Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 282)


The paper is giving a brief overview on the Saxony-Anhalt Galileo Test Bed as an integrated environment of several real labs and test beds for research and development in the fields of logistics and transportation. As the Fraunhofer IFF is one partner of the test bed consortium, specific research topics in the application field of telematics and logistics are addressed as well. These developments are all closely connected to industrial application as the Saxony-Anhalt Galileo Test Bed offers the platform for testing the technical integration of, for instance, video- and radio-based identification and localization systems into logistics process environments.
