Research on novel methods and technologies to enhance sensor-actuator systems to autonomous Industry 4.0 components
One key to unlock many Industry 4.0 applications is to be found in smart, autonomous sensor-actuator systems. In the Green-ISAS project, a range of broadly applicable solutions have been developed.
The basic modules have been yoked together to achieve highly efficient design, construction, testing and operation of new systems. To facilitate future development of useful application-specific technological solutions, Green-ISAS worked on design and test methods and the implementation of modular hardware and software components.
In new combinations, such systems with the characteristics of independent intelligence, networking capacity and energy autonomy have been set up and validated in two demonstrators.
Results obtained in Green-ISAS
- Energy-efficient processing of time-coded sensor signals
- Characterisation schemes for ULP (ultra-low-power) circuits
- Ultra-low-power circuits for passive long-range UHF-RFID frontends
- Design methodology for application-specific electromagnetic micro-energy harvesters
- Adaptive energy management components for self-powered sensor-actuator systems
- Concepts for communications conforming to Industry 4.0 in systems with very limited resources
An overview of all results and two specialist articles can be found in the 2018 Annual Report.

“From my point of view, the numerous outcomes, many of them already validated by demonstrators, speak for themselves. These wireless solutions with their energy self-sufficiency are blazing the trail for quick, cheap and easy retrofitting. I envisage their use not only in manufacturing processes but in other areas such as transport and logistics.”
