No Industry 4.0 without RFID and Sensors

Press Release / 10.4.2018

Cost reductions resulting from transparent supply chains, workpiece-controlled production lines or preventive maintenance measures would not be possible without the interaction of identification methods, sensors, software, and secure data storage concepts. Fraunhofer IPMS will demonstrate a system made up of various wireless RFID sensors, specially-developed RFID OPC UA middleware and a tamper-proof data storage concept based on blockchain technology at this year's Hannover Messe. Visitors to the world's largest trade show for industrial technology can view the Fraunhofer IPMS system demonstration at the OPC Foundation booth from 23-27 April.
