Localization of objects (material, tools, machine parts) is essential in digital production. Fraunhofer IOSB-INA is testing localization solutions at SmartFactoryOWL and the 5G application centerestablished there. Now, a new and very special interoperable and open localization solution called omlox has been successfully installed in SmartFactoryOWL. omlox is an open real-time localization standard which enables the interoperability of different localization technologies & services. A cross-manufacturer provision of localization services thus becomes possible.
IOSB-INA contributes to the standardization and further development of omlox in the omlox working groups Test and Use-Cases.
