Indoor & Outdoor Vehicle Tracking for Manufacturing

We power an indoor/outdoor vehicle tracking solution designed to increase efficiencies in industrial and manufacturing environments.

In a factory setting, reduced process time equates to more throughput and lower costs. Therefore, factory managers are always looking for ways to reduce operational inefficiencies. In the automotive manufacturing world, hundreds of hours are lost each year due to looking for vehicles. We built an indoor / outdoor vehicle tracking solution that helps factory employees quickly locate vehicles in different zones and parking lots, reducing hours of work each week.

Business Problem / Pain Point

The last step of the inspection process at Toyota’s San Antonio manufacturing plant is the “Final Four” inspection area. Finished cars roll off the final assembly line at rates approaching one car every 30 seconds. Vehicles that fail final QA are diverted from outbound destinations and are randomly parked in large indoor and outdoor areas for further inspection and repair. Employees tasked with repairing defective vehicles typically work on different shifts and have difficulty finding specific VINs parked throughout the facility - often spending hours looking for cars - leading to frustration, increased labor costs, and operational inefficiency.

The Solution

We provided a fully turnkey solution to Toyota. We used low-cost, battery-powered trackers that can be quickly associated with vehicles that fail QA using VIN and/or work order number. The trackers use a combination of GPS and BLE to provide 3-5 meter accuracy of vehicle position both indoors and outdoors. Employees can use simple AWS-hosted web applications powered by the Leverege IoT Platform to find defective vehicles, see total inventory, and get walking directions to where the defective car is parked - saving significant time and resources.

The Architecture

Tracker indoor position is determined using Bluetooth Low Energy and outdoor location is determined using GPS. Sensors report their position and related information via cellular LTE-M connectivity to the Leverege Platform, where the data is stored in real-time and historical databases. With this architecture, this solution can live outside of existing IT infrastructure and avoid security concerns. Leverege created custom dashboards to make that data useful and actionable, allowing factory managers to track and monitor inventory, and empower floor employees to quickly locate and find the vehicle they are looking for.

Employees at the end of the assembly line quickly associate trackers to defective vehicles with a simple mobile app by scanning barcodes, QR codes, VIN plates, and/or work orders on the vehicle and the tracker. The solution includes a tailored dashboard that works on laptops and mobile phones showing tracked vehicles as they move through the facility and are parked. Users can visualize and export current and historical tracker/vehicle inventory

Users have access to zone-level vehicle location in indoor spaces through the use of BLE beacons. Highly precise outdoor location is provided via GPS in the various parking lots surrounding the manufacturing plant. To address the issue of trackers remaining on production-ready vehicles, employees can opt-in to receive text/email alerts and are provided with a visual indication on the web app when vehicles enter dynamically defined off-limits zones.

Applications for Any Industry

Automotive, manufacturing, healthcare, agriculture, supply chain/logistics, marine; whichever industry you're in, Leverege's customized asset management applications can be easily adapted to meet your business needs. IoT Changes Everything™.


Do you know the current location of all your important mobile assets? Enterprises waste significant resources manually inventorying assets, hunting down missing assets, and replacing assets that are permanently lost or stolen. This ultimately results in reduced operational efficiency, increased costs, and lost revenue.


Leverege's asset tracking application enables precise real-time and historical tracking of assets across indoor and outdoor locations. Always know the current location of your assets, set up alerts and notifications, and generate actionable insights to improve the efficiency of your organization.


Do you know the current status of all your important remote assets? It can be highly tedious and even dangerous to manually check the status of unattended assets. If you don't periodically check the status of your assets, you risk unexpected downtime, suboptimal utilization, and safety violations. This ultimately results in lost revenue, high maintenance costs, theft, and penalties if you fail to comply with regulations.


Leverege's remote monitoring application provides the real-time status of all your remote assets. No longer will you or your employees need to manually check assets, which means reduced costs, increased efficiency, and improved safety. Configure and set alerts so that you're notified during key events, such as an asset moving from where it's supposed to be or a temperature reading exceeding a threshold. Capture historical data for auditing and compliance, and apply machine learning to your data to generate predictive insights.


Organizations with complex operations and workflows can suffer from duplicated work, internal confusion, and high process overhead. Teams often need to transfer materials to each other to complete tasks, but information can get incorrectly relayed or lost, processing can get delayed, and bottlenecks can throttle throughput. As processes get more complicated, teams may create shadow systems as workarounds to a cumbersome workflow, further siloing an organization and fragmenting sources of truth.


Leverege’s workflow automation application unlocks powerful insights about organizational workflows and enables workflows to be digitized and even automated. With features including real-time asset tracking at meter-level accuracy, historical data aggregations, events and alerts, analytics dashboards, and inventory reporting, organizations can quickly identify workflow efficiencies and build new digital-first workflows to streamline operations and capture key data in one place.


Service-based organizations strive to deliver services faster and at lower cost, without comprising customer experience. However, processes like timekeeping or log entries are manual, error prone, unstandardized, and not real-time, making it hard to trust data quality and to accurately predict service times. These operational inefficiencies and unpredictable service times increase overhead costs and decrease customer satisfaction.


Leverege's machine learning-based service tracking application improves the customer experience and drives operational efficiency for a wide range of industries. Through integration with existing workflows and real-time detection of assets moving through process states, the application calculates expected service times and generates notifications at critical checkpoints. Historical data visualizations of session times and equipment usage empowers you to track promise time targets, make better resourcing decisions, and optimize throughput.
