HiMoNN provides a flexible and secure broadband communications solution that is automatically set up and immediately available between vehicles on the spot. With this - different client devices as well as sensors can communicate in real time. Additionally, HiMoNN has a GPS functionality to visualize the current position of the HiMoNN devices in a monitoring display. Transmissions to other networks are possible via mobile, satellite, directional radio or terrestrial networks. This allows for example the direct transmissions of current production and monitoring data of a distant system to the company’s control centre.
HiMoNN is based on ad-hoc networking technology and thus does not require any stationary communications infrastructure. The ability of each communication node simultaneously to act as a relay increases the possible distances between senders and receivers and permits establishing a communications network over several square kilometres. This way the network can be spread to locations that are not covered by an existing communications infrastructure, as may be necessary with operations in production or storage facilities, where steel and concrete prevent connection to external radio communications networks.
