Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

Industrial IoT is the integration and networking of intelligent, mostly wireless sensors and actuators in industrial plants and processes in order to optimize them and equip them with new functionality. We support our customers with our long-standing know-how in the field of “Industrial Internet of Things” through research and development activities in the following service portfolio:

Edge Computing

Edge Computing is the decentralized processing of (sensor) data in a network of sensors and actuators. Embedded systems are used to preprocess data in order to reduce the communication volume. These reduced amounts of data can then be transferred to make learning processes of artificial intelligence faster and more efficient.

Secure Sensors

Wireless communication between the intelligent sensors and actuators must be protected against external attacks by cryptographic algorithms. Secure sensors are used to ensure the confidentiality, availability and integrity of sensor data.

Energy Harvesting

Some industrial environments have no grid-bound energy supply. Through Energy Harvesting, wireless sensors and actuators can be operated independently. The energy from the environment is converted into electrical energy, which can be used to supply energy-saving sensor systems.

Compressed Sensing

Constantly increasing amounts of data pose great challenges for storage and transmission systems. Often signals can no longer be captured completely, which is why the output data must be reconstructed. Compressed sensing methods solve this problem by capturing only as much data as is needed. Therefore, is is possible to accurately restore the original information or at least in a sufficient level for the application.
