To precisely track and protect workers‘ and machinery movements across plants, European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT Digital) was launching LumiTrack.
Hence, Philips Lighting, KSE and Indurad have decided to take advantage of the pre-existing lighting infrastructure (luminaire). There is the opportunity to integrate a tracking system as a new functionality. So lighting based anchor nodes with radio transceivers will be deployed on sites. Vehicles and personnel will be fit with radio tags that communicate their position to the nodes in real time, using highly precise distance measurements. Hereby, Metirionic has implemented its IEEE 802.15.4 radio technology.
