Working in partnership with a leading stillage manufacturer Lowe UK, Pathfindr has developed a suite of flexible solutions that can be tailored to overcome these challenges. Importantly these solutions are also compatible with our wider asset-tracking suite of solutions.

Pathfindr develops Smart Stillage with Lowe UK

How does Smart Stillage tracking work?

With Smart Stillage, a Pathfindr asset tracker is attached to the Stillage. Depending on whether the Stillage needs to be tracked over a small area (indoor and outdoor) or over larger distances Bluetooth (BLE) or GPS can be used.

With BLE Beacons the asset is located and the data is uploaded to the Pathfindr Platform via a wireless Detector network. With our GPS+ 3 tracker this is done directly.

Smart Stillage Beacon

Why use a Smart Stillage?

Let’s say you lose a stillage designed to move car doors from zone 1 to zone 2. Not only do you have to replace it, but you also face the cost of not being able to move your doors. To avoid future issues, you might decide to purchase extra stillages, but then you have to deal with the space they take up.

Stillages can cost between £1- £10k a pop; when you factor in replacement costs, administration, and a lot of faffing – this all adds up. 

So why not just track them instead?

We have partnered with Lowe UK to create a special, secure compartment to house the beacon without affecting the stillage.
