How RTLS Transforms the Automotive Industry

This article emphasizes the transformative role of digital technologies, especially RFID and RTLS, in the automotive industry's production processes. These technologies address the critical challenges of reducing manual processes and enhancing automation. RFID and RTLS solutions offer real-time tracking, transparency, and accuracy in managing materials and vehicles, leading to significant improvements in efficiency and productivity.

The Role of RTLS in Reducing Carbon Footprint

In today's rapidly evolving industrial landscape, companies face increasing pressure to enhance operational efficiency, ensure safety, and adhere to stringent environmental regulations. Here’s why companies need RTLS and IoT technologies and how these innovations contribute to sustainability and compliance with environmental mandates.

RTLS solutions in warehouse and supply chain

In recent times, warehouse and supply chain management has become increasingly complex and fast-paced. As a result, businesses are looking to manage and analyze real-time data from various systems efficiently. To achieve this goal, the integration of artificial intelligence using RTLS-based technology has made operations faster, more efficient, and predictable.

The advanced features of the system not only help to reduce workplace accidents but also improve operational efficiency. Improved productivity, reduced downtime, and a safer working environment benefit the industry.

RTLS For Oil & Gas Industry

RTLS technology enhances safety and efficiency in the oil & gas industry. It enables real-time location tracking, monitoring of hazardous zones, and efficient equipment management. EagleEye, developed by Cisco and Wipelot, is a robust RTLS solution for challenging industrial conditions, optimizing safety in the oil & gas industry.

Real-time container and fleet tracking in ports

Container port terminals that are expanding are versatile facilities with extensive connections to road and rail networks and are considered mega-scale infrastructure. These massive structures serve a variety of functions, the most common of which are container storage and shipment. This continuous growth and complexity have resulted in the need for real-time container tracking in ports with millions of tons of cargo handling capacity.

Semi-finished product and stock tracking with RTLS

The real-time semi-finished product tracking system allows you to track all movements of every product, every vehicle, and every person in the facility using RFID technology. This increases efficiency and prevents time losses.

Why do companies need Smart Warehouse Technology?

The warehouses had always been a place where the operation was managed manually for a long time, could not meet the requirements of the era, and the safety measures were insufficient. Until the revolution of industry 4.0. This new era brought an automated workforce to manufacturing, warehouse and distribution centres. Nowadays, these digital transformations into the core business processes within a modern supply chain have become one of the essential factors for a company.

Importance of Traffic Management & Signalization in Mining

Wipelot Signalization System has an expandable infrastructure. An increasing number of vehicles or tunnels. The system can be easily expanded to kilometres and hundreds of vehicles without loss of performance if the number of vehicles or tunnels increases. In addition, thanks to the closed-circle operation feature, it is not affected by general system failures and interruptions.

Lone Worker Safety Solutions in Industry

Whether in an office or a large production facility, safety comes first in workplaces. Especially in industrial production areas, mines, construction sites, industrial personnel should be wary of their own as well as their colleagues’ safety above all else. In the industrial sector, there is a huge portion of employees who have to work alone due to their nature of their work.

Forklift Safety & Collision Avoidance System

In order to achieve the highest possible occupational safety in all work areas of forklifts, Wipelot has developed Safezone product range, a complete collision and warning system, using the UWB technology. Since each forklift operation environment is unique, Safezone family was designed as a solution that meets all requirements, with maximum flexibility that considers the operation environment, personnel and equipment structures.

How RFID Is Changing Work Safety Practices?

RFID is a member of the technology group called Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC). Although the history of its use dates back to the World War Two, the first modern RFID patent was granted in 1973. Its intended use is basically recognizing objects, collecting data about the objects, and sharing this data with the relevant software systems.

What is RFID technology and how does it work?

RFID, also known as Radio Frequency Identification, is an automatic tracking system composed of a silicon chip and a reader that generates wireless communication. RFID tags may be programmed to receive, record and forward Electronic Product Code (EPC) like object information. Through RFID processes, digital data is encoded into smart labels or tags to be captured by radio wave readers. To better grasp this concept, imagine data from a tag being barcoded by a device to be later used in a database; yet, instead of a barcode tracking software RFID tags can capture data even if the product or object is out of sight.

Real-time Operations in 2021

Real time operating systems are on the fast lane to becoming the norm in industrial and manufacturing industries, as well as all sectors that are increasingly implementing cloud systems. RTOS diverges from different operating systems that concern computing in terms of its specific response time to various external circumstances. While the standard operating system offers a soft real-time response to instances, RTOS is known to ensure a deterministic and swift reaction that can guarantee efficient completion of tasks.

Why is IoT the Future of Industrial Functioning?

As the digital revolution takes over the entire globe, the Internet of Things, also known as IoT, became a hot topic for all sectors; indeed, what was primarily a foreign subject to all professionals is now considered the head of an entire domain of functionalities, the most primary one being the Industrial Internet of Things, or IIoT. Approximately half of the global IoT spending is conducted on industry related utilities, transportation purposes and discrete manufacturing. IIoT typically refers to the industrial application of devices such as instrumentation and connected sensors to different types of machinery and processes. As the global industrial IoT market rises above 900 billion dollars, more and more companies turn to IoT solutions for business initiatives or enhancing and optimizing their operations.

Asset Identification Technology with RFID

Asset identification involves management of a variety of movable or fixed asset categories, making it essential to integrate a comprehensive tracking system. Workplace safety softwares and solutions capitalize heavily on asset identification and tracking systems; this is because asset identification constitutes a critical step for a business to track its essential equipment. To put simply, if your business assets are incorrectly labeled, or if they undergo duplicate labeling, this creates multiple risk avenues. These risks include compliance complications, minimizing prospects for preventive maintenance, as well as compromising your assets’ safety in general. This makes it imperative for your business to ensure asset identification best practices both for physical assets as well as human assets.

What is RTLS: Real Time Locating Systems?

Real Time Location Systems, also referred to as RTLS, allow for modern technology to determine the location of an item or person in real time. RTLS doesn’t necessarily have to refer to one piece of technology, but is rather an initiative that can be accomplished through the integration of various systems. It is commonly used for tracking and managing assets in industrial settings. The data collected by RTLS systems can be utilized for many different purposes such as creating timestamps for when an asset moves into a certain area. Another application could be about granular visibility that requires constant updates. RTLS solutions generally capitalize on locating, tracking and managing assets, people and inventories so that companies are better equipped to make educated decisions on the data they have collected and optimize their operations while enhancing workplace safety.
