Research Center IoT-COMMs

Networked, agile and mobile production systems as well as applications for autonomous driving are future topics at our Research Centre IoT-COMMs. For this, we combine and develop the basic technologies networks, positioning and information security further.

Our offer

  • Development and integration of trusted and cognitive sensors for position finding and determination of time
  • Development and integration of safety concepts and cryptographic protocols for protection of IoT networks on hardware and software level
  • Robust and common transmission systems for (latency-)critical Datas
  • Development and integration of energy self-sufficient cognitive sensors
  • Object recognition and classification

Smart Screw Connections

Smart Screw Connection

 

Critical threaded fasteners protect all our lives and must be inspected regularly. Intelligent threaded fasteners enable wireless and energy-independent monitoring of the fastener as a simple and universal assembly option.  

 

Flexible localization solutions

FlexLoc

 

The requirements for efficient and agile production processes are growing all the time. FlexLoc applications are flexible localization solutions for locating and tracking production-relevant objects and for automating production and logistics processes.

Mobile Galileo PRS snapshot sensor

Manipulation of data in Asset Tracking excluded. The Mobile Galileo PRS Snapshot Sensor provides forgery-proof position, time and sensor data through the use of the Galileo Public Regulated Service (PRS).

 

Smart sensor systems

CPS.connect

When it comes to the field of installation engineering, it is necessary for transportable, temporary paired machine components to be paired with the respective facilities through information technology. To achieve this goal retrofittable, wireless sensor technology is used.

 

Smart tools

SmartTool.connect

In the light of the increase of the self-regulation in processes through smart machines and components, active tools - which surveil the processes and are ultrasound-proof - are needed.  

 

Smart Intersection

Smart Intersection

One of the biggest challenges of autonomous driving is the quick recognition as well as the correct assessment of traffic situations. The cooperative all-round environment-sensing system of Smart Intersection takes on these challenges.
