Hannover / 04/24/2017 - 04/28/2017
Hannover Messe 2017
The Fraunhofer IIS – ideal partner for the digital transformation – develops and showcases IoT-technologies for Industrie 4.0 applications as well as technologies, systems and solutions for manufacturing and warehouse applications at HMI 2017.
Positioning and networking technologies, assisted assembly and warehouse management technologies, smart tool tracking e.g. for automotive manufacturing, container management 4.0, smart autarkic positioning of forklifts and industrial trucks, mobile commissioning systems and measurement services for positioning and networking.
With extensive experience in localization, we offer tailored positioning technologies for your field of application. We generate added value for digital processes through better location-based information. At the HMI 2017 exhibition, you can gain an insight into our applications for positioning objects such as industrial trucks or containers.
Fraunhofer IIS is utilizing the advantages of magnetic field localization to support the important step of order picking. This is done by placing a coil around a shelf. The system uses a second coil placed in a wearable to identify which compartment the employee is reaching into. This gadget helps visualize the information for the picker.
Positioning is a key competence of Fraunhofer IIS. Our L.I.N.K. test and application center tests the quality of our technologies. We also offer these measurements as a service to evaluate and compare positioning systems. The results focus on accuracy and reliability and are presented in an objective and reproducible report.
