What is TRACCIA 4.0?
Thanks to recent developments in Ultra-WideBand (UWB) positioning systems, it is now possible to create reliable and precise systems for locating and tracking people and objects within an indoor, industrial facility.
These systems are known as Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS).
The effectiveness and accuracy of these systems can be augmented by fusing the collected information with other complementary technologies such as “automated image analysis”.
The whole data-set is sent to an indoor (or industrial) geographic information system (I-GIS) that continuously tracks, detects and monitors the area of interest; thus, improving the position data with both historical and contextual metadata and information.
This allows up a wide range of possible applications, such as: product monitoring, geofencing, historical and real-time flow analysis, unstructured logistics, AGV automation and more.
TRACCIA 4.0 uses indoor localization systems such as RTLS, RFID, IoT and Computer Vision to monitor movements and display them on georeferenced maps (standard formats: BIM, DWG, SHP).
RTLS & I-GIS
TRACCIA 4.0 produces real time updated map of what is going on in the factory (RTLS + I-GIS).
The reciprocal interactions of these data, in “space” and “time”, generate events that can produce data/actions for other factory’s systems.
Other systems integration
TRACCIA 4.0 grants the integration with other systems such as: ERP, CMMS, WMS, DMS; moreover, it produces control indicators (eg heatmaps of the movements).
TRACCIA locates people for safety and efficiency.
TRACCIA locates the equipment for their installation and verification.
TRACCIA locates products during the processing steps.
TRACCIA locates the equipment for their movement, use and control.
TRACCIA locates and tracks maintenance and deadlines.
