Long-distance, energy-efficient and robust – sensor data transmission in the Industrial Internet of Things

At Hannover Messe, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is presenting MIOTY®, the wireless transmission technology for applications in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Thanks to a reliable, robust process, this system can transmit data from several hundred thousand sensors over long distances securely, efficiently and with low power consumption. It is ideally suited to applications such as remote monitoring of large industrial facilities, buildings or company grounds as well as to smart city solutions. MIOTY® is a hardware-independent software solution that was incorporated into the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) standardization for low-throughput networks. The Fraunhofer experts are demonstrating the licensable MIOTY® technology on the latest hardware components as a monitoring solution for industry.

Volkswagen is testing Fraunhofer IIS’s innovative Pick-by-Local-Light order picking system in Dresden

Nürnberg/Dresden: In 2016, the Pick-by-Local-Light (PbLL) system was selected as one of 18 innovations for the Volkswagen Logistics Innovation Day in Wolfsburg. An initial test system has been in operation at Volkswagen’s “Gläserne Manufaktur” assembly and exhibition center in Dresden since March 2018. Its purpose is to evaluate PbLL’s basic functions and the value it adds: quick installation and easy rearrangement of shelving makes order picking flexible and efficient. Results of the first tests indicate that with the new system, orders can be processed twice as fast as before.
