Exploiting Minerals in Mining more Efficiently with Artificial Intelligence

Numerous ore deposits have diminishing concentrations of mineable ore. In order to access the remaining ore, the mining industry uses elaborate procedures that consume large amounts of energy and water. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, together with three other partners, intends to use artificial intelligence and sensor fusion in order to analyze the concentration of valuable minerals as early as possible in the process and thereby conserve resources.

Fraunhofer IIS demonstrates direct IoT connectivity via GEO satellite

The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has successfully demonstrated the direct transmission of sensor data from multiple transmitters via a geostationary satellite. For the test transmission, the institute employed portable, ground-based transmitters equipped with small, omnidirectional C-band antennas. Fraunhofer IIS developed this particular transmission method specifically for Internet of Things applications that use satellites (Satellite IoT).

    Researchers at Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS succeeded in scanning objects as massive as freight containers, and analyzing them with three-dimensional images. The Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize 2018 went to Michael Salamon, Nils Reims, and Dr. Michael Böhnel for the development of XXL computed tomography. This is the sixth time in a row that Fraunhofer IIS was honored with the prize.

  • Imagine you could adapt the length of a radio documentary as you require or listen to a radio drama from the positions of different protagonists in the play. These and many more personalised, immersive listener experiences become possible due to a novel technological concept called object-based media, which will fundamentally change the production and user experience of radio broadcasts and multimedia productions. Key tools and apps for implementing object-based media for audio content have been developed by ORPHEUS, an EU-funded research project performed by ten major European media industry players.

  • 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.

    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.
