OWICELLS

Optical WIreless networks for flexible car manufacturing CELLS

Funding organization: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

Duration: December 2014 - April 2018

The goal of the project OWICELLS is to realize more flexible manufacturing cells in the area of automotive engineering by using fast optical wireless technologies as an alternative to wired fieldbuses and common radio solutions.

In the OWICELLS project, Fraunhofer HHI develops new wireless technologies based on data transmission by light, together with partners from automotive, lighting and automation industry. Besides the development of hard- and software, the OWC technology is tested in real life production conditions.
