Location-aware sensors are built on established and time-proven tag-ready smart RF modules – nanotron’s swarm bee product family – utilizing a common API. Ready-made anchors allow for easy to install scalable IoT infrastructure. The powerful set of available deployment and productivity tools enables customers to smoothly and easily scale up to increase the number of tracked objects and the size of the monitored area. Offering a per-node coverage range of up to 500 meters, the solution tracks objects with an accuracy down to 10 cm. It leverages the advantages of concurrent data communication, ranging and tracking and provides an extremely power-efficient approach for extended battery life of mobile devices.
Customers can start with straightforward functions such as automatic collision warning and real-time tracking. More sophisticated and powerful sensing and location-awareness capabilities can be added to the existing deployment right away or at an appropriate time in the future. Step-by-step implementation simplifies the deployment process as well as software integration thus minimizing time to market.
"Nanotron leverages its field-proven location-aware IIoT platform to enable continuous in-depth assessment, optimization and process restructuring," said Albers. "Sensor and location data analytics brings safety and productivity to an entirely new level, reliably 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
