Technology overview


The Motion-Mining® Technology

We, MotionMiners GmbH, are a spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics and have developed the Motion Mining® technology. In this process, mobile sensors (wearables) and micro radio transmitters (beacons) are used to record manual work processes as they are executed. From the process data, work steps are reconstructed automatically, with the help of machine learning algorithms, and made available for further analysis.

These movements form the basis of a data analysis to analyze the manual work processes in terms of efficiency and ergonomics. In this way, optimization and savings potentials can be uncovered very easily and quickly.



Which offer suits you?

There are several ways to use Motion Mining® technology for your site. On the one hand, you can fully rely on the experience of our process engineers within the scope of our consulting project and look specifically at processes that have not been sufficiently analyzed so far. The combination of comprehensive evaluations by our process engineers and Motion Mining® Technology provides you with concrete optimization potentials and answers to your individual process questions.

On the other hand, Motion-Mining® Technology is available to you as a license package consisting of hardware and software components for your own use. Your employees will be trained in the basics of the technology and will subsequently be able to independently perform Motion-Mining® process analyses in your company, evaluate data and derive optimization potentials.


Satisfied industrial customers


From more than 327 recorded data hours, concrete, quantified weak points in the processes, unnecessary waiting and search times and suggestions for improving the ergonomic design of work processes and equipment were identified.

Through our partner META, we were able to generate impressive optimisation potential in terms of efficiency and ergonomics with the start-up MotionMiners.

The journey analysis carried out by MotionMiners with over 1000 hours of data is an excellent basis for the optimisation and digitalisation of our warehouse processes. We also see a lot of potential for new projects in the future in the AI-supported process analysis by MotionMiners.

We are very satisfied with the work of MotionMiners. With their solutions, we succeeded in clearly visualising suspected process gaps and waste. Especially the applicability without connection to the existing IT structure has greatly simplified the implementation of the project for us.

Through a project carried out with "MotionMiners" in our logistics division, we were able to collect internal data that would not have been possible without this methodology. Aspects that are difficult to evaluate in monetary terms, such as ergonomic working conditions, could be substantiated and provided great added value for our employees.

Through the MotionMiners project in our ECOM logistics centre, weak points in the storage area could be identified and efficiency significantly increased. In the course of this, various order picking trolleys were compared in terms of ergonomics and the most ergonomically sensible order picking trolley was determined.
