It is important to track indoor forklifts, carts, AGVs and other vehicles for various purposes:
Overall, it is the best and the safest choice, when you are not sure what to choose or what exact experiments you will run, but you want to have the easiest solution with the greatest flexibility and the greatest performance at the same time.
The easiest and recommended configuration consists of Super-Beacons-Outdoor and Modem-Outdoor.
The least expensive configuration:
You will get a 2D tracking in one submap with a maximum distance
Industrial Super-Beacons and Super-Modem is recommended, when you have to operate indoor and outdoor, work with temperatures below 0C (Industrial beacons do not have embedded batteries that could fail in sub-zero temperatures) or need industrial connectivity such as RS485 or CAN.
Recommended minimum configuration:
However, Super-Modem is more complex to use:
Industrial environment is often radio propagation unfriendly:
Therefore, we recommend to use full-size antennas. They can’t solve radio problems, but minimize the chances to have them.
In some cases, special directional antennas on the modem side or on the farther-end beacons can be recommended.
For even larger cases, we recommend Multi-Modem configurations. Each Super-Modem is responsible for its map. And they send their data to a Super-Super-Modem that units maps into a super-map that is seen by the end user as a seamless map. See more about the Multi-Modem configurations in the Presentation.
