The words “construction industry” typically incite images of large machinery and, at times, even outdated equipment. But global IoT leader, Trackunit, knew that to serve its customers best, it needed to infuse new ideas into its fleet asset management offerings that not only relied on hardware, but also on the latest IoT software.
Silicon Labs’ Bluetooth 5.2 SoCs were instrumental in Trackunit’s Kin, a tag that helps connect the entire construction fleet through one simple platform. The Bluetooth 5.2 SoCs:
In return, Kin helps eliminate downtime by finding items exponentially faster – something that might sound like a small feat but isn’t: the amount of time that Trackunit’s customers spend searching for small assets in large construction sites usually translates to extreme delay in schedules and overblown budget.
While construction is currently the third largest industry in the world, it’s also typically slower to adopt new technology. So, Trackunit filled a massive void when it deployed Trackunit Kin in 2020, tackling the needs of its main customers: rental companies, machine manufacturers and contractors.
Trackunit Kin is simple to install and connect, and interfaces with Trackunit’s secure, open, cloud-based productivity platform Iris. Not only does it provide clear identification by locating assets via visible LED pulses, but it also offers unparalleled data that allow each of these consumers to glean valuable insights:
Small but mighty, Trackunit Kin can serve customers and use cases throughout the world, making it one of the most versatile assets in the construction industry. Additionally, it features:
In Silicon Labs, Trackunit found more than a supplier: they found a partner that understood its roadmap and vision from inception and gave Trackunit the tools they needed to make Trackunit Kin a pioneer in asset tracking and monitoring.
Given success, Trackunit is not afraid of growth. One of its main focuses will be to drive true IoT innovation in construction by ramping up equipment and asset connectivity, driving a true integration journey.
Their goal is to digitize a new era of construction by helping their customers solve problems through the simplicity of data.
