Semtech Corporation announced that Ineo-Sense has integrated Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology into its “Clover-Core” series of sensor products for smart asset tracking in manufacturing settings.
In addition, Ineo-Sense has signed a major contract with Lauak Group. The contract calls for 14,000 Ineo-Sense’s LoRa-enabled asset tracking sensors to one of Lauak’s assembly sites in France. The sensors will be integrated in fourteen thousand of Lauak’s manufacturing containers for accurate monitoring of the parts, which are constantly in transit throughout the large manufacturing facilities.
“Semtech’s LoRa Technology allows production managers and engineers to remotely monitor the use, status, functionality, and location of expensive manufacturing assets in real-time,” said Olivier Guilbaud, Founder and CEO of Ineo-Sense. “Previously, there was no way to effectively do this in a manufacturing setting, leaving companies to track assets themselves at facilities which can often be over 100,000 sq. ft. in area. With the help of our LoRa-based sensors, they are now able to do this remotely and accurately without the risk of a costly human error, resulting in a large drop in cost of energy and time, as well as operational cost for the facility.”
“Ineo-Sense recognized the benefits and opportunities of creating its sensor products with LoRa Technology since it offers proven reliability with flexible, long-range capabilities,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President of IoT for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “According to industry research, the asset tracking market is expected to grow 27.1 billion by 2023 and LoRa is positioned to be the ideal platform for this industry. Tracking crucial asset data and diagnostics across entire grids, fleets and networks is simple with a LoRaWAN-based network infrastructure that is scalable and easy to deploy.”
