BLE Asset Tracking
Real-Time Location System (RTLS) applications have made Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) a popular wireless location technology. Real-time
location services enable the real-time tracking of people or objects.
Processes can be enhanced with employees concentrating on activities with a higher value to the business thanks to the capacity to discover and track assets and people correctly.
Our enterprise custom build product help business-critical organisations increase productivity, safety, and compliance. The data and insights you receive will allow you to better understand your business. RTLS has proven to be an essential need to gain complete learning of what is happening at a facility.
How does it work?
BLE, short for Bluetooth Low Energy, is a wireless technology that is primarily used for indoor locating applications like asset tracking, indoor navigation, and proximity services.
Beacons, badges for employees, and wearables are examples of BLE beacons, which are compact, adaptable, and low-power bluetooth transmitters.
The signals can be detected by gadgets like BLE readers, also known as BLE gateways, and BLE-capable smartphones. An indoor positioning system (IPS) or real-time location system (RTLS) can be used to send location data collected by a beacon to fixed locations.
Accelerometers, light, temperature, humidity, and other sorts of sensors can be added to your infrastructure to improve your system and gather insightful data.
These upgrades could push up the initial cost of your infrastructure, but they also have the potential to extend its lifespan by many months or years by leveraging these sensors to improve energy efficiency.
Devices with Bluetooth functionality can be located using Bluetooth positioning. Bluetooth devices' received signal strength measurements are used to determine how far apart they are from one another. Bluetooth placement requires many Bluetooth devices to communicate with one another to accurately determine the location of Bluetooth devices.
The location of BLE-compatible devices, such as mobile phones for BLE tracking tags, is determined by BLE beacons posted on walls. BLE beacons can function for years on a single battery thanks to their low power consumption.

BLE in Manufacturing
Enhancing Manufacturing Productivity and Efficiency through Asset Tracking
Work in Progress
Manufacturers may track the development of their goods at every level of the manufacturing process with the help of detailed work-in-progress analyses. Finding these "weak" spots and bottlenecks in your company will enable you to streamline the procedure and do away with delays.
The ability to track assets while they are transported would be beneficial to manufacturing companies. Items lost in transit can hinder productivity, add to costs, and create unneeded delays. Asset tracking lowers the possibility of products getting lost in transportation and helps with planning so that deliveries are made on schedule. Asset tags cut down on time needed to find and find assets. Due to the more precise tracking of stocks, they can also make audits simpler.
When creating, storing, or shipping things that are sensitive to temperature, take adequate precautions. Vibration sensors can instantly identify the effects of substandard shipment or handling practices.
You will be able to monitor how procedural errors, unforeseen route alterations, and unforeseen stops affect security through the use of an accelerometer and GPS.
We keep an eye on the current location and weather. improving decision-making, lowering risk, and speeding up response times by monitoring assets with IoT-based sensors and leveraging real-time vital alerts.
To maximise value during your operations, consider what resources are being used and how they are used. When employees are given greater resources, it also ensures they have all the tools needed to complete their tasks. You can gather reports and do data analysis with an RTLS to assist your business in more efficiently controlling its processes.
BLE in Warehouse
Better inventory management with increased warehouse visibility
People - Employees or Visitors
The main applications of RTLS are the tagging of team members, vendors, and visitors. Necklaces, wristbands, watches, belt buckles, and hard hats are wearable tags. Managers want to know who has left the premises and who has not during emergencies or drills or entered a zone not permitted.
Products, as they pass through a manufacturing process, are made possible by inventory tracking using RTLS tags. Managers in manufacturing, distribution and storage can benefit from RTLS tags. To decrease booking errors, simplify workflow, and shorten lead times, it's critical to keep track of your progress. Through the use of RTLS analytics, you may locate the required asset sooner with right documentation.
Equipment and Machinery
Critical equipment loss could cost the warehouse a small fortune or cause it to miss production or shipment deadlines. Through RTLS tags, all assets can be used efficiently, reducing asset misuse. Forklifts can be used more effectively when real-time data is employed, such as heat maps, route optimization, and shock detection.
BLE in Logistics
Leveraging asset tracking to improve logistics productivity
The management of the supply chain and logistics processes ensures that products are delivered from one site to another in the lowest amount of time. Tracking your leased and remote assets will boost efficiency by giving you real-time information on shipments and equipment.
The reports generated by asset tracking systems make them trustworthy. When a problem arises, businesses can gain time back to the greater visibility given by real-time. This visibility will help with delayed or damaged shipments as well. Companies will be able to locate their goods more rapidly with the aid of the data. When a package is delivered, asset tracking can produce a POD.
Supply warehouses must follow safety measures because they keep a lot of items. Managers can find people in the facility, view them, and learn where they were last seen. Emergency headcounts, last-known whereabouts, fall detection and immobility monitoring, and even an SOS trigger for emergency notifications are just a few of the safety options that are accessible.
Efficiency and Productivity
Supply chain and logistics rely heavily on personnel and machine synchronisation for quick turnaround, hence operations efficiency is crucial. You may monitor and improve your facilities' operations using data-driven insights offered by an intelligence platform based on real-time location systems (RTLS).
Because it reduces asset loss, asset tracking hardware is thought to be the most significant advantage for logistics businesses. By doing this, the amount of money lost or stolen annually as a result of missing or stolen shipments or equipment can be decreased.
BLE for People
Whether your employees are on payroll or not, effectively manage them.
The foundation of any organisation is its workforce.
An organization's overall performance can be improved by increasing worker productivity and safety. In this case, a tracking system may be helpful.
Any facility, regardless of size, can monitor its direct or indirect payroll employees on a facility level with the RTLS Solution. The real-time location allows for implementing numerous technology controls, resulting in increased compliance, safety, and efficiency.
When someone presses their SOS buttons, they are immediately informed of their whereabouts. In this situation, the individual in need can obtain instant aid without having to hunt for it.
Keep an eye on patients when they are in a medical facility of facility. You can check the tags to see whether someone has left their room. If they depart instead of staying, it is much simpler to identify someone who is hurt.
Allowing employees to wear asset monitoring tags simplifies reporting data if your business wants particular information about what and when they perform something, as opposed to having them handwrite everything and risk forgetting something.
