Industry 4.0 and Smart Data projects presented in Berlin

This is what has been shown at the #TIC15 at Bitkom hub conference:

Kinexon showed a live-demo of their product – a 3D-localization and motion sensing solution. You can use this e.g. in the health industry to indicate downfalls or other industries to control transportsystems or tool-detecting.

Cassantec creates solutions for the Industry 4.0, to understand the future, based on data. This solution is a „predictive maintenance“-tool to reduce downtimes of machines.

The third team, Teradrill, is building software for IOT-networks to intelligently manage the volume and complexity of network messages using compute resources on remote IOT devices.
