Efficiency gains through tracking of mobile tools and machines
With RTLS tracking, the exact location or availability of vehicles, expensive tools or mobile machinery on company premises, an airport or a depot can be determined in real-time. From rental cars, pallet trucks or forklifts to transport boxes or technical equipment – often such mobile devices are always parked in other locations and cannot be found when they are needed. One consequence can be that employees spend valuable time searching for them or that more equipment has to be kept on hand than necessary.
Metratec’s RTLS technology can be used to develop efficient, high-precision search systems that can pinpoint the location of each asset. By recording movement profiles, valuable data can also be generated to optimize the use and utilization of vehicles or tools.
This is done by tagging devices with a beacon that sends the position and a unique ID to a matching receiver, which is placed at central locations such as entrances, exits, or crossings.
