Together with Rhenus, Fraunhofer IML has developed a 5G-compatible sensor for the Internet of Things. Thanks to “iCon”, levels and movements of containers can be transmitted – reliably, cheaply and maintenance-free. The data transmission is completely independent of existing network infrastructures. A wide variety of container management applications are conceivable for the wireless, battery-operated sensor: the developers first tested the sensor on containers for document shredding; however, use of glass and wastepaper containers for municipal disposal is also conceivable in the future. Series production and sales are scheduled for 2020. Then Rhenus wants to bring the first 100 000 smart data containers onto the market.
