In the topics of AutoID, we are currently working on five research projects: smaRTI, DyCoNet, IOT-A, RACE network RFID and LokLog. In the center of all activities, there is the vision of the »Internet of Things«. This idea is mainly driven by our institue in charge for the whole Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
The developement and implementation of intelligent load units in logistical processes, the establishment of universal software structures in the Internet of Things and the localisation of objects with the help of passive transponders are only a few examples.
Additional information about our research concerning AutoID technologies can be found on the Homepage of the
