Ubisense Chief Product Advocate, Adrian Jennings, will deliver a presentation on the topic of ‘People Aren’t Things: Extending IoT to Manual Processes’.
Join us on 30 October at 2.00pm!
Ubisense transforms physical spaces into smart spaces, bringing manufacturers proven gains in quality, cost, and productivity. Our SmartSpace platform monitors the physical flow of the factory creating a real-time “digital twin” of the process. This Digital Process Twin provides the deep situational awareness that empowers people to make more insightful decisions, and business systems to operate with foresight and certainty. With offices in the UK, France, Germany, North America, Canada and Japan, Ubisense has more than 900 customers across the globe, and has enabled many to implement their factory digitisation strategies.
About The SAE Innovations in Mobility Conference
The SAE Innovations in Mobility Conference provides attendees with a revolutionary technical experience in the areas of Smart Manufacturing, Next Gen Materials, Advanced Propulsion, Smart Mobility and Infrastructure, Automated and Unmanned Mobility, and more.
In response to evolving mobility demands, eight previously held SAE International events will be co-located, along with the aforementioned topics, into 5 technology tracks – creating a comprehensive technical programme.
Ubisense Presentation at The SAE Innovations in Mobility Conference – by Adrian Jennings: People Aren’t Things – Extending IoT to Manual Processes
IoT focuses on connectivity between “things” – devices, machines, tools etc., but in automotive assembly many processes are still overwhelmingly planned, supervised and executed by people. In this presentation Adrian Jennings describes how the standard notion of the IoT “Digital Twin” has limited value in these applications, leaving large parts of critical processes completely opaque and unconnected. Using real-world case studies as examples, Adrian will explain technologies that are extending the Digital Twin to encompass manual assembly activities and how significant value is being created as a result.

In this role he acts as a spokesperson, accelerating development and adoption of Ubisense’s SmartSpace platform by working with all stakeholders from initial vision through successful use. He brings the vision of the product to the market, helping evangelise this new category of spatial digitisation platform, and brings the vision of the market to the product, helping Ubisense align around a common goal.
Prior to joining Ubisense Jennings was CTO of Time Domain, a location technology provider for both civilian and military use. He is a recovering rocket scientist, and as designated UK intelligence expert spent three years as a missile consultant with the US Department of Defense. He received a master’s degree in physics from Oxford University and now finds himself bemusedly working for a Cambridge company.
Ubisense Smart Transit is designed to provide a real-time view of your bus and rail yard operations from a single easy to use web based interface. By combining industry leading precise location technology with a real-time software solution, transit and rail companies can achieve reliable, system-wide location down to the individual parking space for all of their vehicles, both indoors and outdoors.
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.
SmartSpace Process Control
Ubisense virtualises physical process controls and removes the constraints of traditionally fixed workstations. This frees up planning teams from fixed TAKT times and can better align process design with product complexity. Operational teams can quickly reconfigure and rebalance the line to rapidly react to product and process changes.
SmartSpace Process Monitor
SmartSpace continuously monitors the movement of WIP, tools and equipment throughout the production process, revealing real-world production flow and detecting deviations from plan. This instantaneous view of production reality enables operations teams to proactively optimise productivity and quality, while enabling continuous improvement teams to quickly identify process waste and instability.
SmartSpace Yard Monitor
SmartSpace Yard Monitor helps to solve a range of challenges caused by delays owing to yard audit and search.
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.
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.
