We have developed a project that will digitize these processes, taking into account different variables such as the inflexibility of the workplace, the complex structure of communication and asset management, and the difficulty of ensuring occupational health and safety. Our project, built on safety and efficiency, provides many benefits to our customers in their business processes. Beyond a standard asset tracking network, it digitizes and digitizes operations, offering privileges such as instant intervention, instant monitoring, and accurate data management. Another important feature of our project is that it is the first application made within the scope of digitization of the operation in the mine with UWB-based Active RFID… All these privileges brought us the first place in the RFID Journal 2021 Awards.”
