CYBRA Intros RFID-enabled Safety Solution for Real-Time Tracking of People, Assets

CYBRA Corp. has announced the introduction of Edgefinity IoT, a new software solution designed to meet complex requirements for safety and security in a range of industries.

Edgefinity IoT can be used at any site or location to address the complex safety and security needs of water-treatment plants and other utilities, as well as airports, mining facilities, office buildings and other sites. The solution combines active RFID hardware with real-time location system (RTLS) software and multi-sensor capabilities to securely monitor the health and safety of personnel and assets. It can issue alerts to ensure that safety incidents and hazards detected by the system are dealt with immediately and effectively. All alerts are logged, along with a full record of how they were handled, for later analysis.

"The world has gotten a lot more complex in just the past few years," said Harold Brand, CYBRA's CEO, in a prepared statement. "As an outgrowth of the proliferation of smartphones and the Internet of Things (IoT), there is a need and desire to stay connected no matter where you are. If you employ several lone workers, for example, being able to know they're ok at all times is a huge relief. And that, ultimately, is what Edgefinity IoT provides – complete peace of mind. In addition – it ensures compliance with legal mandates for worker safety."
