Final report of the FutureIOT joint research project presents intelligent solutions for urban and agricultural connectivity

What all of us want is good air to breathe, healthy animals out to pasture and fertile arable land. How can the Internet of Things (IoT) help us solve such challenges, especially when climate change is making them all the more urgent? Within the project, the FutureIOT center of excellence, which is funded by the Bavarian Research Foundation, developed solutions for animal health, parking space management, air quality measurement and connected sensor technology for fields.

Efficient and robust networking: Fraunhofer IIS research team wins Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize 2021

The networking of objects in the Internet of Things — or IoT for short — is becoming increasingly important, and demand for connected IoT devices is growing rapidly everywhere, from consumers to Industry 4.0. But until now, no suitable and reliable method of communication has been available for transferring many thousands of data packages at the same time. A team of researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen/Nuernberg has now overcome this challenge with the newly developed, ready-for-market mioty® wireless low-power wide-area transmission system. The team receives the Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize, which is awarded to employees of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft for their outstanding scientific achievements in solving application-related problems.

At the Hannover Messe 2021, Fraunhofer IIS will be showing precise, cognitive technologies and solutions for IoT and 5G

What do localization and networking have in common with the Internet of Things? Both technologies are the basis for interactive and self-sufficient Industry 4.0 processes and smart mobility applications. A self-calibrating localization system allows flexible processes, tools, driverless transport systems, assembly systems etc. set-up, re-design and adapt to new work processes easily and in real time - in the production hall as well as outdoors. Beautiful vision or reality? The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits in cooperation with the Fraunhofer CCIT Research Center IoT Comms will show how this can be achieved at Hannover Industry Trade Show 2021. For this, the localization and communication specialists will present technologies and solutions as well as a unique 5G testbed for Industry 4.0, in which companies can already realize and experience tomorrow today.
