Fraunhofer IIS presents technologies for the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 at CeBIT
Erlangen/Hanover, March 15, 2016 – CeBIT, Hall 6, Booth B36: In the Internet of Things (IoT), objects and products communicate and link up independently and exchange important information. With MIOTY, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is presenting an intelligent platform for IoT applications at CeBIT 2016. Up to 100,000 sensors can connect to the platform at the same time and send and exchange information. Transmission from the sensor to the platform is by means of a patented and robust wireless protocol, which works even over large distances and guarantees reliable relaying of the sensor data. MIOTY can be used for IoT applications in digitized production and for long-distance querying of data in intelligent environments. Fraunhofer IIS also shows the practical use of intelligent wireless sensor networks for goods picking and in digital production, as well as in software-based energy management solutions with a special safety security.
