Positioning and cellular technologies unveiled for trackable pallet

Nikken Lease has tapped into cutting-edge positioning and cellular technologies from u-blox, a global specialist in wireless and positioning modules and chips, for its new trackable pallet, Transeeker.

Transeeker is a pallet equipped with u-blox’s cellular and positioning technologies for accurate tracking: u-blox cellular UMTS/HSPA(+) module LISA-U200-62S and u-blox 7 standalone GNSS module, EVA-7M. For the first time, Nikken Lease is offering their GNSS enabled pallets as a rental service. Made of plastic, the pallets are reusable and therefore a good ecological alternative to the wooden counterpart.

“When we designed Transeeker, we wanted to ensure that we could locate a pallet precisely and retrieve it nationwide at low costs for our customers,” said Mr. Tsumura, Director Planning of Nikken Lease. “u-blox is just the right partner with excellent product performance and unique features such as CellLocate.”

Embedded in Transeeker, the LISA-U200-62S of the LISA-U2 series is equipped with CellLocate, u-blox’s proprietary hybrid positioning technology enabling stand‑alone location estimation based on surrounding GSM/UMTS cell information in conjunction with GPS positioning data. The module also offers worldwide W‑CDMA(UMTS) and GPRS/EDGE coverage, and an easy migration to u‑blox GSM/GPRS, CDMA and LTE modules. Also found in Transeeker, the EVA-7M single GNSS module features the reliable performance of the u-blox 7 positioning engine (receiving GPS, GLONASS, QZSS and SBAS signals) and delivers high sensitivity and minimal acquisition times in the ultra-compact EVA form factor.

“This collaboration with Nikken Lease should help us strengthen our position in the Japanese market as a key player for IoT applications,” explains Tesshu Naka, Country Manager of u-blox Japan. “We are looking forward to more collaboration with Nikken Lease.”

The benefits of replacing plain old paper with e-paper displays in automotive assembly plants
Efficiency is at the heart of automation, and that is nowhere more apparent than in the manufacture of automobiles. The Ford Motor Company is widely credited with inventing the moving assembly line, but the concept of moving the assembly, rather than the worker, dates back centuries.
