Austrian IoT specialists PDi Digital, alongside their technology partner – Finnish RTLS market leader Quuppa – have announced the launch of a new technology for sepioo® displays. With the capability to distribute accurate, location-based information – with ultra-efficient power consumption – the innovation is a first in Industrial IoT and a key differentiator for PDi Digital on the market.
The integration of real-time, location-based information into readable digital displays is a giant leap forward, one that brings sepioo® displays beyond the competition. With the Quuppa-PDi solution providing accurate indoor location (complementing existing outdoor GPS positioning and indoor “zoning” capability), the result is a powerful blend of position sensing technologies at an affordable price point.
The extension into real-time location tracking makes sepioo® the market’s first locatable display – one that opens the door to countless use cases in industry. Whereas regular locatable tags can track asset position, sepioo® displays can now do this while enabling customers to display information on the asset as well.
Meanwhile, the sepioo® SaaS platform collects data to provide a digital map of real-time location and display information. This can be used to trigger automated actions when objects travel a defined distance, or if they enter or leave geofenced areas. Implementation is simple. Vastly improved position accuracy can be activated for existing installations of sepioo® displays.
Moving forward, both PDi Digital and Quuppa predict a huge potential value for location-based services, especially in the context of Industry 4.0. The sepioo® IoT displays combine accurate, real-time tracking with reliable information distribution, packaged in a durable, battery-powered device that promises to revolutionize digitalization.
“The future of digitalization will rely on having the right information, in the right place, at the right moment. With our sepioo® SaaS platform, our customers can use the power of location-based information to gain transparency and optimize processes.”Markus Rumpf, PDi Digital CTO
“We are thrilled to welcome PDi Digital to the Quuppa partner ecosystem. Adding the PDi Digital IoT Displays products to our Tag portfolio will open many new opportunities for us and our partners globally. We know there is high interest and demand for a fairly-priced tags with more intelligence in logistics, manufacturing, and retail sectors.”Sammy Loitto, Quuppa CEO
