Libelium, specialized in IoT technology, launches the first complete solution for smart tracking projects that includes both GPS battery-powered devices and the data management software platform.
With the aim of accelerating the digitalization of companies to improve their competitiveness, Libelium adds this smart tracking technology to its portfolio of solutions. The aim is to improve companies’ asset and goods management while reducing costs and avoiding losses.
Industries from all sectors such as construction, logistics, transportation services, mining, energy infrastructure, supply chain management, or asset management are the big beneficiaries of this smart tracking technology. These markets demand the most robust and accurate battery-powered GPS trackers to provide location and movement history, utilization reports, pre-sales maintenance monitoring, misuse or abuse alerts, and more applications with a single and easy tool.
“In an increasingly demanding IoT market, Libelium confirms its ability to offer customers complete solutions that go beyond hardware devices according to the strategic shift the company is making,” says CEO Alicia Asín. “For many industries including manufacturing, supply chain, and others, the ability to track assets unlocks insights that enable companies to reduce operational costs, automate workflows, and squeeze the most value from existing assets. The three main business drivers that these industries are demanding to revolve around preventing loss and theft, enhancing operational efficiency, and optimizing product life cycles,” states Asín.
Libelium’s complete offer for this smart tracking solution includes both the configuration and management of the devices and the integration and configuration of the data in a software platform tailored to each client.
Libelium Smart Tracking functionalities
The most highlighted functionalities that the tracking platform offers cover the possibility of obtaining reports to locate assets with the trip history to monitor routes, mileage, idle time, average speed, etc. It is also possible to configure the recovery mode in case of loss, theft, or unauthorized use, and analyze asset utilization to optimize usage, reduce downtime and increase its life. The platform can even set actionable alerts (after-hours movement, accident detected, speeding alert), set boundaries with geofencing tools, and schedule preventative maintenance and reminders.
The new trackers offered by Libelium have been tested in the laboratory and in the field, and have been subjected to the most demanding tests of accuracy, reliability, and robustness to be used in the most demanding remote monitoring projects. Besides accuracy, asset tracking requires long-range/dense coverage and low power consumption, two specific features of the devices integrated by Libelium.
A Spanish company that transports pallets for food distribution chains is using this technology in a smart tracking project developed by Libelium. The objective is to monitor the location of the trucks to control how long they stay stopped at each unloading of goods. In this way, the logistics company can negotiate the application of penalties when the loading and unloading times of the goods in the trucks exceed the expected time.
To speed the adoption of this technology, Libelium offers the first kits ready to use through The IoT Marketplace in order to deploy tracking pilot projects including the devices and the tracking platform configuration service.
