The Utility of Voice Collection in Extreme Environments

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on May 31, 2018 7:00:00 AM

On a recent visit to a global metalworks facility on the East Coast, our team discovered something that forgers and steel operations, which are known for a work environment dealing with extreme heat, have in common with cold storage and frozen operations. 

At first glance, you would assume that there is nothing these two environments have in common. After all, no one packs a bag the same way for a ski vacation and a beach vacation. And if challenged to identify a common solution between an ice cream storage facility and a rolled steel mill, we’d probably be hard-pressed to think of one. But there is a big one.

What they have in common is Gloves.

The Fishy Side of RFID Technology

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Apr 3, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Go Fish? Not so fast!

In 2003, investigators in Australia solved an illegal poaching operation using RFID chips. The fish (which were already caught and on shore) had RFID chips inserted into them, and when the unsuspecting fish-burglars took the bait and made off with the “catch,” they soon found themselves up to their gills in legal trouble.

While this early innovation was a creative way to use RFID on a fish, since that time others have been looking at more positive ways that have a more productive objective, though with the fish remaining as in demand as ever.

Wireless Goes Where the Hardhat Doesn’t

Construction Site Safety

Construction jobs are inherently dangerous. The mixture of heavy machinery, deep holes, extreme heights, concrete, steel beams, chemicals, etc. is always going to create the potential for all types of injuries and even fatalities. In 2014 in the US alone, there were nearly 5,000 fatal occupational injuries, of which construction led with 17% of the total despite employing only 6% of the workforce in the evaluation. The most common worksite hazards for construction workers were workplace falls, electrocution, being struck by objects or being caught between two objects.
