As the world’s industrial plants modernize with more and more digitalization and automation, an
increasingly critical question is emerging about their assets used in production and logistics: “What’s
where, when?” And, even more importantly, in terms of worker safety, is this: “Who’s where, when?”
Our SIMATIC RTLS technology can seamlessly locate all physical objects and personnel – workpieces,
tools, even vehicles or robots – in real-time and within inches, whether at rest or in motion!
RTLS can also feed data into higher-level MES and ERP systems for issuing alerts, alarms, or
commands. Plant and logistics operators can use RTLS data to increase efficiency, visibility, and safety.
At the same time, it can complete the picture of digital twins for production processes by providing
dynamic location data in real-time.
