Press release from: Ubisense

Cambridge, UK / Stockholm, Sweden Nov 6th 2009 Ubisense, the world Leader in precise Real-time Location Systems, and Atlas Copco Industrial Technique, the world-leading provider of industrial productivity solutions, are collaborating in the research and development of real-time locations systems for industrial tooling.

"Collaborating with the world's leading precise real-time location system provider will allow us to continue to develop innovative solutions for our customers who wish to significantly increase their productivity and quality in these tough economic times," explains Anders Lindquist, President MVI Division at Atlas Copco Industrial Technique. "We became aware of the potential of the Ubisense approach to real-time location at our mutual customer, BMW in Regensburg, Germany. Subsequent discussions with potential customers for this type of technology not only in the Motor Vehicles market but also in aerospace, mining and construction equipment as well as discrete manufacturing led us to the idea of pooling our knowledge and resources to create a new family of solutions for our customers."

The Ubisense system is installed in the production facilities of companies such as BMW, Aston Martin, Caterpillar and Honda. The application at BMW called LIS/TAS involves tracking the industrial tools used on the final assembly line and loading the correct program into the tool automatically based on the specific vehicle being worked upon.

"The introduction of LIS/TAS has resulted in the elimination of the need to scan vehicles in order to identify them", comments Andreas Lehner, project manager at BMW in Regensburg. "All the project objectives have been met on time and within the planned budget. From the standpoint of value creation, the project is a complete success".

"This unique relationship allows Atlas Copco Industrial Technique and Ubisense to investigate the key innovations that will drive the next set of standards for use in manufacturing production and enable significant process improvements", comments Terry Phebey, VP Sales Ubisense.
