Signify Supplies Connected Lighting System to Create IoT-based Smart Warehouse

Signify announced that it installed Interact Industry in the newly developed warehouse facility of Pilkington Automotive in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, marking its entrance into the Industrial IoT space. This cloud-based, wireless connected lighting system is specifically designed for warehouses and manufacturing facilities.

Pilkington Automotive, part of NSG Group, is one of the world’s largest suppliers of automotive glass. Its new European central warehouse meets the latest storage systems and warehouse design standards and is fully aligned with the company’s future-orientated business approach.

Signify’s Interact Industry software enables Pilkington Automotive to analyze all data collected through smart sensors embedded in the lighting system, utilizing the data to improve the warehouse and process layout continuously. For example, with data insights on the intensity of space usage over time, actions can be taken to reduce inefficiencies in order-picking time in the warehouse.

The system also increases the warehouse’s energy efficiency and makes it more sustainable. “Compared to sites where conventional lighting is used, the new system achieves up to 50% energy savings by adapting the lighting to demand, using daylight harvesting and presence sensors. This is on top of the significant savings already achieved by changing to LED lighting. Also, the carbon footprint at Pilkington Automotive can be reduced by 290 tonnes of CO2 each year,” said Marcel Devereaux, Category Manager Energy Projects, NSG Group.
