An entirely new micro-location technology built to optimize labor productivity and worker safety
VPS IN ACTION
HOW IT WORKS
GEOFENCE THE SPACES
The 100% wireless BLE mesh network creates geofences in spaces of any size, indoors or out. We use our software and sensors to create a virtual map and then track all activity inside each geofence.
GENERATE MICRO-LOCATION DATA
Every few seconds, wearable sensors produce packets of data that include the precise three-dimensional location of each sensor.
GET ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS
Sensors publish the data packets to the mesh network through relay sensors that deliver them instantly to our analytics engine. Micro-location data is processed and secured in an encrypted analytics database.
WHY VOLAN POSITIONING SYSTEM (VPS)?
VPS is a private and independent BLE 5 mesh network providing the flexibility to implement in any space, indoors or outside.
Patented technology automatically forms and reforms its own dynamic wireless mesh network.
Self-healing network – if one network sensor fails, another sensor mends the connection, and data is never lost.
Automated digital geofencing allows for easy installation and integration.
Micro-movement trend analysis to understand movement patterns
Zone-level positioning insights for occupancy rostering and digital barrier zones
Live floor plan visualization with heat map views
Private By Design
Volan wearable sensors do not record, transmit or store any personally identifiable information – ever.
AES-256 data encryption is the highest possible level of encryption.
No dependency on WiFi, GPS, or smartphones.
A Fortune 500 manufacturer used Volan to uncover a 54% average difference between estimated vs. actual cost of labor by SKU. This insight enabled the company to reprice product lines and greatly improve margin by SKU.
WHY BLUETOOTH LOW ENERGY?
Bluetooth Low Energy avoids interference from other wireless devices.
Bluetooth Low Energy has lower power consumption than regular Bluetooth.
No line of sight means it can connect through any obstacles.
Bluetooth devices are far more cost-effective.
Bluetooth has a better range than infrared communication.
Manufacturers today are faced with more challenges than ever in seeking higher operational efficiency in an increasingly competitive market. Location intelligence is changing how businesses operate, from optimizing profit margins to ensuring safety compliance. Location intelligence software can help your company improve efficiency, reduce unproductive hours and increase profits. Location intelligence is the use of geospatial data to identify and solve business problems.
We have written a white paper 7 Technologies To Achieve Industry 4.0 Innovation, Today outlining critical technologies that manufacturing and warehousing companies can implement to drive innovation, improve efficiency, reduce costs and increase profits. Together with the white paper, we have included one of our successful customer case studies and a brief company overview.
