Sensfix will collaborate with Wayra subsidiary Telefónica Group on a global 5G connected industrial implementation of Sensfix technology. Wayra UK Ltd., which manages the 5PRING Manufacturing Accelerator program, has approved Sensfix to join the 5PRING program, which aims to help businesses develop and scale. The initiative offers Sensfix a facility to utilize and test 5G-based application use cases and enhance our current solution to address the needs of the industry 4.0.

To date, Sensfix has initiated 5G proof of concepts with partners that include Miele and Ericsson. One of the 5G case studies was the 5G linked factory, which used IoT and AI to provide maintenance, repairs, and operations as-a-service (MROaaS).

The Sens-Facility Suite is our flagship solution for 5G-connected facilities that leverages IoT and AI. It is a corporate SaaS package that includes completely automated operations & maintenance features:

  • 5G indoor positioning and tracking solution for asset tracking with collision detection for forklifts
  • Asset tracking of boxes/pallets and real-time inventory management
  • Geo-fencing to keep expensive tools on-site
  • Predictive maintenance and automated service-lifecycle management for industrial motors

Our cloud technology can use the 5G network to connect third-party IoT, digital twin, and AR/VR technologies for real-time automated operations and maintenance. It enables any stakeholder to view or receive an alert if a forklift, for example, has recently contacted anything.

How do Sensfix asset tags function? They are mounted on palettes and other containers that transport spare parts or raw materials for manufacturing. They can also be installed on specified tools whose geo-location is critical for the safe and secure running of the production plant. When these tools are relocated away from their expected position, relevant parties are notified.

We are grateful for the chance to participate in the program and to expand our platform in collaboration with Wayra and program partners WM5G, O2, Deloitte, and the Digital Catapult.
