Ubisense, Quuppa Partner on Industrial Location-Awareness Solutions

Ubisense Group, a provider of enterprise location intelligence solutions, has announced a partnership with Quuppa to integrate location and identification technologies with its open and sensor-agnostic SmartSpace software platform. This, according to the company, enables customers to create an enterprise-wide digital twin along the value chain of critical manufacturing activities.

The SmartSpace system creates a real-time, operational digital twin and uses it to change factory behavior based on the locations of tools, individuals and work-in-progress. SmartSpace allows customers to integrate a range of sensing capabilities to address different use cases and a wide range of ROIs, the company reports, and to leverage existing location technology they may already be using. By working with Quuppa to support applications with Quuppa's Intelligent Locating System, Ubisense expects to extend the reach of SmartSpace further into the logistics, construction and health-care markets.

Quuppa utilizes a combination of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and angle-of-arrival methodology, as well as location algorithms, to calculate real-time indoor positioning, even in demanding environments. The low-power system is customizable, scalable and cost-efficient for providing an accurate "dot on the map," the company reports. The Quuppa solution complements the sensors integrated with SmartSpace, including Ubisense's UWB location systems (Dimension 4 and AngleID), other third party location sensors, third-party passive RFID tag readers, and bar-code systems.

"One of the key benefits of our SmartSpace platform is the ability to integrate a wide range of data sources to facilitate building sensor-rich, industrial-scale systems, allowing us to propose the right location sensor technology for each application," said Andy Ward, Ubisense's CTO, in a prepared statement. "We're looking forward to seeing powerful additional use cases develop as customers explore our joint capabilities with Quuppa."

"The Quuppa Ecosystem—now 90 partners strong—continues to flourish, bringing the power of highly accurate, reliable and scalable location services to a growing number of companies across a variety of industries through our commitment to BLE technology," said Thomas Hasselman, Quuppa's chief marketing officer, in the prepared statement. "In partnering with Ubisense, we are delivering new opportunities to SmartSpace customers that are using location as a business driver."
