Ubisense is returning once more to Hannover Messe, this time exhibiting at booth no B31 in Hall 7, with a range of exciting new demonstrations that showcase how its IIoT platform SmartSpace works in a range of manufacturing environments. 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. SmartSpace closes a fundamental data-gap between production systems and real-world physical activities which cannot be connected to the enterprise LAN. Using location as an accurate context cue, SmartSpace literally plugs-in to the movements and interactions of real-world objects, creating a real-time digital twin of all untethered production activity. By connecting people and systems to this production reality, SmartSpace can be used to monitor, control and optimise process for increased quality, productivity and flexibility.
SmartSpace Tooling Management
SmartSpace continuously monitors the movement of tools and equipment throughout the production process, revealing real-world movements, utilisation and detecting non-compliant use. This real-time view of utilisation enables operations teams to improve productivity by ensuring tools and equipment are optimally distributed and used, non-conformant tools are quarantined and inventory levels are optimised.
Ubisense AngleID is a next generation RFID solution that measures RF angles to detect tags entering and exiting user defined zones. Simple to set up, it can be deployed in under 10 minutes in industrial environments. Flexible configuration provides up to 8 different zones which can provide precise realtime knowledge of tag location.
The Dimension4 Location Platform is a comprehensive package including sensor firmware and server-based software components required to configure, coordinate and manage the Dimension4 RTLS. Scalability and real-time performance lie at the core of the Dimension4 architecture, allowing users to deploy sensor systems that scale from micro-installations (small control systems running on a single machine) through to large sites with several servers and thousands of sensors and tags, with continuous and predictable behaviour.
Dimension4 is used in many sectors including automotive, aerospace, transit, military training, research, sports and healthcare.
SmartSpace Asset Monitor
SmartSpace monitors the location of tools and equipment throughout multiple production sites, where build and test processes are widely dispersed. Operations teams can now instantly find required resources, increasing productivity and decreasing order-to-delivery times by eliminating search waste.
SmartSpace Compliance Monitor
SmartSpace brings multiple different assembly and MRO verification processes together in a reliable, digital build record for complex products and assemblies. With both real-time and digital-ledger capabilities integrated into one platform, operations teams can rely on SmartSpace to immediately identify non-conforming tool, equipment or parts use within their assembly process, while quality and compliance teams gain a digital build record that is unmatched in both detail and reliability.
SmartSpace Production Logistics Monitor
Ubisense monitors the flow of kits and subassemblies in the plant and detects deviations from plan creating a real-time view of status and alerts. Operations teams can now proactively maintain JIT and JIS flow from origin to point of use with the aid of real-time guidance and automatic verification.
Industrial IoT at enterprise scale
SmartSpace is an enterprise platform that uses location and identification from any source to create visibility of real-world objects and their interactions, enabling complex manufacturing processes with high levels of variability to be more flexible, easier to manage and easier to control.
