ZIGPOS GmbH is an innovative company located in Dresden the state capital of Saxony (GERMANY), exploring wireless sensor networks for diverse internet of thing applications base M2M standard. ZIGPOS products are Sensor Radio Module, Gateway with multiple radio interface, database as well as location and positioning solutions. The products are optimized based on energy efficiency, small form factor, complexity and interface design depending on customer’s requirements. Due to its modular approach, its well-designed user interfaces and easy handling, the dedicated ZIGPOS systems solutions can be applied in a variety of application areas. For example the non-destructive monitoring and controlling of climate in historical buildings can be realized with ZIGPOS technology without installing heavy cables or disturbing any infrastructure. Another example is the ZIGPOS system being suitable for installation in medical facilities to monitor environmental conditions and to reduce the spread of resistant bacteria. ZIGPOS data communication systems are also capable of providing real-time precise positioning of the modules indoors and outdoors, to be used in location and tracking of objects and persons for applications in logistics, public places, e-ticketing and more.


Brief description of the role within the project

ZIGPOS main roles are to provide the indoor/outdoor localization technologies based on 802.15.4/ ZigBee wireless communication, integration of ZIGPOS energy efficient real time location system (eeRTLS) technology with UNCAP BOX ensuring conversion to interoperable standards from OGC. Further contribution is expected in terms of contribution to marketing and exploitation of the final solutions that will be delivered by UNCAP.

How the profile matches with the tasks assigned and previous experience in relevant projects

ZIGPOS GmbH has a strong experience in wireless sensor network, real time indoor and outdoors ranging, positioning and localization, processing and scalable database management technologies includes security and privacy by design. ZIGPIS is currently member of two Large Integrated project projects such as i-locate, iCore and Butler. In iCore, ZIGPOS gained experience in the concept of virtualization technologies and their implementation in smart home application context. In Butler, ZIGPOS will perform field trials in smart city application environment and validate ZIGPOS position context technologies. ZIGPOS have strong experience on overall system integration, design and implementation. In addition ZIGPOS also developed several applications such e-health, building automation, transportation, smart grid, smart metering and ambient assisted living. ZIGPOS GmbH also offers experience on HW/SW design and production, protocol specification and implementation, user interface development and customized application design. ZIGPOS also strongly involved in ETSI M2M standardization.
