Last month we have dedicated most of our posts/analysis to Apple’s new product: the AirTag. More specifically, we have discussed the underlying concept of the Digital Twin, the use cases beyond lost & found and the limitations of current technologies. If you are unfamiliar with the Digital Twin concept and technology those articles are definitely worth a read. Forkbeard’s expertise in Indoor Positioning Systems using ultrasonic and Bluetooth Low Energy signals gives the company an edge when it comes to developing Digital Twin solutions. Below is a brief overview of the problem, the solution and Forkbeard’s secret.

The Problem

With the increasing pace and complexity of workplace and production processes, companies require tools to cut through the jungle of interactions between humans and devices across locations and time. Digital Twin technologies can help lift companies to the birds-eye perspective. They help to create a real-time overview or a historic replay of physical interactions between humans and objects across time and location using mobile phones and tags. However, the majority of the technologies are still maturing, trying to solve some fundamental challenges. These include improving the performance of the hardware (tags), creating operating system independent solutions and enabling in background/locked screen capabilities.

The Solution

Forkbeard has been able to solve 3 limitations current Digital Twin solutions struggle with, allowing us to deliver a unique value proposition.

To prevent traceability and minimize cybersecurity threats we use secure and randomized IDs. This allows Forkbeard to safely record human/object interactions and their distances across locations over time.

The Secret

What is our secret? Well, we just spent longer than most others working on an adjacent problem, indoor positioning. Forkbeard is the brainchild of Sonitor engineers who have spent 20+ years developing indoor positioning technology based on ultrasound and Bluetooth Low Energy technology. We have some great people relentlessly working on a problem they are truly passionate about.

Seems too good to be true? Contact us and we’ll make sure to demo you the capabilities of our Digital Twin solution.
