Inventory tracking on the shop floor
IOT Indoor inventory tracking depicts the localization of persons and objects within the shop floor and warehouses. This indoor localization is a technical challenge because GPS devices do not work within interior spaces, besides the need to frequently charge the batteries. The need for indoor positioning solutions in warehouses, factories can help improve productivity, save costs in the current business scenario, where modernisation and going digital will be the need of the hour
A Digital twin, shop floor monitoring solution comprises workflow monitoring software, data visualization tools, report builder, analytics, Wirepas mesh license, Bluetooth tags, anchors, and gateway devices.
Factories and warehouses have many high-value objects such as machinery, tools, spares, raw material, finished goods inventory, etc that need to be located easily and accounted for.
Indoor positioning system & mesh technology
Bluetooth Low Energy mesh enabled sensors provide the right solution to accurately locate the position of these objects in a shop floor area that spans vast areas of up to 100,000 square meters and supporting up to 1 million devices on a highly reliable, no interference, zero failure network for production critical applications.
Indoor positioning system & workflow monitoring
Our research and development team has crossed significant milestones in building on-premise/cloud-enabled indoor positioning software for indoor inventory and workflow monitoring. The software has the capability to creates zones on the shop floor, assign tracking tags, monitoring sensors such as air quality, tilt, acceleration, pressure, etc and provides a birds-eye view for operations team members take corrective action where needed.
The benefits of deployment of efficient, low maintenance and secure indoor positioning systems are many. These include an increase in productivity, Anti-theft, servicing, etc.
Indoor navigation can help trace key resources, their deployment on the shop floor and enable the knowledge transfer process.
Benefits of deploying indoor beacons

- Improve safety and security aspects in factories
- Easy to deploy wireless indoor beacon solutions
- Track moving objects within a 5-meter radius
- Know the location of assets, contractors and workers
- Gain insights on production workflow by creating zones
- Easily track inventory in warehouses and in-transit
- Improve office productivity by analyzing workflow patterns
- On-premise & Edge gateway deployment for a secure environment
- Shop floor efficiency solutions provides 360 degree view
Indoor positioning system in factories, construction sites & warehouses
Indoor positioning can be realized easily with mesh software technology. The combination of our various sensors allows the accuracy of appx five feet. Ripples IOT deploys multiple sensors for the detection of magnetic fields, CO2, air pressure, barometer, accelerometer, gyroscope, and combines them with external sensor data using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth mesh network.
Our solutions can be integrated as a hybrid – indoor location tracking platform for last-mile visibility and global roaming GPS & 4G connectivity across 170 countries.
