The HERMES AWARD, the international technology prize, is presented annually during HANNOVER MESSE. It is aimed at all companies and institutions exhibiting at HANNOVER MESSE and honors outstanding products and innovative solutions.
The nominated omlox project is the first open standard for location services. This standard combines all location services available on the market, such as UWB, WLAN, BLE, GPS, and 5G. These are transferred to a uniform coordinate reference system and can be made available for internal use on edge platforms or for global use in a cloud. With omlox, for the first time information from all location technologies can be used. With this bundled position data, process flows can be optimized in a targeted manner. The omlox standard creates an interoperable ecosystem that harmonizes heterogeneous technical infrastructures, making IIoT and Industry 4.0 accessible for SMEs.
