Due to high fluctuation and low training times in the industry, drivers of route trains and forklifts repeatedly make navigation errors. As a result, the agreed driving times cannot be adhered to, which is associated with high costs. With the help of a driver support for route trains and forklifts a so called "route train navigation" based on the awiloc® localization can enable a higher efficiency of the processes.
awiloc® is terminal independent and runs on common smartphones, tablets and wearables. The position calculation is done autonomously on the mobile device. This means that there is no data communication for the position determination with a central server. The mobile devices measure the signal strength of the transmitters (fingerprinting) and determine their position to within a few meters.
