Forum 4: Hardware & Software II
Let's keep moving on!
Wireless IoT: Technologies for tomorrow's solutions
Where are the technologies - active/passive RFID, BLE, LPWAN, etc. - compared? Experts report on the design of transponders, antennas and readers, ranges, energy efficiency or protection classes and give a detailed picture of state-of-the-art solutions.
How can the highest possible production quality be ensured? Experts for testing and measurement give the answer.
Hardware and software in accordance
Hard to handle, smart to function - Special beacons and transponders can be used under the most adverse conditions. Whether on or in metal, in painting or drying systems, in sterilisation equipment or in direct contact with chemicals and high mechanical loads.
Only a transponder alone does not bring any benefits. Added values are only generated from the recorded data of the transponders in the perfectly coordinated interplay of networking.
Wireless IoT technologies are the ideal partner for sensors: In compact designs, sensor transponders can measure parameters such as temperatures, pressures, vibrations, accelerations or luminous intensity in the remotest corners of a production plant, during transport on the high seas or underground and send them to higher-level systems via wireless interfaces.
The product quality during transport can be monitored or manufacturing tolerances in production machines can be controlled - the spectrum of possible applications is inexhaustible.
Smart Labels are the all-rounders among transponders. Billions of pieces are used as simple paperface labels in fashion retail or baggage tracking. Built with special covering and shielding materials, Smart Labels are ready for use on metal even in industrial processes at more than 200 degrees Celsius.
Current trends: The development of sustainable labels that completely dispense with plastics. From the use of printed electronics to energy harvesting solutions. As embeddable or inmould-enabled ID labels, smart labels become the interface between objects and the IoT.
