Hannover Messe Preview 2018

Cognitive sensors in production processes

Press Release / 6.2.2018

As a direct result of Industrie 4.0, industrial production is becoming increasingly customized. And industry’s long-term goal is batch size one. In practice, however, digitalization still frequently means individual solutions that are only partially connected or not connected at all. As a consequence, neither subsequent processes nor advance planning can benefit from data recorded. To facilitate the linking up of production processes, the exchange of application-specific data and the optimization of procedures, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Nuremberg is working on developing identification, localization and communication technologies for cognitive sensors and systems. At the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6, and at the Hannover Messe itself from April 23 to 27, 2018, the researchers will be demonstrating various solutions and data-driven applications in an engine assembly process (Hall 2, Booth C22).
