Aston Martin Knows Precisely Where Their Cars Are in Production in Real-Time With Ubisense



by Nick Palmen

Aston Martin, the prestigious sports car manufacturer, is using the Ubisense precise real-time location system in its daily production operations at the company's headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

The Ubisense system enhances already rigorous off-line finishing processes, through analysis and optimisation of each process, ensuring its efficiency at all times.

Ubisense tags are attached inside the windscreen of the prestigious cars as they begin their off-line finishing process. From that moment on, Ubisense Process Tracker provides production engineers complete visibility of each Aston Martin as it progresses through the facility. The tags are only removed when the car is dispatched to sales.

Using a web browser, a production engineer can locate any car on a map, and watch its progress in real-time. They can also view a log of which process steps a car has been through and the time spent in each step. An alert is raised immediately if a car deviates from the process. The system operates over a standard network and is managed day to day by internal Aston Martin production employees.

Richard Green, CEO of Ubisense, says "We are very proud to have installed this bespoke system within Aston Martin, one of the worlds leading sports car manufacturers. We work with many automotive and manufacturing companies demonstrating the accuracy and strength of our system."
