UWB Real Time Location Tracking for Factory

On the basis of Industry 4.0, solutions for precise location facilitates the smart management of factory personnel, supplies and vehicles, ensuring personnel safety while improving the productivity.

Pain Points of the Industry:

Solution Overview: 


 EHIGH personnel location system for factory, adopting UWB RTLS, obtains accurate location of staff via deploying a certain number of location anchors in the factory, and equipping staff, vehicles and supplies with location tags, with the error within up to 10cm.

  The system achieves supplies/vehicles real-time location and quantity query, as well as fully intelligent supplies/vehicles search, which improves work efficiency and realizes reasonable dispatching. ThroughIntegrating face recognition, intelligent attendance, working-hour counting, behavior monitoring, historical data playback, personnel management, electronic fence, emergency rescue and other functions, it realizes the standardized management of on-duty personnel and subcontractors. Moreover, it links and integrates functions such as personal efficiency analysis and supplies allocation counting, which can help the factory to conduct smart and visual targeted management, and to allocate staff, supplies and vehicles to each workshop appropriately. Finally, the use of vehicle proximity alert effectively prevents the occurrence of high-risk accidents such as vehicle collision and crushing workers.  

Case Videos:

  ◆ Unclear location of supplies and vehicles leads to difficulties in querying, tracking and dispatching. 

  ◆ Scattered staff distribution and complicated staff composition bring about difficulties for managers in regulation.

◆ Lack of updated data impedes the optimization of work process. 

◆ Vicious accidents in the factory such as scratching, collision and crushing between forklifts and accidentally injuring                  all lead to serious consequences.

Major Functions:

| Behavior Monitoring

Ranging alarm of factory personnel location

◆ Smart attendance checking: automatically record attendance of the factory workers.

◆ Working-hour counting: calculate the working hours of individuals or departments in each time period. 

◆ Information identification: automatically identify the tag holder's ID number, name, team, position, phone number and other information. 

◆ Data export: retrieve and print attendance information by personal information, and generate attendance reports. 

Behavior monitoring of factory personnel orientation

◆ Implement bahavior monitoring on staff within specific areas to effectively prevent off-duty/beyond-duty behavior and                  overstaffing/understaffing. 

◆ Automatically send an alarm when any staff stay for more than a certain period of time, and the retention area and time can be customized. 

◆ Automatically send an alarm for crowd gathering/unattended situation, and customize the crowd gathering size. 

◆ Automatically send an alarm when any staff keep motionless for a certain period of time, and customize the duration. 

Video linkage of factory personnel positioning

| Real-time location

Real time positioning of factory personnel

Obtain the location, distribution and motion trails of staff/supplies/vehicles in real time.

Query the quantity of supplies/vehicles in real time to realize fully automatic management.

◆ Search supplies and vehicles intelligently to improve work efficiency and dispatch reasonably.

| Smart Attendance and Working Hour Counting

Intelligent attendance of factory staff orientation

| Geofence

Electronic fence for factory personnel positioning

◆ Flexible setting of electronic fence shape, alarm rules and access rights. 

◆ Conduct alarm management to personnel without permission to enter or exit any dangerous area to ensure the safety of personnel. 

| Video Linkage

◆ Link video monitoring on key areas to achieve the early warning. 

◆ Keep video records of alarm events to provide a basis for any further processing. 

◆ Carry out personnel efficiency analysis and materials distribution statistics to reasonably dispatch staff and utilize stored materials. 

| Anti-collision Alarm for Vehicle/Human 

Anti-collision alarm for human-to-vehicle: when the distance between staff and vehicle exceeds the safe range,    the acousto-optic anchor on the vehicle and the tag worn by staff will send alarm simultaneously.

Anti-collision alarm for vehicle -to-vehicle: when the distance between vehicles exceeds the safe range,the             acousto-optic anchors on the vehicles will send alarms to each other.

Blind zone anti-collision alarm: when the vehicles/staff approaches a corner or are at the blind zone of visual distance, there will be a danger of accidental collision. Again, acousto-optic alarms will be sent.

EHIGH Advantages

| Data Storage and Historical Data Playback

Replaying the historical track of factory personnel positioning

◆ Data storage: unlimited storage of personnel motion trails can provide the basis for decision-making in tackling      incidents.

◆ Track playback: the motion trails of a person/vehicle within a specific period of time can be played back based on the specific person or area.
