Tracking a forklift inside a warehouse is a challenge. BeSpoon has built a dedicated solution that delivers high precision tracking both in the docks, where 2D positioning is required) and along the aisles. Our map matching toolkit allowed to drastically reduce the number of Anchors needed, which resulted in substantial savings.
Our Location system typically achieves the following performances with this kind of setup:
- Track 14 forklifts @ 4Hz (one precise position is computed every 250ms)
- Track 1680 tools / boxes every 30s
These numbers take into account the highly metallic environment of a warehouse, see below.
