Maintenance-Free Sensor Nodes for the Internet of Things

Press Release / February 08, 2016

Experts at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS in Dresden have been developing compact, customer-customized sensor transponders for diverse industrial applications for years. Because wireless sensors are maintenance-free and battery independent, powered with energy provided solely by the antenna of the reader in the network, RFID-Tags are predestined to replace the bulky sensor nodes of conventional battery-powered systems in industrial sensor networks. Information about this technology can be found at the Fraunhofer IPMS exhibition Stand 583 in Hall 4 of the Embedded World 2016 Exhibition & Conference in Nuremberg from 23.-25. February.
