Asset tracking: location of handling equipment

Allopneus’ huge logistics center, storing more than one million tires and shipping 50,000 products per day, has trusted Apitrak and ELA Innovation to quickly and efficiently locate its industrial equipment, with the aim of improving the site’s safety and optimizing its management. ELA Innovation and Apitrak have deployed, on the 84,000 m² of the Valencia platform, an adapted solution to detect, locate and trace precisely the various logistics equipment such as forklift trucks.
"ELA Innovation's hardware is particularly well suited for harsh environments. We used the PUCKs to geolocate forklift trucks at allopneus.com in Valencia: Good tagging performance on trucks subjected to harsh conditions".

From a technical point of view, the localization solution is based on a meshed network of fixed and mobile beacons. The former, also called anchors, are installed at regular intervals (25 meters) throughout the site, while the latter are positioned directly on the industrial equipment. The mobile Blue PUCK ID Mesh emits signals to the various anchors, which in turn pick up all dialogues and transmit the information to the gateway.

However, since the data collected by the sensors is raw, it is transformed into GPS data (latitude and longitude) by the Wirepas Positioning Engine tool and visualized on the Apitrak Explorer web application.

This complete solution has been developed and implemented by Apitrak, which handles installation, maintenance, technical support and the IoT platform.
