Precise Point - Airports

Next Generation Solution to locate personnel & assets at Airports

Airports are probably one of the most secure places in the world. However, with increasing air travels, and a growing number of population traveling by air every day, airports around the world have only increased in size to accommodate this growing number. Airports are home to a large number of mobile devices such as buggies, trolleys, carts, buses, etc. Airlines also need to know where its staff is within the airport premises to ensure travelers are not inconvenienced. Airports may also house equipment that are expensive, and hence it becomes necessary to locate such equipment in real time to ensure its safety. Using RTLS technology in Airports becomes necessary for asset management, tracking airline staff, improve operational efficiencies, improve productivity, and overall safety. This involves real-time locating of staff and equipment, as well as analysis of movement over a period of time. It is also essential to determine optimal and efficient allocation of resources.

Solution

The Precise Point™ solution address these challenges faced in the airlines industry. It combines innovative hardware components built with the company’s own industry leading wireless MCUs and a comprehensive software platform that provides location visualization, analytics, alerts, and more.

Real-time staff tracking

The solution provides for real-time visualization of the current, or the last known location of an airline staff. It can also provide filters to categorize staff based on airlines, or zones. Locating staff in real time become necessary during an emergency when travelers need help, or in communicating important messages such as a flight delay or cancellation.

Real-time asset tracking

The solution allows you to precisely locate assets in an airport. Wireless tags mounted on the assets can be enrolled into the system, including maps and floorplans, and current and historical data. The mapping and visualization functions included will help define specific zones and provide asset reports for each zone. Some equipment used in the airlines industry may be expensive, and it only makes sense to be able to track and locate them in real time to ensure safety of such equipment.

Unauthorized access prevention

Many areas in the airports are restricted to certain personnel categories only, such as airline staff, while other areas may be closed to other personnel, or for a specific duration due to maintenance or emergency operations. Generally, visual signages are provided to alert personnel. Nevertheless, it is important to identify and prevent unauthorized entry. The Precise Point™ solution provides for such dynamic definition of zones and provides instant alerts when a breach has occurred.

Staff and Resource management

Ensuring enough airline personnel and staff are present at any point in time is necessary to ensure smooth operations at airports. Efficient operations will ensure travelers are on time for boarding. It will also help supervisors of all airlines chart out plans for efficient staff and resource utilization.

Theft prevention

Loss of expensive equipment at an airport becomes a major liability, for both the airport and the airlines. Precise Point™ provides for real time location of equipment, and alerts personnel or supervisors when such equipment are moved, or removed from the premises.

Next Generation Solution for precisely locating personnel & assets at Warehouses

Locating assets and personnel is crucial in any large warehouse setup. Some warehouses run through the day to ensure the respective key metrics are met, and hence it becomes necessary to implement solutions for operational efficiencies. An operator might want to locate a specific asset, identify where specific assets are located, identify the nearest available forklift to transport a bulk order, or simply locate where an employee is in the warehouse. Using manual intervention makes the process cumbersome increasing lead times, reducing operational efficiencies, and lowering productivity levels. RTLS is also important when supervisors need to reach a specific asset or personnel during an emergency. Locating objects in real-time is important in logistics to address the above challenges. Furthermore, location data may be used for workflow optimization, safety, and operational efficiency.

Solution

The Precise Point™ solution address the challenges faced in the logistics industry. It combines innovative hardware components built with the company’s own industry leading wireless MCUs and a comprehensive software platform that provides location visualization, analytics, alerts, and more.

Real-time personnel location

The solution provides for visualization of the current, or the last known, location of personnel. It can also provide filters to isolate personnel of specific categories, or all personnel in specified location areas. The information is presented in a list form or on a map on a desktop or a mobile device for ease of use by supervisors.

Real-time asset tracking

The solution allows you to precisely locate assets in the warehouse. Wireless tags mounted on the assets can be enrolled into the system, including maps and floorplans, and current and historical data. The mapping and visualization functions included will help define specific zones and provide asset reports for each zone.

Unauthorized access prevention

Some areas in the warehouse may be restricted to certain personnel categories only, while other areas may be closed for a specific duration due to maintenance or emergency operations. Generally, visual signages are provided to alert personnel. Nevertheless, it is important to identify and prevent unauthorized entry. The Precise Point™ solution provides for such dynamic definition of zones and provides instant alerts when personnel move into such zones.

Employee productivity management

When operational efficiencies are to be met, warehouse supervisors at times find it difficult to monitor employee productivity, which can be a key indicator for efficient warehouse operations. Personnel tags will ensure employees are meeting their quota of responsibilities, and will help supervisors chart out plans for efficient utilization of employee bandwidth.

Pallet flow management

Pallets are key assets to move bulk of the products within a warehouse setup. Tracking location of such pallets will help supervisors and warehouse personnel identify closest available pallets for movement of products. Precise Point™ allows for such functionality reducing time taken for the operation.

Efficient Routing

The Precise Point™ solution offers real time location of various assets. This combined with efficient routing mechanism to reach the asset improves process time and efficiency.

Theft prevention

Loss of expensive equipment in an industrial set up becomes a major liability. Precise Point™ provides for real time location of equipment, and alerts personnel or supervisors when such equipment are moved, or removed from the premises.

Fall detection

Sometimes, employees may have to work in night shifts, and they may be the only ones working that night. Safety of such employees becomes the key priority for the employer. Precise Point solution helps in alerting appropriate personnel, and tracking such employees in real-time should there be an emergency such as a fall.
