Quuppa to Host Partner Event for Indoor Location Services

Quuppa, a provider of indoor-positioning technology, has announced that its second annual partner event will take place on June 5-7 in Helsinki, Finland. With a theme of "Defining the Future," the event will feature speakers from Quuppa and its partner ecosystem, networking events and a Solutions Showcase Expo that will demonstrate the current and future capabilities of real-time, global indoor-location services and solutions.

The event will highlight case-study presentations showcasing use cases for Quuppa's indoor-location technology. Featured topics will include improving efficiency and customer experience in retail, asset tracking in large scale, Industry 4.0, manufacturing use cases from Japan, safety in a secure environment, generating business KPIs from location data, and employee safety indoors and outdoors.

Quuppa utilizes a combination of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and angle-of-arrival (AoA) methodologies, as well as location algorithms, to calculate indoor positioning. "Quuppa's ecosystem continues to thrive, and our partner event is a place to gather and share expertise and best practices for global indoor location services," said Fabio Belloni, the head of Quuppa's Partner Ecosystem, in a prepared statement.

"What we are seeing more of as the ecosystem expands is partner companies seeking answers from their peers—not just from Quuppa—on wide-ranging topics such as how to launch a large-scale deployment, how to forge partnerships to grow in new geographic areas, how to best conduct a demo, and more," Belloni added in the prepared statement. "Companies are realizing they no longer need to develop everything on their own, they can choose best-of-breed solutions from our incredible ecosystem partners. It's amazing to see how quickly the Quuppa Ecosystem is growing and the unique partnerships that are forming because of it."

One such partnership that has emerged within the Quuppa Ecosystem is between Japanese motor manufacturer Nidec Corp. and Synapses Lab, an Italian technology design firm. The companies work together utilizing Quuppa's precision location technology, Synapses' platform for tracking and 3D modeling, and Nidec's electronics and engineering expertise to develop autonomous solutions intended to improve productivity and security in the manufacturing industry.

"Building a solid and reliable ecosystem is essential for our company," said Domenico Mariotti, Synapses' CEO and co-founder, in the prepared statement. "Such a system enables us to tackle new challenges and different use cases every day, sometimes beating any expectations we ourselves had for our solutions."

"In the Japanese manufacturing industry, some early birds are now trying to introduce IoT to their factories," added Hiroshi Mochizuki, from Nidec's Small Precision Motor and Solutions business unit, in the prepared statement. "They do not allow position data to have jitter, so Nidec decided to select Synapses' platform utilizing the Quuppa Ecosystem. Synapses has successfully developed its platform, of which the filtering capability and database structure is duly optimized for Quuppa's technology."
