NXP IoT Truck
When you walk through the streets these days you might see a whacky vehicle driving around. Then you might ask if people coming from the future lost their way and hit our roads. At this point we can reassure you. The futuristic truck is underway on behalf of a special mission: The NXP IoT Truck Smarter World Tour. An IoT lab on wheels The Dutch semiconductor manufacturer NXP, partner of EBV Elektronik, has stuffed this special vehicle with plenty of technology and visual material to explain the fascinating and diverseRead More
It is time to wake up! The European and especially the German high-tech industries are showing vital growth and the general outlook for the future is optimistic. However we need to wake up quickly as over the past years it seemed like we are singing ourselves a good night song about Industry 4.0 and the incredible opportunities and benefits it will bring to our production lines. It is nice to imagine what we could achieve with industrial IoT technology – but we did not really do much so far! CurrentlyRead More

Industry 4.0 As Easy As Lego With The STM32 ODE

For engineering the 21st century has gone pretty well so far. From the rise of smartphones, over mobile internet and the IoT to renewable energy technology there have been many challenges and opportunities which have fuelled the need for inventions and new ideas. Newly born trends like the maker movement are not only producing a flood of creative applications but help the technology industries to get access to young professionals which are motivated to take on the challenges of tomorrow. Makers highly profit from modern development platforms which help themRead More
Right now we are experiencing the fourth industrial revolution. The introduction of the Internet along with sophisticated semiconductor technology and precise and affordable sensors paved the way for the IoT and big data which are fuelling a radical change often referred to as “Industry 4.0”. We reached a turning point and in order to stay successful we need to predict the future for industrial IoT (IIoT) applications as accurately as possible. Surprisingly when it comes to digitalisation we can learn a lot from the music industry which has already goneRead More
Fraunhofer’s Technology Network “it’s OWL” Will Give You An Industry 4.0 Boost Just recently we shared our vision on the incredible advantages of Industry 4.0, Smart Services and the impressive progress of Fraunhofer’s technology network it’s OWL together with Miele. Now there are even more good news! The technology network it’s OWL which has the goal to help small and mid-sized businesses to implement and optimise industrial IoT technology (or in other words Industry 4.0 technology) into their production processes faster is part of one of the German competence centresRead More
Industry 4.0 is the next big thing. The smart connection of production sites and thus the intelligent monitoring of products from design over manufacturing to delivery to the customer allows to gain completely new and highly valuable insights on production and design processes. Industrial IoT (IIoT) technology which enables the Industry 4.0 can be complex and the implementation can take a lot of effort – however it holds great benefits even for smaller businesses. In order to help mid-sized and small businesses to understand the available solutions and learn how toRead More
Wireless technology and sophisticated low power semiconductor products have enabled the Internet of Things (IoT) for consumer electronics – now it is time to implement similar solutions into industrial applications. The next few years are crucial for modern companies in order to stay efficient and to optimise their workflows and production processes. Wireless connectivity solutions for the industrial IoT (IIoT, often referred to as Industry 4.0) have to be reliable, cost-efficient and secure. This also applies to consumer applications but for industrial applications the challenge of delivering the necessary levelRead More
The internet of things (IoT) – everyday we read about it, we think about it and we use it – so why should you take the time for another text about the IoT? Because we have no intention of hyping it or declaring it as something entirely new. We want to share our own vision to help you to get the most out of your IoT applications.  For years EBV has helped it’s customers to develop highly advanced applications and systems. In order to ensure the best support for ourRead More
A while ago we reported about opportunities and challenges of the Industrial IoT or in other words Industry 4.0. We also reported about the high involvement of the Fraunhofer Society in current research projects aiming at the acceleration and realisation of new industrial concepts. Now the Fraunhofer Application Center Industrial Automation (IOSB-INA) and the Miele & Cie. KG have cooperated in order to optimise the production of dishwashers – with great results. The first workstation on the new pre-assembly line at Miele’s Bielefeld plant, producing chambers for commercial dishwashers andRead More
Let’s stress the most used phrase these days: Internet of Things. You want to be truly innovative? Well, then instead it might be time to talk about the “Internet of Services” – or in other words “smart services”. Many companies will state that they aim to be first adopters of Industry 4.0 technology (referring to the inter-connectivity of machines and whole production sites) to stay innovative. However this is just one step of many in order to stay successful. The adoption of data-based services is the next big challenge that has to be tackled. TheseRead More
