Pervasive Technologies Tracktio Partners para mejorar seguridad IA

Pervasive Technologies and Tracktio merge their technologies for asset control

  • Both companies will combine their tracking and image recognition capabilities to improve security in industrial environments.
  • This strategic alliance enables the development of new solutions for the traceability of objects and subjects in different sectors and work environments.

Pervasive Technologies, a company specialized in the development of Artificial Intelligence solutions, and Tracktio, developer of tracking and geolocation software to improve productivity and security in industrial sectors, have announced their decision to join knowledge and technologies to create an advanced detection and tracking solution for people, vehicles and assets, which generates safer workspaces in industrial environments.

The combination of Pervasive Technologies’ image recognition systems with Tracktio’s location and tracking devices creates a comprehensive, detailed and up-to-date view of business operations, enriched by the collection of relevant information in real time.

The feedback from both technologies creates a wide range of possibilities, including the detection and tracking of assets – anything that moves in an industrial environment – whether they are people, objects or vehicles. In this way, the client obtains precise key performance indicators (KPIs), as well as centralized and combined dashboards, which make it possible to detect whether objects are arranged correctly, whether there are elements in hazardous areas or whether the company’s specific rules are being respected, with the possibility of sending real-time alerts to avoid possible accidents.

Beyond the industrial environment, people counting and flow tracking, thanks to tracking devices and cameras, can also be used to avoid capacity problems sufficiently in advance or to find objects and people, among other uses. On the other hand, these functionalities are visible through Tracktio’s TrackSphere platform, a software dedicated to the physical reconstruction of environments through maps and diagrams, workflows adaptable to any facility regardless of its activity.

“The union of Pervasive Technologies and Tracktio allows us to create plans and work environments based on updated information and real experience, which makes them more efficient and secure”, highlights Rodolfo Lomascolo, CEO and co-founder of Pervasive Technologies.

Fran Pinyol, co-founder and director of Tracktio, declares that “the Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and vision capabilities of Pervasive Technologies bring us many synergies in customers, and of course, our partners increase their business opportunities”.

AI in the supermarket Pervasive Technologies

Artificial intelligence in supermarkets: the road to a more human experience

First it was homes, then phones, and now it’s the turn of smart supermarkets. The shopping experience is already benefiting from Artificial Intelligence in an advance that favors both the consumer and the brands and establishments.

Behind the placement of products on supermarket shelves there is a whole marketing strategy. According to studies, 52% of consumer perception is directed to the products that are placed in front of their eyes, and 26% to what is within reach of their hands. Store managers are well aware of this data and have been trying for years to capture the attention and loyalty of their customers by facilitating the purchasing process. The novelty introduced by Artificial Intelligence is that it makes it possible to know this type of data in real time and, in addition, to predict future behavior.

One of the most promising AI capabilities in the retail sector is to create more human and personalized user experiences by analyzing and streamlining processes while making employees’ jobs easier. According to the consulting firm IDC, 50% of the most mature supply chains are already using AI in their processes by 2020.

Some large chains such as Carrefour or Walmart are already benefiting from the advantages that this cutting-edge technology brings to their businesses in areas such as theft control or inventory management. Artificial intelligence solutions such as our CPG Analytics open up a whole world of possibilities for businesses that make the decision to implement it in their work, but where to start, without losing sight of the main objective, the customer?

The first factor that can greatly benefit from AI is stock management, as it prevents both product depletion and wastage of perishable foods in advance, thus creating a more sustainable store.

The organization of the shelves is another potential point of improvement, since with the analysis of images in real time it is possible to check immediately and accurately that the products indicated have the correct quantity, position and price, facilitating and speeding up the work of the stockers, as well as eliminating possible human errors.

Beyond the logistical level, image capture makes it possible to study in depth the shelves and the interaction of customers with them in order to optimize the layout of the store, making it more human, intelligent and adapted to the customer.

All these advances and digital strategies are helping us to move towards an improved, personalized and updated shopping experience, as well as an environment that responds in a real and effective way to our needs.
