Abstract:Since practically anything can now be obtained with the push of a button, a seamless logistics procedure is crucial to maintaining the level of convenience that society has become used to. Production facilities are inherently dynamic in the sense that their components are always in flux and subject to deviation from the original plan. As a result, there will be an even greater pressure to enhance various facets of the manufacturing processes. Modern production management requires data positioning inside the industrial system to provide real-time information for tracking and digitizing inputs and outputs. This paper explores the potential of how smart-metering and smart-tracking may be utilized to monitor assets within an industrial context, by means of Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), environmental sensors and an open-source dashboard. Surveys were conducted that consist of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), radio-frequency identification (RFID), WiFi, Ultra-wideband (UWB), 5G, and ZigBee technologies. It will also be performed on a number of localisation techniques. The following environmental variables will be monitored: temperature, relative humidity, noise, pressure, light, and carbon dioxide (CO2). The feasibility of integrating RTLS and environmental sensor outputs into an open-source dashboard to display relevant data was investigated.
