The digitization of production lines requires new and flexible communication networks. However, wireless solutions have not yet met the requirements for real-time communication and data transmission is still cable based. Therefore, Fraunhofer IPMS has developed the Grathus® system. It allows real-time wireless communication based on Fraunhofer IPMS Li-Fi technology. Due to the necessary line-of-sight connection, LiFi offers significantly higher data security than conventional wireless network accesses. The Grathus® system combines the advantages of cable based communication infrastructure with the flexibility and low installation effort of wireless data transmission.
