The family-owned company had previously picked up the prize in 2006 for an radio frequency identification (RFID) solution. The Hermes prize is awarded by the Deutsche Messe. The presentation took place as part of the festive opening ceremony of the exhibition on Sunday in the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and U.S. President Barack Obama. The prize was presented by Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka, Minister of Education and Research.

The Harting MICA is an open and modular platform that is designed to function as a core component consisting of embedded hardware and software for Industrie 4.0. The MICA provides existing machinery and systems with intelligence, making it possible to migrate existing factories towards smart factories. This, in turn, is designed to enable numerous small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to enter the world of Industrie 4.0.
