Experience at first hand a multitude of diverse live demonstrations from various application domains.

IoT in Public Services /Smart City:


Digital District Administration  

The user scenario „digital district administration“ demonstrates orchestration and deployment of services and related devices. It includes a series of scenarios: intelligent facility management, particulate matter measurement inducing semi-automatic traffic management and road closure, flood detection. Considering the large number of facilities and buildings managed by the public administration IoT-support will positively impact energy footprint and OPEX. The flood detection scenario shows how new sensors and supplementary data sources can be integrated into existing measurement networks for flood detection and hence improve the effectiveness of those systems.

Realtime Data Hub

The Realtime Data Hub demonstrates how sensor data flows are collected over the Internet of Things into an open data platform and can be provisioned in real time. It builds on existing technologies and shows how legacy data portals can be extended with such features.

IoT in Industry

IoT Industry 4.0 Retrofitting and Fog-/Edge-based Process Monitoring

IoT Industry4.0 Retrofitting and Fog-/Edge-based Process Monitoring is of high relevance for optimization of efficiency of production plants and for intelligent maintenance management. By means of retro-fitting (i.e. addition of new sensor technology to older systems, such as MEMS sensors used in the demonstrator), multiprotocol communication with programmable logic controlers (OPC UA-based PLC, Open Platform Communications Unified-Architecture-based Programmable Logic Controler)   

Orchestration of IoT Applications over distributed Fog-/Edge-Networks  

The multitude of IoT sensors and actuators, intelligent M2M/IoT nodes and IoT gateways makes programming and software updates often a time consuming and difficult task. The OpenIoTFog demonstration presents orchestration (dynamic initialization and provisioning) of IoT applications over distributed Fog nodes using an orchestration solution based on Open Baton (www.openbaton.org). The demonstration shows how Fog nodes are registered automatically and become available for hosting applications distributed from a centralized orchestrator (OpenBaton in this case). After orchestration, applications gain access to collected sensor data which are displayed in the GUI.

Horizontal OneM2M Platform for diverse application domains :

This demonstration presents the usage of OpenMTC in various Industrial IoT domains. It includes a.o. a visualization of performance parameters from solar panels installed on the roof-top. The dashboard also visualizes sensor data in scenarios in the area of Smart Cities (environmental sensors) and industry (sonar by Baxter Robor). By means of NodeRed simple feedback loops (flows) can be configured for actuator control (ventilator, rotating beacon).

Remote Control in Robotics by Virtual Reality

An operator remote controls a collaborative robot with VR glasses and controller: a fuel rod is picked up in the distance and put into a container. 

IoT in Health  


Telemedical Assistance in Rehabilitation and Prevention

In the MyRehab demonstration the user does movement exercises in front of the TV set. The current training plan compiled by the doctors are fetched from a server. After the exercise routine result data is transferred to the clinic, and can be accessed by the therapist. Therapist and patient can communicate via video conference. With the mobile system (smartphone, chestbelt, and reha watch) vital and movement data can be visualized in a mobile app. Collected data is also transferred to the rehabilitation server.


IoT in Media Industry


Broadcast Probing System

The broadcast probing system offers a cloud-based continuous monitoring of broadcast networks by probes, inexpensive devices with receiver functionality. Probes can be controlled individually or in groups; by means of secure communication they receive tasks such as scans of frequency bands, selection of certain channels or fine-grained monitoring of transport streams. Monitored broadcast status information are processed and aggregated in real-time by the cloud component of the system. Deviations from target values are detected and trigger corrective actions to support in the optimization of service operation.

Immersive Media: Virtual- & Augmented Reality

On their tour through the Visual Computing Lab visitors get an impression on realtime aspects of IoT with respect to recording and play back of immersive media, virtual reality and augmented reality.

IoT in the Energy Sector


Smart Energy Lab Demonstration Wall  

The demonstration wall of the Smart Energy Lab visualizes interactions between different actors and components in the Smart Grid. It illustrates communication between control center (EMT: external market player) and prosumer (CLS: controllable local system) following the guidelines of BSI (Federal Office for Information Security) and highlights requirements on infrastructure. It presents developments of smart meter gateways. The smart metering component provides hardware and software for interoperability, functionality and performance testing.

enyCLS: secure interconnection of energy systems

The demonstrator presents secure communication in the smart energy system with selected user groups. It comprises metering, open- and closed-loop control of gas, water and electricity according to BSI guidelines. The flexible software solution enyCLS supports the smart meter gateway infrastructure by setting up a secure, bidirectional communication tunnel that is independent of application and device.

IoT in the 5G Sector


5G Ready Trial Platform

Visitors of the 5G testbed environment and the demonstration infrastructure of the 5G Ready trial platform can get a hands-on experience of “massive IoT” and its integration into provider networks. The demonstrations showcase:

  • Simulation of large number of IoT devices actively communicating in the network
  • How to integrate real IoT hardware into provider networks by means of narrow band IoT.
  • Integration into the deployed infrastructure and testing of own components in trial projects

IoT in the Area of Critical Infrastructures


The Safety Lab

Starting point are realistic risk scenarios in Berlin: extrem weather trigger cascades of breakdowns (failures in public transport, chaos a the farmer’s market etc.). The demonstration show room presents how various safety stakeholders (subway control room, fire department control center, IOC) interoperate and how to communicate warnings to the general public (a.o. KATWARN)

The demonstration room hosts a joint presentation in collaboration with IBM, Frequentis, Cisco, Conet, Hörmann and Motionlogic. By means of various partner technologies we can demonstrate in concrete terms and bring up to dsicussion challenges and opportunities from interconnection in sphere of public safety.
