Indoor Navigation & Tracking in Industrial Areas
A Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) provides location-relevant data for operators, making the logistics process faster and smoother. An RTLS can not only help with productivity enhancement, but also with real-time decision support and the identification of hidden costs.
Features for Industrial Areas
infsoft provides you with solutions for the monitoring of mobile goods. Whether it is pallets, forklifts, robots or equipment inside complex industrial areas – the tracking solution from infsoft detects all required goods and allows for seamless tracking. One possible application scenario is tracking pallets along the supply chain in order to monitor the whole process including incoming and outgoing goods, amount, delivery date as well as actions at the point of sale. All data can be accessed at any time via a web-based portal or a standalone app and can also be integrated into existing ERP systems.
infsoft’s indoor tracking solutions offer an operations control system for plant security
, which sends the positions of staff and objects to the control center in real time. Security services staff who is located in the vicinity of certain events can be directly assigned to patrols. An alert function notifies the control center as soon as a security-relevant area is entered by a non-authorized person. Thanks to the analysis of movement profiles
inside and outside the building, detailed data is available that can be used to undertake refinements to the security concept. Should goods, equipment and vehicles leave a certain area without permission, a warning mechanism can be triggered via geofencing
(theft protection). Furthermore, user-specific areas can also be created with individual access authorization.
Examples of Use:
The existing technical infrastructure can directly be used in many cases. Depending on the requirement, the operator choses a client-based
(app is necessary, positioning via Wi-Fi
, Bluetooth beacons
and sensor fusion, including a back channel) or a server-based solution
(no app required; positioning via infsoft Locator Nodes
; detection of Wi-Fi devices, Bluetooth beacons, Ultra-wideband or RFID modules; no back channel available). High-precision solutions with low latencies can be implemented on the basis of Ultra-wideband (UWB)
. The use of RFID
is suitable for a point-specific object identification with high unit numbers.
Indoor navigation software by infsoft can be implemented in existing applications, websites and hospital information systems. The accuracy is – depending on the technical realization – up to ten centimeters or less.
