A jury under chair Prof. Dr. Reimund Neugebauer, president of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, honored the product “omlox – open location standard” as a global and location-technology independent solution. More than 60 industrial companies participated in the omlox project, which provides the first open standard for location services. omlox unites all location services available on the market ‒ including UWB, WLAN, BLE, GPS, and 5G ‒ and transfers these into a uniform coordinate reference system, making them available for internal use on edge platforms or for global use in a cloud. omlox supports for the first time the use of all location technologies, bundling position data to enable targeted optimization of process flows. omlox is an interoperable ecosystem that harmonizes heterogeneous technical infrastructures, making IIoT and Industry 4.0 affordable for SMEs. The ceremony for the HERMES AWARD 2020 took place on 14 July as part of the HANNOVER MESSE Digital Days.
