Automotive company Continental is leveraging precise location data, integrated systems and a digital twin of its plant in Rubi Spain, near Barcelona, with an ultra-wideband (UWB) Internet of Things (IoT) solution. The solution automatically integrates data derived from multiple systems within the plant to detect events in real time, as well as provide instructions to assembly and maintenance personnel and prevent production delays. Learn how the system utilizes UWB sensors on automatic guided vehicles to capture data that automates alerts and instructions for workers on smart wristbands based on the movements of tagged vehicles and other assets, while enabling the use of a facility’s digital twin. In addition, hear how Continental is now considering expanding the technology’s use to other facilities.
