The partnership was announced at Intel’s Developer Forum in San Francisco on Sept. 11. It will integrate the AeroScout technology into Intel’s Core vPro processor used in enterprise mobile devices, including notebooks and tablets. The devices will be embedded AeroScout technology to deliver indoor location services over standard Wi-Fi networks.

Plant Engineering will host a Webcast on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 1 p.m. CST that will discuss how RFID technology has helped a glass manufacturer used its existing Wi-Fi infrastructure to improve productivity in its 500,000 sq. ft. facility. The Webcast is sponsored by AeroScout, and viewers can register for the Webcast at www.PlantEngineering.com.

“Mobility is transforming business and fundamentally changing the way we work,” said Dan Russell, director of marketing for Intel’s Business Client Platform Division in a press release announcing the deal with AeroScout. “That is why we’ve chosen to integrate location-based services directly into our latest mobile platforms with 4th generation Intel Core vPro 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 today's information-driven world, the ability to deliver the right information to the right person at the right time has the potential for all kinds of business benefits,” said Yuval Bar-Gil, AeroScout founder. “Information proactively delivered in real-time, based on where you are within your work environment, can help accelerate completing tasks more efficiently, as well as improve safety and security.”
