The Industrial Radio Lab Germany (IRLG) engages in research and development of current and future wireless technologies in industry. The lab creates innovations, supports companies, and collaborates with actors in economy and politics to ensure knowledge transfer towards a digital society. The IRLG comprises four distributed research and development labs that involve small and medium-sized enterprises through regional networking. The regional labs (IRLs) provide resources for joint research to collaborating partners. This allows companies the development of demonstrators based on wireless communication. Additionally, each lab has its own research topic. It should be noted that the IRLG operates independently and in the interest of the companies without pursuing own economic interests.
