Ubisense Group plc (AIM:UBI), the global leader in enterprise location intelligence solutions, has received Mexican approval for its Dimension4 Ultra-wideband (UWB) real time location system following high demand from manufacturers with plants in the region.
Ubisense already works with many of the world’s leading manufacturers in aerospace and automotive, as well as general industry, including nine of the top ten automotive manufacturers and aerospace customers including Airbus and Lockheed Martin.
Mexico has been a major focus for manufacturing investment in recent years. More than $20 billion has been invested in automotive manufacturing by companies that include existing Ubisense customers such as Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Honda, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen. Aerospace is also an increasingly important industry for Mexico - between 2010 and 2014 the average Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate of the industry was around 21%.
Ubisense Dimension4 (D4) is a best-in-class precision Real-Time Location System (RTLS), consisting of hardware, firmware and server-based software components that work together to locate people and objects inside buildings, to provide visibility and control of industrial processes. D4 has become the most widely-deployed, high-accuracy and production-proven location system in the world, and is the only UWB RTLS to accurately measure angles, providing far higher redundancy and precision in like-for-like configurations than any other UWB RTLS. D4 is a proven solution, with some individual systems consisting of more than a thousand sensors working seamlessly together and providing machine-level, real-time response.
Andy Ward, CTO at Ubisense, said: “Our UWB systems are already certified for use in Europe, the US, Canada, Japan, Korea, China and Singapore, and Mexico was the obvious next step for us. With growing demand from existing and new customers in the country, we are looking forward to helping them benefit from what we believe to be the best UWB RTLS on the market, and the first to receive certification in Mexico.”
 According to Forbes 2015
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.
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.
