Manufacturing

Production processes are complex and error-prone. So for a most efficient and smooth course you need to survey and control your work steps thoroughly. We at Advanced Realtime Tracking offer diverse technologies to control and optimize these processes:

Our marker-based optical tracking systems track the position of a tool. For instance, it determines where the tool is being used in the assembly process. A seperate application software notes the correct positions of the tool on the work schedule.


Ou markerless object detection solution CAPTA works with a camera system that views the assembly area. It detects and documents the position of a tool and tracks it. The best part of all: CAPTA also identifies work points even in hidden places.

Our localisation solution VERPOSE is a camera based system for hand-held assembly tools. Its intelligent image analysis software detects pre-defined assembly positions instantly. Even more: The application software can ensure that assembly sequences will be correctly performed.

Our three technologies can also be combined! As you can see: You can optimize your production steps and avoid mistakes with our sophisticated technologies!

 Improved process assurance and cost savings through:

  • Higher process reliability and minimization of errors in the assembly process.  
  • Reduction of rework rate.
  • Prevention of defects and thus greater flexibility of time for the worker.
  • The test setup is straightforward. Quick and easy training.
  • The modular systems can be adapted to a wide range of industrial requirements.

Case Studies

Tool Tracking Technologies by ART

...can support and optimize your production process

Imagine: Your entire production process is breezing along. It is being tracked. Problems are spotted at an early stage, and you achieve a complete monitoring of the entire operation.
