Fraunhofer Factory’s smart entrance


Fraunhofer IFF






Fraunhofer is a German manufacturing company, constructing a net-zero factory in Magdeburg. Energy Floors built a smart energy floor at the entrance to the building which captures data and solar energy.

The factory showcases the ability to have integrated, sustainable factories across Germany. It will also be used as a research laboratory for Fraunhofer personnel.

Sensors and data sharing are an important part of the vision. Therefore, installing flooring modules that generate both energy and data and integrates these into the smart ecosystem in the factory is imperative.

Alongside the smart entrance floor, the net-zero factory  uses multiple systems that generate clean energy. Biomass, PV panels on the roof, passive heating and cooling of the building.
