Sewio Networks is a young company from Brno with a strong potential and even greater ambitions. This company develops unique wireless Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) technology which is used for indoor vehicle tracking, machinery control and worker´s movement all in real time.“We are increasing accuracy, simplifying installation, so Sewio can offer reliable localization platform ready for additional development of other specialized applications and services“ mentions co-founder Milan Simek. Up to now Sewio found the greatest business potential for use in following sectors: manufacture, logistics, retail and sport.
Sewio Applies RTLS Platform in Various Industry Sectors All Around the World
Current customers of Sewio are using RTLS platform for optimization throught indoor equipment tracking and staff and vehicles tracking. This way companies are able to find easy way to improve safety and reduce loss caused by human errors and to prevent frequent collisions in the warehouse and production areas (e.g. forklifts collisions prevented by forklift tracking and employee location tracking).
In logistics Sewio is progressing farther with his partner from USA they are working on development of smart glasses with a build-in navigation technology which effectively reduces the error rate of warehouse workers.
Retail is another area where location data brings revolutionizing potential. After installing Sewio´s hardware devices in shopping area and fixing individual locators on shopping carts is is possible to generate accurate data revealing customer behavior that serves as a valuable database for other applications used for marketing and sales strategies. One of the partner of Sewio in Italy is now able to create accurate maps of customer motion.
Precise indoor localization can bring very valuable data describing physical performance of professional athletes used for further analysis but indoor localization has commercial application in an entertainment industry.
