Jan. 11, 2016 – ARC Informatique and Ubiquicom say they have joined forces to bring location awareness and safety to SCADA applications. ARC Informatique is an independent provider in HMI/SCADA software, while Ubiquicom is a technology company specializing in the design and development of products and solutions for the positioning and tracking of people and assets in unconventional contexts. This partnership manifests a joint effort to instill mobility at the heart of supervisory systems, said the parties. Based on the real-time monitoring of biometric and environmental parameters, Ubiquicom claims to add an upper layer application to the PcVue Geo Map Control with its Locator Suite. Promising to be easy to configure and performed via Web services, the new features allow the detection and tracking of people and assets directly displayed as PcVue markers (which can be symbols) in a geographical map. Suitable for indoor/outdoor detection and tracking, ARC Informatique says its positioning services perform regardless of network type and available communications (GSM, WiFi, Bluetooth, BLE).
