Stanley Black & Decker Brings Location-Based Services To Enterprise Mobile Devices Using AeroScout Technology

IDF13 – At the Intel Developer Forum 2013 today, Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK) announced that it is working with Intel to bring the benefits of indoor Location-Based Services (LBS) to enterprises everywhere.

Intel is utilizing STANLEY’s industry-leading AeroScout® Wi-Fi Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, and has integrated the technology into the 4 th generation Intel Core vPro processor used in enterprise mobile devices, from notebooks to tablets to Ultrabook 2-in-1 designs. These devices will come fully enabled with embedded AeroScout technology to deliver indoor location services over standard Wi-Fi networks, opening up new opportunities for enterprises across a range of industries—from manufacturing to energy to retail to healthcare—to increase productivity, safety and security.

“Mobility is transforming business and fundamentally changing the way we work,” said Dan Russell, Director of Marketing for Intel’s Business Client Platform Division. “That is why we’ve chosen to integrate location-based services directly into our latest mobile platforms with 4 th generation Intel® Core TM vPro TM processors. This will enable organizations to more easily deploy advanced location services without the need for any additional client hardware or software. We chose to work with AeroScout because its technology is deployed in some of the broadest use cases and most demanding environments around the globe.”

In industrial environments such as manufacturing plants, for example, organizations can use the Intel LBS capability to deliver location-specific instructions to a mobile worker or enable a transport vehicle equipped with an Intel-based mobile device to quickly locate a particular item within the site, increasing factory efficiency and throughput. In healthcare environments, such as large acute care facilities or senior living campuses, where caregivers and equipment are constantly on the move, the Intel LBS capability can be used to track Wi-Fi-enabled devices, such as mobile workstations and laptops, or to identify the nearest medical equipment, reducing response times to patient issues while maximizing operational efficiency and utilization. Employees in large, multi-location business and government organizations can also use their new location-aware devices to more quickly locate printers, conference rooms or other local resources.
