Ubisense and Alien Technology complete integration of precision RTLS with RFID at leading car manufacturer

Combined precision RTLS and RFID tags and readers enable automatic component and vehicle identification and location, using advanced UWB and Gen 2 UHF technologies

July 10th, 2008, Morgan Hill, Calif. and Cambridge, UK – Alien Technology, an industry leader in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) UHF products and services, and Ubisense, the industry leader in precise real-time location solutions, today announced the completion of customer field tests using combined RTLS/RFID for automotive production line component verification.

At the test site, it is critical to register the exact part numbers of critical components (for example air bags) as they are installed in each car. To achieve this automatically while minimizing human interaction and the chance of error or omission, Ubisense integrated standard Alien RFID readers into its Location Platform. This allows each assembly station to recognize the car through its industry standard VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) as it reaches the station and independently verifies which component has been added through the RFID integration. The Ubisense system automatically determines which car has entered a station, as the system is able to track and visualize each car along the assembly line to within 15cm. Ubisense, utilizing combined RTLS and RFID in automotive applications, will significantly reduce the cost and error rate of mounting critical components in a car as it is assembled, resulting in less costly manual rework and shorter cycle times.

“Combining RFID technology and precision RTLS has the potential to revolutionize automotive production,” said Richard Green, CEO of Ubisense. “Our engineers have been working with leading automotive manufacturers to develop this comprehensive solution and the feedback from our customers about the combination has been fantastic.”

“Working with an industry leader with an open real-time software platform made the integration effort very straight forward,” said Stephen Crocker, Director, Sales/Channel Management EMEA and India, Alien Technology Corp. “We see many more opportunities for this combination of technologies across a variety of industries.”
