System

UWB IPS Solution

Model: UWB-IPS
Overview:

     Industrial 4.0-UWB IPS is a precise real-time location system that locates mobile staff, objects, equipment and vehicles. It is suitable to track hundreds of objects simultaneously in a large-scale building.

Related Industry:

♦ Logistic and warehousing management.  Real- time location to monitor
   workers or items in order to increase efficiency and cut down time waste.
♦ The movement of precision equipment is closely monitored when
   transporting to a different location. 
Working condition is ensured when the environment is highly monitored.
♦ R
estrict permission from entering highly secure areas.
The application for accuracy judgement in terms of  drones, robots and
   automatic warehousing.

Moving object position monitoring

Ranging Solution for anticollision system


 Distance measurement is applied for collision avoidance between vehicles such as car, train, forklift and tramcar and so on. It helps to maintain safety margins, take control of real-time location of  targeted vehicle, makes appropriate arrangements for vehicle control, increases efficiency and safety.

 

Mgt of material carriers locations and production process in a textile mill


 Take control of real-time material carrier’s location. Keep track of delivery process of carriers to next process line and detect unusual delay of the carriers in production line. The network is compliant with MES computer system to manage production machine, manufacturing process and staff deployment.

 

Mgt of ground service crew vehicles and transport of mobile equipment in parking apron( airport)


 Monitor real-time locations of vehicles; control the route of the vehicles to prevent accidents in parking apron.  Centralize operations in monitoring vehicles that transport food, lug gages, goods and mobile equipment.

Monitoring exhibits in museums, trade shows and events


 Surveil exhibits whether or not they are moved /damaged. If a valuable/ delicate exhibit is touched or shifted, the end device receives a signal and immediately triggers an alarm. Simultaneously, the security guard receives the warning and approaches the scene to take action.

Warehousing storage and logistic
management


 Provide real-time information of the entire location.Keep track of forklift movement and maintain safety margins. Maximize production process, locate stored items faster, effectively control inventory and material flow.

Surveil precision machines / equipment


 If the static machine is intentionally touched or moved out of the restricted area without authorization, the end device promptly triggers alarm. The supervisor is able to locate and monitor the machines/equipment of interest, easy to account for and make appropriate arrangements.

 

 

▶ Personnel Position monitoring

Factory personnel access and movement history


 Monitor construction/ repair personnel on factory premises, control construction / repair schedule to conform to the downtime allowances, closely monitor personnel safety and offer immediate aid service, retrieve a report of movement history of targeted personnel.

 

Positioning and rescue management in petrochemical/gas plants


 An electronic fence is installed according to different levels of security, restricting permission to enter highly secure areas.  If a trespasser intrudes, the system simultaneously alerts the trespasser and calls for security intervention.

 

Personnel automatic attendance management


 An automatic record shows the number of staff entering and leaving on a daily, monthly or annual basis, monitor staff activity and productivity, monitor idle time, assess absenteeism.  Develop a report on an individual’s behavior for performance review.

Medical/old folk home location monitoring management


 Monitor patients/elderly in different rooms and transmit their vital statistics to a central server. Enable doctors and medical staff to locate the targeted patient/elderly faster. Help patients/ elderly and employees navigate through the premises to avoid prohibited places.

Staff safety management on construction sites


 Simultaneously monitoring field staff and their deployment, provide second by second on site staff numbers and the cumulative number of attendees on a daily basis. When an unforeseen side event occurs, the site staff can notify the end user. He can swiftly locate and instruct the site supervisor.

Position monitoring and camera linked surveillance


 Track the staff’s movement and closely monitor staff’s activity, cameras capture on-the-spot photos; automatically monitor blind spots or remote locations.  When emergency occurs, the system informs the end user regarding the location of the alarm and a supervisor can act immediately.

 

 

Overview  

 

UWB precision indoor position system enables to locate workers, materials, cars, tags through base stations in a large-scale infrastructure. Information from variable tracked objects are received by background operators. It is easier for tracking workers, material query inventory, vehicle dispatch, mileage record and so on. Moreover, it has established on the basis of trajectory tracking, regional alarm, photographic device linkage. The UWB system is highly scalable with the ability to cover large area for simultaneously tracking hundreds of objects on the assembly line. Therefore, productivity and efficiency are greatly.

FAQ  

► What is positioning theory?

      High positioning tag transmits wireless frequency to individual base station. The precise distance is measured in order to find the accurate location information.

► How is the system established?

     The base station is built indoors/outdoors. The tracked person/equipment carries a tag. The positioning data collected from base station is transmitted by RJ45/WiFi to servers. The precise locations of each tag is measured via servers.

► How is the barrier penetration?

     The penetration through the wall is not recommended. The positioning distance after penetrating the wall is shortened and makes accuracy worsen.

► Anchor range?

     Anchor is built every 30m. For example, 4 anchors are built by 30x30. 6 anchors are built by 30x60.

 

Locating Features  

► Comparison of advantages and disadvantages about IPS

 

► Comparison of accuracy about IPS

 RFID: Induction measurement. RFID reader has limit on the amount of TAG to be read at the same time.

 BT / ZigBee: RSSI measurement (high tendency to be interfered by metal and environment), no limit on the number of TAGs connected to the node point.

 UWB: TDOA/TOF algorithm (frequency band is 3.25G~6.75G, not easily influenced by the environment frequency band), no limit on the connected TAG to the base station

System Model

Type-B(Advance):Precise indoor positioning for people and objects
Type-C(Advance):Precise indoor positioning for people and objects
Type-D(for projects): for robots, AGVs or other stand-alone devices that require position acquisition.
※ The processor of the device needs to be able to calculate the positioning algorithm, because the tag device on 
      the target device will directly transmit the distance data to the target device.
