RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Two Raleigh-based Internet of Things startups, WISER Systems and TagoIO, will demo their location-based asset tracking solutions during an upcoming webinar hosted by IoT news publication Sensors Daily.
In the webinar, set for May 13 at 1 p.m. on Zoom, WISER Systems will show how its wireless location tracking system pairs with TagoIO‘s asset management software. This integration can serve many areas, such as aerospace maintenance and repair, work-in-progress tracking and logistics in manufacturing operations. But the most relevant use case to be presented in the webinar is the emerging demand for contact tracing in healthcare, a new necessity in the COVID-19 era.
WISER’s Redundant Radio Localization and Tracking (RRLT) system reports real-time location data through computers or mobile devices in manufacturing environments. TagoIO provides a system for businesses to keep track of their products through an IoT-connected cloud platform.
WISER Systems spokesperson Stephen Taylor says that the company will present a detailed example of how one of its customers pairs the locator solution with GPS to track municipal buses in a large midwest city.
“GPS gives our customer the buses’ real-time location as they move throughout the city, and then our solution gives a detailed and precise picture of bus locations even inside GPS-occluded garages,” Taylor says. “Having a constant picture of where the buses are, right down to an individual parking spot, helps save time and effort when vehicles need to be dispatched, cleaned and refueled.”
