Partnership drives global tracking market
Sensor positioning and monitoring company, Omnisense Ltd, has forged a strategic alliance to accelerate the delivery of its technology to the global fleet, asset management and tracking markets.
Through its Series 500 platform, Omnisense has gained traction with companies operating in the dairy, industrial and safety and healthcare markets.
Andy Thurman, CEO of Omnisense said: “I am excited about the opportunity provided by this partnership to combine our innovative and cost effective local positioning technology with MECOMO's world-class service offering which meets the expanding needs of the site level vehicle logistics and tracking markets.”
Stefan Heimerl, CEO of MECOMO AG added: “Building on top of MECOMO’s leading suite of products with Omnisense gives us a significant competitive edge in the asset tracking market.
“MECOMO will integrate Omnisense's Real Time Location technology in our mecFLEET tracking platform. We believe this strategic partnership will bring significant commercial benefits to our existing and new customers in the logistics market.”
David Bartlett, chief technology officer of Omnisense, said the company’s patented Omnisense cluster relative positioning platform represented a large advance over alternative technology solutions for this particular market.
Omnisense and MECOMO are collaborating to offer a complete tracking service through the MECOMO mecFLEET platform, which utilises both GPS and Omnisense's unique local positioning capability to provide operators, for the first time, with 24/7 visibility where GPS is simply not accurate enough to meet customers' needs for effective utilisation of their fleetassets like vehicles, trailers and other moving objects on company grounds.
Omnisense’s revolutionary wireless sensor network tracks, positions and monitors behaviour of people, animals and all kinds of physical assets anywhere, to high levels of accuracy, without the need for permanent or pre-installed infrastructure
The Series 500 platform powers a new type of wireless sensor network in which each device knows where it is relative to other devices. When overlaid with a coordinate frame this provides absolute positions for all devices in the network
Omnisense is headquartered in Cambridge UK with presence across EMEA, the Americas and Australia.
