Trimble has licensed the BaseN Platform for new Industrial Internet of Things applications. BaseN’s secure and scalable architecture has allowed Trimble’s ThingMagic Division to realize faster time-to-market and lower operating costs for a new class of applications.
The first one, CrewSight, has recently been launched to enable process optimization with enhanced overall security at construction sites.
CrewSight provides full insight into a construction site. Every worker receives an RFID-enabled badge and is pre-registered into the system. An RFID reader captures a worker’s badge every time he enters or leaves the various sections of the construction site. Multiple construction sites can be seen from the same web portal, which makes supervision and monitoring remarkably efficient.
“Using BaseN’s powerful, secure and reliable industry-scale Internet of Things Platform, Trimble was able to develop a robust and comprehensive solution with an aggressive schedule”, says Satyan Shah, Technical Director at ThingMagic, A Division of Trimble. “We are looking forward to exploring other exclusive IoT opportunities for various industries together with BaseN.”
