Business value Solution Opportunity INDOOR & OUTDOOR ASSET TRACKING FOR AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY Rapid rollout with accurate indoor & outdoor geolocation using Abeeway tracker technology. Harsh temperature and RF industrial conditions where Wi-Fi and LoRaWAN® macro-diversity was key to achieve QoS. • Volvo, Abeeway, Actility and HERE Technologies collaborated to build the indoor tracking infrastructure leveraging Wi-Fi fingerprinting technology and an industrial grade LoRaWAN® network. • Abeeway's industrial trackers collected the Wi-Fi AP information and relayed the measurements over LoRaWAN® for [SM1] accurate position determination by HERE. • The main challenges of the project were the usage conditions (+70°C when racks go through the painting process) and 5m target location accuracy. • In the Venissieux Volvo Trucks factory, hundreds of special racks are used to carry engines along the production chain, spreading over 25,000 sq. meters fully covered by 60 Wi-Fi Aps. • Assets can easily get lost in such a large facility causing blockages to the entire production chain.
