SmartSpace

Ubisense's SmartSpace is a modular software platform that manages real-time location and identification data from multiple sources to support industrial-scale, mission-critical visibility and control applications.

Delivering new levels of visibility and control, SmartSpace provides a foundation platform for manufacturers’ Industry 4.0 strategy. Enabling customers to create a real-time digital twin of the production environment, Ubisense’s technology connects activities in the real world to manufacturing execution and planning systems, making real-world processes involving moving assets visible and measurable.

 

SmartSpace closes a fundamental data-gap between production systems and real-world physical activities which cannot be connected to the enterprise LAN. 

  • To facilitate building sensor-rich, industrial-scale implementations, SmartSpace is fully sensor-independent, taking in and handling location and identification events from almost any data source, including thirdparty sensors, third-party tag readers, barcode or other software systems (such as RDBMS, ERP or MES).
  • Scalability and real-time performance lie at the core of the SmartSpace architecture, allowing users to build applications that scale from microinstallations (small control systems running on a single machine) through to large sites with several servers and thousands of sensors, devices, people etc., all with predictable performance.
  • SmartSpace is divided into a set of functional blocks called components that can be plugged together in different ways. Within each component, application builders have multiple similarly themed features available for building applications that match customer requirements and end-user behaviour

Challenge for the 21st Century Automotive Manufacturer: Should you invest in cutting costs or increasing flexibility?

Challenge for the 21st Century Automotive Manufacturer: Should you invest in cutting costs or increasing flexibility?

During this webinar our panel of experts in automotive assembly lines discuss the following issues:

  • Why do manufacturers spend so much money refitting assembly lines for new models?
  • Is lean thinking the problem? 
  • Is there a new assembly paradigm that doesn’t have these problems?
  • How is the industry responding to this problem, what models are being adopted?
  • And where does Industry 4.0 fit into all of this?   

 
To find out the answers to these, and many other questions, view our webinar to hear views from the expert panel, including Adrian Jennings, VP RTLS Technology at Ubisense and Monika Minarcin, Industry Manager Automotive and Semiconductor at Omron.

What our clients say

Aldric Pavec, Claas Production Manager, said: “As a leading tractor manufacturer throughout Europe, Claas offers an extremely wide choice of vehicle models in order to meet the needs of modern agriculture “By adding Ubisense technology to the facility at Le Mans, we will be able to best cope with product complexity while reducing waste.”

In May 2017 we began a feasibility study on Ubisense products in Thailand. We were of the view that the latest information technology based on Ubisense market-leading RTLS technology would attract the potential demand for breakthrough improvement in the production and logistics operations across the region.

We soon recognized that it would make sense to bring in Ubisense products to further enhance the competitive edge of various industries in Thailand.

Ryoichi Sasaki, founder of Logiprotech and ex President of Toyota Motor Thailand and President of Toyota Motor Asia-Pacific

Ubisense have been a great partner with us…. Very happy with the support that they’ve given us.

Dave Haydon at Outboard said: “We’ve been using Ubisense’s technology for a number of years now and it gives our systems unparalleled precision when tracking performers around the stage. It’s been great working with Finnish National Opera (FNO) and the New National Theatre in Tokyo, two establishments that demand high-quality solutions to deliver their audiences the very best in sound quality. ”
