Project Timeline 6-8 months. First prototype with limited functionality after 3-5 months.

Start Date: 28.03.2019

Status: Running

Research initiated on 28.03.2019 by :

  • Arvato :
    • Dr.-Ing.Sebastian Verhoeven Vice President STOK Europe
    • Alexander Jeske Head of Innovation Hightech & Entertainment - Arvato SCM Solutions
  • TUL :
    • Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bernd Noche
    • M. Sc. Fuyin Wei
    • M. Sc. Emre Koç
    • M. Sc.Dennis Belsky

Research requirements:

  • RFID/NFC guided smart shelf system with power autonomy for at least 1 month. Minimum status update frequency 1 time per hour. Mobile connectivity.
  • RFID/NFC guided smart trolley for medical equipment. Battery powered 1 Month autonomy. Status update on open /close and 1 time per hour. Mobile network support.
  • Middle Price segment. Very high accuracy.

Research Workflow
