10H40 – 11H00 : Invited paper
Smart Sensing Devices for Logistics Application”

Mojtaba Masoudinejad, Aswin Karthik Ramachandran Venkatapathy, Jan Emmerich, and Andreas Riesner

TU Dortmund University, Dortmund, Germany

Abstact : This paper provides an abstract view of the Industry 4.0 as the next industrial revolution. Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) as smart connected solutions are considered to be the key answer to the needs of future industry. Effects of this revolution on the logistics sector is analyzed and integration of CPS in this field is presented. To evaluate the quality of CPS solutions in the field of logistics, PhyNetLab and its subcomponents are presented as a physical testbed for testing CPS nodes, structural designs, communication platform and protocols in addition to the energy challenges for materials handling and warehousing application. inBin and P-ink as two CPS solutions are reviewed in the context of the order-picking. Also, iCon as an alternative outdoor asset tracking solution is presented.

Abstract : Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are widely employed today in real world applications. Smart homes and smart cities are the most promising application currently exploiting WSN. Smart lighting with WSN in particular is promising to achieve a low cost, wireless, easily installed, adaptable system to automatically adjust the light intensity of LED panels, with the aim of saving energy and maintaining user satisfaction. However, lifetime and power consumption of wireless devices are still the most critical challenge that limits the success of this technology. This issue is especially critical when wireless sensor nodes are powered by limited energy storage devices. In this work we present the design and development of a highly efficient wireless system targeting indoor control of lights using ultra low power wake up radio technology. Thanks to the wake up radio the energy efficiency of the communication is improved and this significantly increases the lifetime of the solution. We design the sensor and control devices for a smart light controlling system that can be retrofitted and maintain a long lifetime even when supplied by batteries. Measurements of current and power consumption of both the designed system confirm the ultra-low power of the nodes and the benefits to use the energy efficient power communication implemented with the wake up radio

Abstract : As a consequence of the growing globalization transports which need a safe handling are increasing. Therefor this paper introduces an innovative transport and condition monitoring system based on a mobile embedded sensor platform. The platform is equipped with a variety of sensors needed to extensively monitor a transport and could be attached directly to the transported good. The included microcontroller processes all relevant data served by the sensors in a very power efficient manner. Furthermore, it provides possible violations of previously given thresholds through a standardized Near Field Communication (NFC) interface to the user. Since falls are one major cause of damages while transportation the presented system is the first one that not only detects every fall but also analyses the falling height and other parameters of the fall event in real-time on the platform. The whole system was tested in different experiments where all critical situations and in particular all fall situations have been detected correctly.

Abstact : Ensuring sustainable urban mobility is based on the rational management of transportation system. This involves the infrastructure development and design of vehicles equipped with intelligent modules, which provide the control ability. The widespread use of environmentally friendly bicycles is constrained by a number of reasons. One of them is the absence of models designed for physically untrained people. This paper proposes the concept of the smart-bike control system, which was developed to help cyclist in the situations, when the values of his/ her physical condition as well as parameters of environment are critical. Prototypes of the proposed system were tested in the laboratory environment.
