HERE Technologies is partnering with Siemens Healthineers for HERE Tracking technology to allow engineers to follow the location of service parts during transit and after delivery inside a hospital and monitor their condition in real-time.
The Customer Services unit of Siemens Healthineers, with 1 million annual service part deliveries, has a labyrinth of warehouses, hospitals and laboratories to monitor to ensure on-time availability of parts for company engineers.
As part of the project, a smart sensor tracking device was developed to complete shipment condition monitoring, include global connectivity and the ability to record data when offline, the company said. Other features include tracking and monitoring of location, condition and ETA of medical equipment service parts.
- Siemens Healthineers submitted requirements for tracking and monitoring to HERE, which then developed the shipment delivery product.
- Most of these indoor location and monitoring partnerships seem to be originating in Europe lately.
- This product will be used by Siemens in Europe, first for ground transportation, and then air carriers later in 2021. Worldwide roll out will be in 2022.
