Best indoor positioning system
The best indoor positioning systems are those which can offer the lowest of cost / sq meters of area coverage. This is usually computed by taking into consideration the indoor accuracy (2.5 sq meters and above), the transmission frequency – how often to detect the movement of the object, the cost of wiring & other infrastructure, the battery life, the speed and ease of deployment and the integration offered with inventory, asset and workforce monitoring solutions.
Deploying indoor positioning system
Indoor positioning systems can be deployed in industrial building for tracking of inventory, assets & workforce. The data available through such a system provided time-in and time-out functions, whereby the time spend by the object in a specific zone is determined using the triangulation mechanism provided by mesh or other network technologies.
Indoor monitoring applications
Simple indoor monitoring solutions include the measurement of temperature in electrical circuits and machine to help detect over heating. Track repairs and monitor preventive maintenance.
Monitoring of pressure – The dust particles that are produced during the granulation process may enter the air and could contaminate other products. The increased pressure prevents the air containing this dust and any other contaminants reaching the sterile environment such as in pharmaceutical industry.
Humidity measurement is an important tool for predicting the climate outdoors as well as controlling the climate indoors. Humidity control is especially important in living, storage, and manufacturing sites
Simultaneous locating and monitoring
The new generation indoor positioning system offers, apart from the location of the object with certain accuracy (2.5 meters and above), certain moving objects would also have the need of monitoring aspects such as temperature (cold chain), humidity (water proof), pressure (dust control) and shock. These multi function location & monitoring sensors are capable of providing location and other information to help smart warehouses, factories constantly monitor the production and storage facilities to ensure the highest of workplace safety and productivity.
