LOST RTLS in double-bill feature at Flanders Institute for Logistics - Smart Handling event.
The Flanders Instituut for Logistics (VIL) has a mission "to improve the competitiveness of the companies in the logistics sector through the implementation of sustainable and innovative concepts and technologies."
On 26 Sept 2013 the Instituut hosted the Smart Handling event to publish the results of their recent investigation, where together with a consortium of 12 industry partners they had investigated and tested solutions for track and trace of local transport of goods indoors and outdoors.
Luc Pleysier of VIL presented the results of tests the consortium had performed using LOST technology to track outdoor asests at an Atlas Copco manufacturing site, with the conclusion that the RTLS technology allows reliable tracking of goods outdoors with sub-meter accuracy and sub-second response time.
In a second feature, Frank Meylaerts, Technical Driector of KM, discussed how they had performed test installations with competing WiFi based RTLS and passive RFID RTLS systems, before testing the LOST RTLS solution. Mr Meylaerts outlined the performance advantages (accuracy, robustness, ease of integration) which let to their decision to implement Essensium's LOST RTLS solution in order to track motor vehicles in their automobile testing centres.The event agenda can be viewed here.
