Key Features

Use Cases

  • Return work-in-progress to the production line to reduce delays - Return WIP or equipment back to production to prevent unnecessary delays. - Use existing Meraki infrastructure with Wi-Fi or BLE tags - Eliminate buffer stock used to coverup inefficiency.
  • Track inventory and vehicles in outdoor lots - Using the latest BLE 5.0 technology, read a tag on a vehicle on the opposite side of the 20 acre lot. - The tag's GPS receiver wakes when motion stops to snap coordinates which are backhauled across the lot using BLE 5.0 to an outdoor access point on the side of the building.
  • Reduce over-provisioning of equipment that might be hoarded or misplaced - Setup Par Level rules to alert to low or excess inventory. Identify hoarding based on location, proximity, or idle time.
  • Wireless ID replaces the need for handheld scanners - A production line of 90 cells replaced the handheld scanners used to display build instructions for that particular product. - BLE tags attached to the product wirelessly identified the product which triggered the push of the build instructions. - Time-motion studies justified the cost in only 6 months.
  • Manage perishable inventory based on FIFO practices - expensive inventory like prepreg used for fighter jet panels must be used before expiration dates. - BLE tags on the refrigerated rolls are read and associated with the expiration dates. - Prepreg inventory is pulled FIFO fashion and alerts are generated if expired product is pulled.
  • Ensure contaminated or broken equipment is not returned to use until addressed - Buttons on the tags are programable to indicate when equipment is out of use and needs maintenance. - An alert is generated if the equipment is returned to service before a second button is pushed indicating it is ready.
  • Automate accounting of frequently moved inventory & equipment - test harnesses used in avionics are portable and expensive. - Placing a tag under the foam in the case allows tracking to identify its paths over time and utilization.
  • Integrate asset tracking insights with common business applications to extend the value of your IT investments. - With REST, web and streaming APIs, integration with back office apps and even Internet data like weather can be used to facilitate process flow.
  • Passive RFID solutions are also available to complement any RTLS deployment - Many deployments require a combination of passive RFID and active RTLS solutions. - As a sensor agnostic platform, AiRISTA Flow consumes info from passive tags to create a holistic view of all your processes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Unified Vision can be deployed in your data center, in a private cloud, or delivered as a private instance from our cloud provider.
Battery life is dependent on the radio and its chirp rate. A Wi-Fi tag that chirps many times per minute will last a couple months. With a longer chirp rate (>1min), the battery should last a year or more. BLE batteries will last several years (unless the chirp rate is every second or two in which case batteries will last <1 year).
Absolutely. In fact AiRISTA Flow resells passive solutions to deliver a hybrid solution with a single source for support.
Yes. Custom workflows can be developed by non-technical staff using pull down menus. For more sophisticated workflows, a scripting interface is provided.
Unified Vision is fully IoT ready. It is written in the language Go making it AI-ready. It is a streaming broker-based architecture capable of nearly 2 million records per second. The streaming interface makes it ideal for machine-learning and performs data transformations on the fly.
