iDisplay & CPS®Mobile: Systems network

A study by Würth Industrie Service

From the way we communicate and obtain information to the way we shop – digitisation is changing society, politics and the economy.

Connected systems – Digital. Real. Transparent.

In cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute, Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML, the iDISPLAY and the app CPS®MOBILE were developed.


This technology involves not only a multifunctional, digital label system for racks, but also an app that provides a mobile management system for a transparent exchange of data and information.

How can the virtual world and real world be connected?

The previous rack label system can now be replaced by the new iDISPLAY labeling system. When attached to a rack rail (patent pending), the iDISPLAY detects its position and transmits this information to the Würth Industrie Service goods management system. The iDISPLAY detects any following changes in position and also knows whether it has been removed completely. It then reports this information back to the app. This continuous comparison of position data allows the rack plan to be updated automatically and displayed visually. Manual intervention is no longer necessary. A rack plan can also be created in an inverse process at the storage location itself. To do this, the bins are first placed in the rack on-site in accordance with the customer's requirements. The iDISPLAY is then assigned to the bins at random; this means that the iDISPLAY is attached to the rack and then linked with the bin data. Using this data, a virtual rack can be created automatically via the CPS®MOBILE app. CPS®MOBILE provides an additional management system and enables a transparent exchange of data and information. It gives information about the location and status of the bins.

They are the first solutions to not only enable exchange from the digital to the real world, but also communication from the real world to the digital world.

They deliver absolute transparency. From a desktop, tablet or smartphone. Mobile, anywhere, at any time.
