Location tracking

The goal of the PoC was to improve track objects in production by automating data collection and visualize data to track items moving through assembly line, track tools and their time in use, to generate start and finish acknowledgements, and to monitor takt time. Quuppa system with 6 locator antennas 50 tags and software were installed on an assembly line. The accuracy was about 20 cm in open area, but metal structures had a significant effect on detection. Locating system and tags can be configured to react to movement and various, pre-defined zones. Movement between zones can trigger messages to control system.┬┤Production phase or work task acknowledgements can be generated based on movement of tagged product/carrier or tool.
