Digital Manufacturing and RTLS

The Industry 4.0 paradigm has introduced new concepts and models in the manufacturing world. One of the fundamental architectural elements in the vision of Industry 4.0 is the digital twin, based on the idea that every physical entity must have a representation in the digital world. In the field of discrete manufacturing, physical entities to be represented with a digital model include batches of raw materials, semi-finished or finished products, tools, production workers, etc... RTLS (Real-Time Locating System) technologies are able to create the digital twin, providing entities position, possibly integrated with augmented information (status, environmental parameters, ...). The benefits for the production company are manifold: optimization of internal logistics, real-time control of the progress of production, reduction in the search times for materials, improvement of the utilization rate of the means of production, reduction of waste, increase of safety at work.

Bluetooth Low Energy: key technology for RTLS

BlueUp, leader in the design and production of BLE and 2.4GHz-mesh beacons and tags with an unique technology portfolio, which includes iBeacon, Eddystone, Quuppa, Wirepas, thanks to its know-how and background of skills, is able to support the market in adopting the best RTLS solutions.

BLE technology has unique characteristics of flexibility, adaptability and scalability: based on the specific solutions adopted, it can be implemented by favoring, from time to time, performance, cost, backwards compatibility, etc ... BlueUp offers three different RTLS middleware platforms, which can be integrated via API with the application software involved in the production processes (ERP, MES, WMS, ...). The goal is to facilitate the adoption of RTLS systems, bridging the gap between the technology producer and the end-user. Thanks to a consolidated network of partners (system integrators, solution providers, software houses, ...), BlueUp is able to offer end-to-end solutions for the most varied market needs.

MeshCube is the simplest solution on the market, not requiring any wiring (all anchors can be battery-powered), based on Wirepas Mesh 2.4GHz technology, which guarantees high scalability and allows for a 90% reduction in costs of design, installation and IT infrastructure. MeshCube is more than a RTLS: it is an All-in-1 IoT platform that can also integrate sensors, actuators, BLE beacons. It represents the ideal solution for retro-fit installations, for the location of assets inside warehouses or semi-finished products during the different phases of the production process.

LocateBLE, which adopts BLE beacon technology, is characterized by high flexibility: thanks to a modular architecture, LocateBLE is designed to be compatible with multiple types of BLE scanners and gateways available on the market, with different communication technologies: Ethernet, WiFi, Zigbee, etc .... LocateBLE is the ideal solution in all applications where real-time position and status control is required, while maintaining a high simplicity of installation and use.

AccuRTLS provides state-of-the-art performance in terms of accuracy (with localization error less than 0.5m in real environment) and is based on Quuppa Angle of Arrival (AoA) technology. Quuppa Approved tags, by BlueUp, are able to cover the most diverse application requirements. AccuRTLS meets the needs for high precision and reliable localization systems: accurate monitoring of workstations, path tracking, anti-collision, etc ...
