The Internet of Things (IoT) gateway that has been developed by Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS for Tekon Electronics (Bresimar Automação SA) will be exhibited in Hannover Messe. The world's leading industrial show occurs from 24th to 28th of April and the Tekon booth can be found at Hall 8, stand A20.

The gateway will be part of a new line of differentiating products for industrial sensorization and instrumentation. These products will make use of emerging technologies that represent the technological state of art for sensorization, wireless communications and cloud computing.

Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS is in charge of the design and development of an industrial gateway for the storing, forwarding and visualization of data from the wireless sensors. This gateway has the possibility to integrate new hardware communication modules connected through an expansion bus and respective support for the main non-proprietary industrial communication protocols. Also, the gateway will provide an interface for integration with third-party systems (RESTful API), a web-based portal and integration with cloud-based IoT platforms.

The project is still ongoing and the gateway is still in a prototype version but ready for demonstration.
