Ubisense partners with Quuppa to extend location-aware solutions

August 22, 2018 - Ubisense Group plc announced a partnership with Quuppa as part of Ubisense’s strategy to integrate location and identification technologies with its open and sensor-agnostic SmartSpace software platform, with the goal of enabling customers to create an enterprise-wide digital twin along the entire value chain of critical manufacturing activities.

SmartSpace allows customers to integrate a range of sensing capabilities to address different use cases and leverage existing location technology they may already be using. By working with Quuppa to support applications where the Quuppa Intelligent Locating System offers the best ROI, Ubisense also expects to extend the reach of SmartSpace further into the logistics, construction and healthcare markets.

Quuppa utilizes a combination of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and the Angle of Arrival (AoA) methodology, as well as advanced location algorithms that have been developed over the course of more than 15 years, to calculate real-time indoor positioning, even in demanding environments. The low-power system is a scalable solution for providing an accurate “dot on the map.” The Quuppa solution provides another powerful source of information to drive location-aware applications within Ubisense’s SmartSpace platform. It complements the many sensors already integrated with SmartSpace, including Ubisense’s own UWB location systems (Dimension 4 and AngleID), other third party location sensors, third-party passive RFID tag readers, and barcode systems.
