Clever monitoring – wireless monitoring for safety critical industrial systems

Press Release / 2.11.2016

Experts at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) in Dresden have developed a flexible system concept using radio frequency identification (RFID) sensors to monitor machines in industrial environments. Through continuous wireless and battery-free measurement of temperature and other physical parameters as well as an intelligent analysis of sensor data, it becomes possible to detect failure risks early and optimize maintenance times.
