Press release: Symeo at the China Hi-Tech Fair 2017

Innovative LPR® radar technology provides safe operation processes and optimal protection for crane systems

Neubiberg (Germany), November 10, 2017 – Radar specialist Symeo GmbH will exhibit at the China Hi-Tech Fair in Shenzhen from November 16 to November 21 in hall 1, booth 1A91-9. The focus will be on Symeo's patented LPR® radar technology, which provides optimal crane system safety and high efficiency for operational and transport processes. As an innovative provider of precise positioning and reliable anti-collision solutions, Symeo sold a series of sensor units last year to one of China's largest steel manufacturers for the use in a large-scale automation project.

Increased safety, more efficiency and higher availability: Symeo's wireless sensor systems are deployed wherever real-time localization of cranes and industrial vehicles, seamless movement tracking and timely detection of potential collisions are required. Using contactless wireless measurements, the radar-based systems continuously tracks crane and vehicle positions in order to optimize logistics, transport and production processes. The positioning and distance measurement sensors from Symeo are based on a proprietary local positioning radar technology that does not interfere with existing WiFi networks. The technology is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications and works extremely robust and maintenance-free.

Large-scale automation project in China using Symeo LPR®-1DHP radar sensors

Last year Symeo carried out an automation project for one of China's largest iron and steel companies. The project involved the installation of 52 LPR®-1DHP sensor units in a steel works for the real-time positioning of cranes, complete tracking of the crane movements and to protect the crane systems against collisions. Because of their high availability, the wear-and-tear-free radar systems are frequently installed in demanding industrial work environments with a high degree of dust, dirt and vibrations - such as in the metal and steel industry, in the mining sector, for bulk material handling processes and for container terminal operations. In addition, Symeo´s wireless sensors are impervious to extreme weather conditions such as heat, direct sunlight and rain.

About the China Hi-Tech Fair

The China Hi-Tech Fair, with its focus on state-of-the-art technologies, has been held each year since 1999 and is one of the most influential trade fairs in China. The fair attracted 600,000 visitors in 2016, where 3,533 companies and organizations exhibited in the 150,000-square-meter space. The exhibition serves as a forum for decision-makers, as well as a showcase for investment opportunities and the chance to network with industry professionals.
