In 2023, Warehouses Need Real-Time Location Systems

2023-03-24T11:20:04+00:00March 24th, 2023|SmartSpace Use-Cases, Transformation|

Real-time Location Systems (RTLS) grew out of the warehousing and logistics industry and can now be found in auto plants, hospitals, ports, and a growing list of manufacturing environments. In warehousing, the need to track inventory has always been crucial, but modern RTLS systems are capable of much more than simply tracking the location of pallets. In this article, we will run through the main applications of Warehousing RTLS in 2023. But first, a

Aviation & MRO Asset Tracking – The Ultimate Guide

2023-03-20T11:38:34+00:00March 14th, 2023|SmartSpace Use-Cases, Transformation|

INTRODUCTION In this article we will explore how using RTLS systems (and digital twins) can revolutionize MRO efficiency and inventory management. We discuss how the concept of real-time asset tracking, having been perfected in assembly plants across aerospace and automotive manufacturing, is now being applied to aerospace and MRO operations. The Internet of Things is a much-discussed topic, but people aren’t things, and nobody sells “smart, connected wing stands” so how do IoT

Creating A Smart Port With RTLS

2023-03-07T10:43:07+00:00March 7th, 2023|SmartSpace Use-Cases, Transformation|

Real-time location systems (RTLS) are becoming a useful tool in the management of ports and container terminals. Becoming a "smart port" requires better visibility and tracking of assets in real-time, improving operational efficiency and worker safety. In this article, we will explore the usage of RTLS in creating smart ports and container terminals, with a focus on worker safety, vehicle tracking, collision tracking, and container storage.

SmartSpace Forklift Tracking – The Ultimate Forklift Monitoring System

2023-02-15T15:08:31+00:00February 9th, 2023|SmartSpace Use-Cases, Transformation|

Real-time forklift tracking in an age of IoT devices is becoming increasingly common in all sorts of environments, including warehouses, factories, ports, and logistics hubs. Historically, inventory has been tracked with simple RFID tags, requiring manual scanning, or more complex and cumbersome Bluetooth or “Active” RFID tags. Now, there are RTLSs (Real-time Location Systems) that can be set up with fewer sensors, higher accuracy, and a far greater number of benefits. Ours is called

Top 5 Reasons to Invest in A Tool Management System

2023-02-15T15:14:13+00:00January 26th, 2023|SmartSpace Use-Cases, Transformation|

Industrial technology has come a long way over the past twenty years. Factories, auto plants, airline hangers, and logistics centers are often at the cutting edge of technological development, but there is always newer technology that can improve efficiency and promote a better working environment. Tool Management Systems have existed in some shape or form since antiquity, but due to new Real-Time Location Technologies (RTLS) they are evolving into more comprehensive, user-friendly technology. In

Optimizing Transport Logistics in the Digital Age

2023-02-15T15:08:38+00:00January 12th, 2023|SmartSpace Use-Cases, Transformation|

Transport logistics has rested at the core of many businesses and urban environments for a long time, but over the past few years, efficiently running transport hubs, ports, industrial loading docks, and warehousing facilities has only become more difficult. Shortages in staff, increase in fuel prices, more diverse transport fleets (including EVs), and the expense of land for parking and loading have all applied pressure to this critical work. On top of this, pressure

Indoor Asset Tracking – Considerations and Use Cases

2023-01-09T10:11:01+00:00December 22nd, 2022|SmartSpace Use-Cases, Transformation|

Indoor asset tracking is a system that tracks the location and movement of assets in indoor environments like hospitals, factory floors, and offices. Challenges like limited line-of-sight, interference, attenuation, and accuracy requirements make indoor asset tracking more difficult than outdoor asset tracking. This article will explore some of the technical considerations for tracking assets indoors. Let's start with a brief overview of technologies used for indoor asset tracking. Indoor Asset Tracking Technologies Indoor asset

A Guide to Smart Manufacturing Logistics in 2023

2022-12-18T14:02:35+00:00December 18th, 2022|SmartSpace Use-Cases, Transformation|

Manufacturing has changed over the last few years. More demanding delivery schedules, more personalized products, “just in time” manufacturing processes, and a global pandemic have made their mark, and many manufacturers are struggling to remain competitive. The need to maintain oversight of increasingly complex operations has led facility managers to look for innovative solutions. Thy need to tracking raw materials and parts, seeing them through non-linear production lines and busy transit yards, and work

Role of Location Tracking Technology in Industrial Worker Safety

2022-12-13T18:51:07+00:00December 13th, 2022|Industry Trends, SmartSpace Use-Cases, Transformation|

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a staggering 4764 individuals lost their lives in 2020 due to fatal occupational injuries. While making an industrial environment risk-free is impossible, using Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) ensures workers are safer and employers have a better emergency response plan. Below, we take a look at how location-tracking technology facilitates industrial worker safety. Industrial Emergency Response Management In June 2020, a fire gutted an online sales warehouse in
