Indoor tracking : Management of industrial tools

As a major player in the aeronautics industry, the management of industrial tooling is a real challenge for Safran Aircraft Engines whether for performance, cost or safety reasons. The equipment manufacturer trusted Orange Business Services and ELA Innovation to deploy a high-precision indoor geolocation solution to digitalize and automate its inventory.
This solution was deployed in stages on 2 production sites (55,000m² and 20,000m²), to integrate perfectly with the business processes already in place and to take into account the technical constraints. Indeed, the metal environment, the surface area and the ceiling height (about 8m), as well as the number of tools to be geolocated (+/- 25,000) required a pilot phase to validate the technical choices.
The objective is to be at the cutting edge of technology and to adapt our means of production in order to improve all processes and the quality of work

From a technical point of view, the geolocation solution for industrial tools is based on an infrastructure consisting of a set of tracking beacons and 360° antennas, also called «locators». Based on Quuppa AOA (Angle Of Arrival) technology, the beacons attached to the tools will emit a location signal every second when the equipment is in motion and every 10 seconds in static mode.
The antennas fixed on the top will cover a maximum of the ground surface, in order to detect all the surrounding beacons and thus calculate the angle of arrival of the signal formed between them and the beacons. The beacons will then transmit the positioning information to the business application through the Quuppa Positioning Engine tool which will transform the raw data into GPS data.

On the business application, the operators will be able to visualize in real time on a map the position of all the tools with a very fine precision (up to 1m). They will also have access to numerous dashboards to optimize the management of the equipment fleet and ensure predictive maintenance.
