Positioning & Navigation Solutions for Logistics Applications
In this area, the industrial applications range from forklift tracking for precise and automated tracking of goods and pallets, to the positioning of mobile operating terminals in manufacturing environments.
In the logistics industry, spoilage, delays or loss of goods create inefficiencies and lead to higher costs. Offsetting these issues requires amassing all of the information needed to monitor and control the logistics flows in real-time. The gaps between the physical and information worlds can be filled by deploying active intelligent objects and a combination of wireless technologies. In addition, timely parts replacement is a vital factor that contributes to production efficiency since machinery and vehicles have to be maintained and available around-the-clock.
