Analytics & Location-Aware Wireless Sensors Eye IIoT Apps

Nanotron Technologies’ latest analytics products are said to fill the gap between raw sensor and location data and business applications by automatically extracting event information in real-time. Position data is collected and augmented using application context information. Insights into complex business processes are the direct output. Data is transformed into actionable, powerful insights and profitable knowledge.


The company’s 360° Edge Analytics solution is the first of an entire portfolio of analytics tools and a line of location-aware wireless sensors suitable for verticals including mining, manufacturing and healthcare. Nanotron’s 360° Edge Analytics solution processes data from any sensor in conjunction with any location radio technology. Location-aware sensors – sensors who are also able to report their location are increasingly important for distributed data acquisition such as sensing gases across extended areas in the mining industry.

The location-aware sensors are built on the company’s established and time-proven tag-ready swarm bee smart RF modules that use a common API. Ready-made anchors allow for easy to install scalable IoT infrastructure. The powerful set of available deployment and productivity tools enables customers to smoothly and easily scale up to increase the number of tracked objects and the size of the monitored area. Offering a per-node coverage range of up to 500 meters, the solution tracks objects with an accuracy down to 10 cm. It leverages the advantages of concurrent data communication, ranging and tracking and provides an extremely power-efficient approach for extended battery life of mobile devices.


Users can start with straightforward functions such as automatic collision warning and real-time tracking. More sophisticated and powerful sensing and location-awareness capabilities can be added to the existing deployment right away or at an appropriate time in the future. Step-by-step implementation simplifies the deployment process as well as software integration thus minimizing time to market. For more info, visit nanotron.
