Ichthys RFID Tracking Project
ATP Solutions was contracted to provide an active RFID tracking system for workers in a hazardous area, utilising a wireless mesh network.
The challenge of maximising site coverage with a limited number of access points provided ATP with an area mapping challenge, identifying high-risk areas, and areas requiring higher accuracy.
With every product requiring a rating for use in explosive atmospheres, each access point was housed in protective enclosures, and the active RFID tag was zone 1 rated to remain active even during a gas cloud.
ATP set up a separate RFID project team, with three staff operating out of the client’s office for 9 months.
