Challenge:
Real-time locating system (RTLS) for assembly processes

Introduction

As MVP we want an application to be realized, that locates respective assets within designated test area and visualizes them on a mobile app. Additionally the x, y, z coordinates need to be available in an on premises internal database.

Focus is on flexible asset tracking of different load carriers with high precision.

Problem

  • Supplied parts arrive at goods receipt area, are being picked and transported to assembly area on different load carriers
  • Assembly process based on multiple small and medium sized standardized components
  • Clear assignment of serialized components to specific assembly
  • High position accuracy necessary to identify parts in relatively small area (~ 200 m2)
  • Low latency to support ideal assembly process
  • Visualization of parts on mobile app and availability of data for 3rd party applications (e.g. AR application)
