Description

The Laboratory for Sensors and Identification Systems offers work stations and different servers to realise student projects.

To realise projects for mobile applications, there are different mobile devices available (iPads, iPhones, Nokia-devices, ...). They are used for geo-visualisations, for 3D-city-models in navigation systems, or for a mobile carfinder for car2go (Daimler AG) that is able to locate available cars outdoor (using GPS) as well as indoor using other sensors like gyroscopes and acceleration sensors.

Additionally an indoor-navigation system is installed, which can identify objects and track them in 3D with active RFID technology. As an example a forklift can be controlled in a stockroom. A parcel, which should be forwarded, can provide information about the destination via an attached passive RFID-tag. A reading device can check if the parcel was packed in the right vehicle. The laboratory is equipped with hardware like RFID-tags and RFID-readers as well as with a software platform to manage RFID-tag-linked objects and reading devices with their reading event.

Software

  • Tagpilot: Identify objects automatically, interface between virtual reality in ERP-systems and the real world
  • Ubisense: Realtime positioning system


Hardware

  • Tablets: Apple IPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom, etc.
  • Miscellaneous NFC and RFID starter kits
  • Miscellaneous RFID and Barcode reading- and writing equipment
  • Mobile phones (Apple, Nokia, Samsung, ...)
  • GPS Receivers (Garmin eTrex, Compaq, Asus, ...)
