Quarion Technology Inc. began when founder, Aric Pryor pondered two questions:
Do employers know where all of their people are and if they are safe?
How can I improve worker safety by utilizing technology to know their location in real-time?
The annual number of injuries and/or fatalities related to personnel and forklifts or other powered vehicles is staggering – real-time precision location can help solve this!.
Emergency evacuation related to fires, chemical spills, and other disasters that lead to loss of life – real-time location can help solve this!
From that realization, he began to advance his vision by developing and expanding technologies that would help to eliminate accidents related to workers and their proximity to dangerous environments.
Now, a few years later… Quarion is doing what Pryor envisioned and more:
Quarion Technology, a leading Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) company, is dedicated to helping warehouse, distribution center, and factory managers achieve incredible levels of productivity while improving overall employee safety. This is achieved through the employment of Quarion’s Ultra-Wideband (UWB) based ATLAR-5DTM real-time location system. ATLAR-5DTM delivers precision micro-location in indoor settings to provide real-time tracking of powered industrial vehicles, employees, assets, and inventory while providing wireless data-backhaul, dynamic geo-fencing, vehicle/machine speed control (and shut-down) with user specific cloud dashboards and analytics tools (Q-LytixTM). Quarion’s innovative approach to Industry 4.0 and IIoT is game-changing!
