Introducing Mobilaris Companion™- the next generation of IoT workforce safety

Mobilaris advances next-generation IoT workforce safety in a unique partnership with Ericsson and Sigma Connectivity.

In a unique IoT ecosystem partnership with Ericsson and Sigma Connectivity, Mobilaris is advancing the next generation workforce safety by introducing the new safety device Mobilaris Companion combining IoT technologies, such as 5G and UWB, to increase workforce safety for Industry 4.0. To address and improve workforce safety at industrial sites such as production floors, the combination of 5G and cellular IoT technology brings industries closer to a zero vision of workforce-related accidents.

Industrial sites can be dangerous work environments. The Mobilaris 5G-ready device collects information and high-accuracy positioning data in real-time. It offers proximity triggers and collision alerts using sensors, monitoring, and real-time positioning of people, vehicles, and moving assets. Worn by individual workers, the small device is equipped with sensors, enabling the user to react instantly if a dangerous situation would occur.  Ericsson’s latest cellular IoT design has been applied in the Mobilaris Companion, and Industry 4.0 users can now benefit from making complex work safety simple.

“We are excited to bring IoT industrial workforce safety to the market and utilize opportunities with Industry 4.0. It is an honor to collaborate with professional partners such as Ericsson and Sigma Connectivity. Together, we are developing a disruptive workforce safety offer that enables the zero-accident vision” says Mikael Nyström, CEO of Mobilaris Industrial Solutions.

Ericsson provides IoT Accelerator, an industry-leading IoT platform, enabling cost-efficient, reliable, and secure connectivity management and operations for any enterprise of any scale anywhere in the world, as well as Ardesco, Ericsson’s cellular IoT device reference design. With the help of the design house Sigma Connectivity, Mobilaris has accelerated their time to market and industrialized their device based on Ardesco. Mobile network provider Telia enables 5G communication services and connectivity on their public and private networks for seamless performance and efficiency.

“We are proud to have been able to support Mobilaris’ quest to develop advanced technology with real impact that saves lives. Sigma Connectivity has the unique ability to embrace a customer’s vision and efficiently executing on it end-to-end. Combining this with Mobilaris’ focused determination paved the way for a truly successful collaboration and exciting journey ahead”, says Henric Wainebro, Business Unit Head IoT Sigma Connectivity.

“Our IoT business is about fostering an innovation ecosystem, bringing together partners and devices on our global platform to progress the industry. This work with Mobilaris demonstrates the power of collaboration to bring cellular IoT devices to the market that positively impact industries and people’s safety. Enhancing industry and our daily lives through our technology and innovation are at the core of Ericsson’s DNA.”, says Kyle Okamoto, General Manager Ericsson IoT.
