New IoT components of the trades are not evaluated individually but are interconnected across all trades and an interoperability is established. This interconnection of IoT components from different trades makes a modern building intelligent and enables revolutionary and innovative use cases.
The smart building platform ensures in a live operation the intended function of new building technology. In addition, this test field offers the opportunity of quickly and cost-effectively identifying and solving problems that can arise despite the standardization of interfaces and protocols. This prevents exorbitant costs due to malfunctions during the overall commissioning of not sufficiently tested technology (e.g. BER Airport). A similar demonstrator has already been operated in the smart logistics cluster on the RWTH Aachen Campus until Winter 2019 for the Cube Berlin, the “most modern office building in Europe”.
It serves the enrollees of the smart logistics cluster as a living lab and enables the testing and implementation of innovative use cases in the field of production and building management of manufacturing companies.
With the motto “Invent the Future of Services” the FIR and the centers in the smart logistics cluster are developing innovative services together with partners from the industry in the service science innovation lab. The process from the service idea to the market-ready service is supported and accelerated by innovative methods and tools by making the resulting services tangible and experienceable through various media.
The activities in the smart systems innovation lab are aimed to research, optimize, and further develop the provision of information through smart systems. In addition to the technical examination of smart systems, the focus is on the application context. Smart systems can support the implementation of new, cyber approaches in production and logistics and enable the development of new integrated services.
In the ERP Innovation Lab, research is conducted into how different ERP systems and different forms of organization can be interconnected and which technologies and standards are required to achieve an optimal exchange of information.
All types of event areas are consolidated in the Congress center. On one hand, you can use the conference and meeting rooms for your events, on the other hand the large atrium of the cluster enables you to hold in-house exhibitions with up to 30 stands.
In order to facilitate intensive and log-term on-site cooperation, retable partner offices are available for you. Right next to the innovation labs and the event spaces, we offer you open, bright areas with modern equipment.
