  • Li-Fi meets augmented reality

    Press Release / 12.2.2019

    Developers at Fraunhofer IPMS use visible or infrared light to send and receive data. Transmission takes place without contact, in real time, at very high data rates. Optical communication, Li-Fi (light fidelity) is particularly advantageous in applications in which cables and connectors can interfere, or wireless radio networks such as WLAN or Bluetooth reach performance limits in terms of bandwidth or real-time capability. Data glasses or “augmented reality glasses” fall into this category. Visitors to the 2019 embedded world Exhibition & Conference, being held from 26-28 February in Nuremberg, can experience the possibilities of optical wireless data transmission in an augmented reality scenario at the Fraunhofer IPMS Booth 123 in Hall 3.

  • Radio frequency identification (RFID) has long since arrived in the world of logistics. The AIM-D e.V., an independent association of the global Industry Association for Automated Identification, Data Acquisition and Mobile Data Communication (AIM) responsible for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, will demonstrate the potential of RFID in the context of various material flow processes at the 2019 LogiMAT in a Tracking & Tracing Theater showcase. Fraunhofer IPMS will participate in the showcase, exhibiting how the addition of wireless and battery-less sensors can further enrich Auto-ID processes.
