RTLS-based digital safety twin for production environments

Future production processes aim for a closer collaboration of men and machine in dynamic work environments without structural restrictions. This blurs the strict separation of work areas and imposes new challenges to maintain functional safety in such environments. Within this project a dynamic safety system for future production systems will be designed and implemented based on a real-time locating system (RTLS) in close cooperation with Siemens AG ¨ Osterreich
