at Fraunhofer IIS. Designed for massive IoT applications in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or in the smart city sector, this wireless sensor network reliably and robustly transmits many thousands of data packets at the same time and over long distances. The research work focused on testing and researching the technology’s transmission power and coverage, establishing a mioty ecosystem and implementing it in the partner companies’ products.
“The FutureIOT project marks a technological leap forward for Fraunhofer IIS,” Heuberger says. “And it has also created a strong network of research partners and users that will continue to come up with solutions in the future.”
