  • Fraunhofer IPMS will present a new, RFID-based pick-by-light application scenario for efficient and secure picking at LogiMAT 2017. Located in Dresden, the Fraunhofer IPMS research institute has developed an intelligent storage bin that can be identified and controlled by RFID technology which operates without needing its own power supply. In addition, a weighing sensor integrated into the bottom of the bin automatically records any material removal and provides notification for refilling.

  • Operating cable-connected or battery-powered measurement systems in hard-to-reach installation locations and challenging environments often poses safety concerns, is too complex or downright impossible. Radio frequency identification (RFID) sensors make the wireless, maintenance-free measurement of temperature and other physical parameters in such situations possible. At this year's Embedded World Exhibition and Conference to be held in Nuremberg, Germany from 14.-16. March, developers from Fraunhofer IPMS Dresden will present a flexible, multi-tag RFID sensors system concept which has also been tested in metal environments.
