MIKOA stands for “Miniaturised self-powered components with reliable wireless communication for automation systems”. This is a funded research project of the Federal German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Within this project, a consortium of institutes and companies has developed autonomously-operating components and systems for the factory and process automation of the future. Key topics are the miniaturization of function modules and the development of an interference-immune and reliable wireless communication system based on new...
