What is the loading status measurement of container dollies?
In the airport sector, the management of the non-motorized equipment fleet is essential. With several thousand flights a day and tens of thousands of pieces of equipment on the tarmac, it is necessary to optimize the management of the equipment fleet of these airport sites.
Certain operations can then be implemented in order to gain efficiency and reduce the time between each aircraft arrival and departure. In order to meet this challenge and to propose a complete offer, we suggest you to integrate the measurement of the loading status of the container dollies to your IoT solution thanks to ELA Innovation Bluetooth Low Energy sensors.
How does the loading status measurement of container dollies work?
In order to optimize the management of an airport’s equipment fleet, it is important to know the location of each piece of equipment, as well as its utilization rate. Among the non-motorized equipment present on the tarmac of an airport, there are many containerized cargo carts (CPCs) used to transport parcels and baggage, among other things.
In order to speed up the loading and unloading of aircraft holds, it is important to know in real time the loading status of the container carts. This allows operators to know if a piece of equipment is already assigned to a current operation or not. For this purpose, each container dollies is equipped with a Bluetooth Low Energy distance measurement sensor. This sensor will be detected by the GPS trackers embedded in the motorized vehicles passing nearby. These multi-connectivity (GPS / Bluetooth / 4G) on-board telematics boxes will serve as a gateway and will report the position and loading status of the CPCs to the management platform in real time.
Why integrate Bluetooth Low Energy sensors into your container dollies loading status measurement solution?
ELA Innovation Bluetooth Low Energy distance measurement sensors are ideal for knowing the loading status of container dollies for many reasons:
Their battery operation offers up to 6 years of autonomy guaranteeing a competitive total cost of ownership.
Large detection range
The sensors are capable of detecting from 1 to 50 or even 100 cm, depending on the reflection of the target and the ambient light, with an accuracy of about 5%.
Compact and rugged
Industrial, waterproof and shock resistant, these sensors are compatible with severe environments and can be used outdoors.
